I enjoyed the 2008 version of this event quite a bit more, and thought John McCain was actually pretty funny.

This year, someone needed to tell Mitt Romney that you're supposed to make a few jokes about yourself at these events. He seemed to think it was a roast of President Obama and treated it more like another campaign stop, rather than a charity event.
