Not politics as usual

A couple of nights ago at the Al Smith Memorial Charity Foundation Dinner, the two presidential candidates were pretty funny. Much funnier than I actually would have ever anticipated of either of them. You can check them out at the following links if you didn't see it. Kind of makes them each a little more human, and in some instances, almost likeable.

Also, did anyone notice at the debate the other night when McCain repeatedly talked about Autism and how Sara Palin knows about that? Has anyone explained to McCain and/or his note writers that there's a difference between Autism and Down Syndrome? It might have been ok if he'd only made the reference once, but he did it multiple times. Maybe most people didn't notice, and maybe I'm just more aware because I used to work at an agency that served people with disabilities. I don't know, but that whole thing was definitely very weird to me.
