Its nice to see the two candidates being civil and even jovial to each other.

A day after their last debate, John Mccain and Barack Obama were at a charity dinner, where they jovailly roasted each other.  My favorite from McCain:

“Joe the Plumber recently signed a very lucrative contract with a wealthy couple to handle all the work on all seven of their houses,” he added, alluding to his many homes around the United States.

— On his underdog status: “There are signs of hope, even in the most unexpected places, even in this room full of proud Manhattan Democrats. I can’t shake that feeling that some people here are pulling for me. I’m delighted to see you here tonight, Hillary!”

— On the way he referred to Obama in their second debate: “This campaign needed the common touch of a working man. After all, it began so long ago with the heralded arrival of a man known to Oprah Winfrey as ‘the one.’ Being a friend and colleague of Barack, I just called him “that one.” He doesn’t mind at all. In fact, he even has a pet name for me — George Bush.”

From Barack:

— Barack, in Swahili means, “That One!”

— “Contrary to the rumors you have heard, I was not born in a manger. I was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father, Jor-el, to save the planet Earth,” a reference to Superman.
