Craig Ferguson: "There are strikes all over France because the government wants to raise the retirement age. The strikes are threatening the French way of life. Yesterday, an American walked all the way across Paris without getting insulted."
Bill Maher: "A very joyous week. A week where the whole world was watching a bunch of men trying to climb out of a hole they dug for themselves -- but enough about the Democrats. Let's talk about those Chilean miners."

Jay Leno: "The Obama administration has lifted the six-month ban on deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, provided that the oil companies follow the new safety regulations. For example, there has to be at least one sober person on the rig at all times."

Jay Leno: "President Obama has moved a 12-day tour of India and Asia to right after the November election. I can't imagine why he would want to leave the country right after the midterm election."
