Laughs with Leno
Oct 15, 2008
“Today is Columbus Day, which means all the banks are closed. At least I think that’s why they’re closed.”
Jay Leno: “Today they gave out the Nobel prize for economics. Why?!”
Jay Leno: “The finance ministers of the world’s top economies met in Washington for an emergency meeting on the banking crisis. … While they were meeting, they gave President Bush some Monopoly money to play with so he’d feel involved.”
Jay Leno: “Former President Jimmy Carter blasted President Bush, blaming the financial crisis on him. Carter called this the ‘worst financial crisis since the Carter Administration.’”
Jay Leno: “But the good news” is that the “stock market went up over 900 points today. … This is the best thing to happen to the John McCain campaign since -- actually, it’s the first good thing to happen” to the McCain campaign.
Jay Leno: “Not been a good weekend for Governor Palin. In a 263-page report, Alaskan officials said she abused the powers of her office, and that was an ethics violation. Wow, she’s only been on the national scene a month,” and “already she has an ethics violation. Who says she’s not ready for Washington, huh?!”
