If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.

The US Election Is a Joke - Seriously !
The Al Smith Memorial Dinner in NYC reveals the US Election Program. These guys just play two different parts from the same script. The Al Smith Memorial Dinner is two weeks before the US Presidential Election in NYC. It features both candidates making light of each other. However under closer scrutiny it is an aggressive disinformation operation which weakens any serious challenges to the character or qualification of either candidate.This event distracts attention from the policies or agendas that the next president may implement. It also brings into question the influence of the Vatican on official US policy.
...of course on the brighter side these guy got off some great jokes !
John McCain - The Al Smith Memorial Dinner Speech
Barack Obama - The Al Smith Memorial Dinner Speech
The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner is an annual charity fund raiser for Catholic Charities. It is organized by the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation in honor of former New York Governor Al Smith, the first Catholic presidential candidate. The first dinner was in 1945, the year after Al Smith's death. The 2008 dinner raised $3.9 million.In recent years the candidates have traditionally given humorous speeches.
Special bonus - Sarah Palin on SNLThe practice of the candidates appearing on a comedy skit show like SNl helps blur the line between what are the policies of the campaigns and what is a twisted joke !
