John McCain was awesome last night roasting Barack Obama at the annual Al Smith Foundation Dinner. It’s crazy—but it’s true. He totally killed! “I’m the underdog in these final weeks…. 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! Where’s Bill by the way? Can’t he take one night off from his tireless quest to make the man who defeated his wife the next President?” Yow! Plus: “I understand that Keith Olbermann has ordered up his own Mission Accomplished banner—and they can hang that in whatever padded room has been arranged for him…. Just call me and I’ll tell them right where to put it.” Who knew?
