Leno & Letterman Laughs
Feb 18, 2009
: "Prosecutors have asked a Federal judge to send...Marion Barry," the former mayor of Washington, DC, "to...jail for failing to file tax returns for the eighth time in nine years. Hasn't paid taxes for eight years straight." So for Barry, it's "either jail or a cabinet position in the Obama Administration. Either one."
Jay Leno: "Well, today, the heads of the eight largest banks testified before Congress. Bank CEOs in a room full of politicians -- they had to flip a coin to see who's going to tell the first lie."
David Letterman: "I hate to be critical this early into the new Administration, but I don't know if this Timothy Geithner is the guy for the job. He may not be up to it. Turns out, he thought the Treasury Secretary...was in charge of buried treasure."
