Gold Star Winner: October 16, 2008

Sens. Barack Obama (D-IL) and John McCain (R-AZ)
One Of These Guys Will Be President

Tonight, the candidates spoke at the Al Smith Dinner right here in New York City. It's a white-tie, uber-exclusive charity event that also serves as a roast for the presidential candidates.

Obama and McCain are awarded a joint Gold Star tonight for delivering a series of hilarious zingers. Here are the award-winning favorites:

Obama: "I obviously never knew your grandfather (Al Smith IV), but from everything Senator McCain has told me, the two of them had a great time together before Prohibition."

McCain: "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."

And there ya go. Boo-yeah.

Nice choice for this gold star. It was nice to see both of them being funny human beings (McCain in particular was so creepy in the last debate, it was good to see this side of him)
