"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Reciprocal Roasts

Barack Obama and John McCain appeared at the Alfred E. Smith benefit dinner in NYC last night to benefit Catholic Charities of New York. This is a long standing tradition in political circles. The event is named after Alfred E. Smith, the first Catholic candidate to run for President. He took on Herbert Hoover in 1928 and lost but later played a big role in the Roosevelt administration.

Each candidate had the opportunity to perform and it was magical. Both did very well.

Here is McCain's (apologies for the Faux News feed!)

And here is Obama's (from MSNBC)
