John McCain participated in a "Meet The Candidate" forum this morning in New Hampshire.
The event took place at Devine Millimet, a top-shelf New England law firm. The forum was co-sponsored by the Manchester Chamber of Commerce.
About 100 people attended the event. Most of them lawyers.
McCain opened his prepared remarks with a joke, "What's the difference between a catfish and a lawyer?" he asked the crowd.
"One is a sucking bottom dweller and the other is a fish."
Of course we know McCain was only kidding.
And the white shoe crowd did to.
They cheered loudly.
