Jokes from Leno, Conan and Fallon
Jan 13, 2010
Sen. Chris Dodd "allegedly received sweetheart loans from Countrywide Mortgage...while he was chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, although he claims he didn't realize he was getting special treatment. He said he didn't understand how the bank loan system worked, which would be a good argument if you weren't the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee!"
Conan O'Brien: "If he's convicted, the underwear bomber could be sentenced to life in federal prison. ... But even worse, for the rest of his life, he'll be known as the underwear bomber."
Conan O'Brien: "Next week, President Obama will visit the auto show in Detroit and look at cars from the Big Three automakers. ... Or, as the Big Three automakers put it, 'The new owner is coming for a visit.'"
Conan O'Brien: "Yesterday, a naked jogger was stopped near the White House. ... Secret Service grabbed the man and immediately allowed him to attend a state dinner."
Jimmy Fallon: "That couple that crashed the White House state dinner back in November...[is] hosting a party at a nightclub in Las Vegas next weekend. But to get in you have to not be on the list."
