Yes, there are some funny lines. But as Governor Romney and President Obama trade barbs at Thursday night's Al Smith dinner, it strikes me the two sides are just a little too cozy.
Maybe it's not so much that our political parties are all that different. Maybe it's just the branding of them makes it appear so. And each side does seem to love having the other to play off of.
I kind of felt like I was watching a couple of Neros fiddling as America crumbles.
C-SPAN has video of the event. After introductions, Mr.Romney speaks first. Mr. Obama follows.
