Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

2008 Al Smith Dinner

What a great reprieve from the bitterness of the past few weeks, though the barbs are definitely there with the self deprecation... I guess that's why it's a roast. Enjoy! I certainly did.

John McCain Part I,

Barack Obama Part I,

And no that was not intentional to have McCain's coming from Fox and Obama's video from MSNBC that's just how I found them.

I'm missing "Part II" from both candidates speeches, any resourceful internetsers out there uploaded these yet? And if I'm able at some point in time if I can find the whole segments I'll replace these with them.

We did a roast at the party I did for my Master's graduation back in May. Having the guests rip me up and down for 30 minutes was a bit of an experience, to say the least.

But as much as I dish it out on my blog, I should be able to take it.

Youtube has the McCain broken up into 5 or 6 parts. Once you got one one of them, the others appear in the sidebar. I haven't seem an entire one yet for McCain.

The MSNBC clip I saw (courtesy of G) had 1/2 of McCain and all of Obama. It skipped the whole "where's Bill" and the Zoroastrian New Year's bit.

Just realized where it would be, without annoying graphics or scroll bars.
