If I Only Had McCain

Barack Obama was the "Toast of the Town," or at least a hit of the annual Gridiron dinner in DC. He definitely can find a career in comedy. His speech is reprinted at Best of Gridiron: Obama, Lynne Cheney and Bush. Worth a chuckle, so check it out.

The Chicago Trib's Blog, The Swamp, also has an account of Obama and the Roast, including a take off song from the Wizard of Oz, "If I Only Had McCain," about the tiff between the two over ethics reform.

He had some good lines, for example: "You know, the Gridiron Club is an aging institution with a long, proud history, known today primarily for providing a forum for jokes.

"To some,'' he said, "that may sound like the Democratic Party."
