Obama also poked fun at his Democratic National Convention acceptance speech, which he delivered before a crowd of tens of thousands at an outdoor football stadium on an elaborately constructed stage.
"I was originally told we'd be able to move this outdoors to Yankee Stadium," he said of the dinner.
Then, pausing and looking around, he said, "Could somebody tell me what happened to the Greek columns that I requested?"****************
McCain lampooned Obama's primary opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, as well as himself.
"Even in this room full of proud Manhattan Democrats, I can't shake the feeling that some people here are pulling for me," he said, before adding: "I'm delighted to see you here tonight, Hillary."
He also said Obama "is ready for any contingency, even the possibility of a sudden and dramatic market rebound. I'm told that at the first sign of a recovery, he will suspend his campaign and fly immediately to Washington to address the crisis," said the Republican, who drew criticism when he suspended his campaign a few weeks ago and flew to Washington during the crisis.
Pastor Wright and a Barack Obama arrived in Heaven at the same time. Saint Peter checked them both in and assigned them their rooms. "Pastor Wright, here is the key to one of our standard efficiency units. But for you, Mr. Obama, here's the key to the finest penthouse suite in Heaven." "Why don't I get a penthouse too? I'm a minister!" Pastor Wright complained. "Think about it," Saint Peter replied, "There are plenty of ministers up here, but Obama is the first lawyer or politician we've ever seen."
