Barack Obama tells jokes at the Al Smith dinner, three weeks before the election.
Obama observes that he was much more awake in the second debate, having gotten a nice long nap during the first one. He said he had done some shopping in New York City; he heard Gov. Romney had done some shopping for some stores in New York City. Of Romney: ‘Actually, “Mitt” is his middle name. I wish I could use my middle name.’
‘I was hoping the president would bring Joe Biden along this evening– because he’ll laugh at anything.’
