    Did anyone else see Obama's and McCain's speeches at the dinner? They played them live on Rachel Maddow's show?

    McCain is funnier. ;)

    But they both did very well.

    I wonder what the cost per plate was. I wonder how many homeowners that could've helped while mortgage rates soared to an all-time high today. Meanwhile our two political pundints who say they know what it's like to be the average joe, are mucking it up with Washington elite.

    Change, huh?

    We want the next president to show that all is lost, we're fuked, and we've already agreed to the breakup of 'empire.'
