Grandmother will trade Pot Roast for Political Roast

My grandmother wants to watch Obama and McCain in the Smith dinner again (and again!) She has dialup internet, and is about as net savvy as one would expect. Can the hivemind help?

I just talked to my 80 year old grandmother and she was tickled at the jokes from the Senators in the roast last night. She liked that the humor was clean and self deprecating and a nice break from all the campaign negativity. (She's a sweetheart, my gran). She says she wishes she could see them again and watch them from time to time. They're on YouTube, but her internet is slow; I think she'd be better watching on a DVD or at least as a file on her computer.
Any ideas? Do they sell these things on DVD? Is it available for download?
She has a Mac. I have a PC and cable internet.
I am in no hurry, though I am driving to her state tonight to visit.
