Campaign humor from Leno and Letterman
NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno":

"It's May sweeps, which is a big dilemma for the White House, I mean should they bring out Osama bin Laden now, or wait till November?

"June 30 is the day we're handing sovereignty back to the Iraqis; hey forget sovereignty, I think they'd be happy just to get their clothes back...."

"I'm sure you know President Bush has been driving across Ohio in a huge campaign bus with 'Bush-Cheney' written on the side of it; and I guess yesterday the president really got startled when another bus went by, and he said 'Hey, is there some guy called Greyhound in this race?"'

CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman":

"President Bush by the way ... he was interviewed on Arabic television. His interview went very well, lasted about five minutes, he raised $3 million.

"And then, John Kerry spent the day reading to preschoolers ... and the kids said Kerry actually lacked warmth and failed to articulate a clear message.

"And then, Bush also read to preschoolers and he raised over $3 million."

This is actually how the "Goring" happened, our beloved comedians pick up on some piece of tripe and run it into the dirt. No matter how untrue.

7. it's not too bad
I've been watching Leno, his jokes about Bush are pretty cutting,
and the ones about Kerry are much more harmless. A lot of jokes about
how big his head is, which I think are pretty funny. :-)
