Leno, Letterman & Conan
Sep 24, 2008
"You know, last night, they had the 60th Emmy Awards. What a star-studded affair that was. There were more celebrities there than" at a "Barack Obama fundraiser."
Jay Leno: "I guess the miniseries 'John Adams' set a new Emmy record last night" with "13 wins. So, a guy from the 1700s can still win today. That is good news for John McCain."
Jay Leno: "See, you know the way a bailout works? Here's the way a bailout works. A failed president and a failed Congress invest $700 billion of your money in failed businesses. Believe me, this can't fail."
Jay Leno: "The first presidential debate will take place this Friday night. They say John McCain's challenge will be to distance himself from President Bush," while "Obama's challenge will be to answer questions before his supporters can start clapping."
David Letterman: "By the way, as the campaign goes on, we're learning more and more about Senator John McCain," who "apparently...has 13 cars." But "he can't remember where he parked any of them."
Conan O'Brien: "President Bush has been speaking out about the Wall Street bailout. And today, a reporter asked him what he planned to do about AIG. ... Bush got upset and said, 'Why does everyone always spell in front of me?'"
