Big Three say they could work with federal
Little bit of history trivia. It was this week, actually yesterday, in 1961, that Fidel Castro announced he was a Marxist and would turn Cuba into a communist country where the government would take over all the major industries. Or as we call that today, a bailout. - Jay Leno

Racism Comes In All Forms
The owners of the Faubus Motel in northwest Arkansas say they replaced Old Glory with a Confederate flag outside their business after the election of Barack Obama - but not because the new president is black...."We think socialism is deeply rooted in him, and we'll see it manifest in all areas," Linda Vandiver told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. "This doesn't have anything to do with Mr. Obama's color. We'd like to celebrate the fact that for the first time we have a black president. But we can't."
Well, the Big Three car boys left their private jets at home and came in electric cars. They still donít get it. The American people donít want to see them in electric cars, but chairs.- Laugh Lines

"According to this week's Newsweek, in this bad economy, a lot of wealthy people are feeling what's known as luxury shame. They're embarrassed about their wealth while others are hurting. Although they say, after a few bottles of Cristal, that feeling goes away." --Jay Leno
Three federal judges seem
overcrowding in California prisons is so bad it leads to unconstitutional
conditions. Now they must weigh whether ordering the release of nearly a
third of the state's inmates would be a public safety nightmare.
The state stuffs its 33 adult prisons with nearly twice as many inmates as they were designed to house. Attorneys representing the inmates asked the judges on Thursday to order the state to trim about 52,000 inmates from the current population of 156,300 over the next two years.
The most fun of these exit interviews with the president is going to be watching the news anchors try to delicately assess whether this president realize just how bad he has f***ed this thing up [on screen: Gibson asking Bush various questions, trying to gauge what he thinks the American people think about his presidency. Gibson also asks Bush if there was an 'uh-oh' moment]. An 'uh-oh' moment? Why do we have to talk to this jackass like he's four? When did foolhardy war and economic collapse become 'uh-oh' moments? Mr. President, I have a question. Did you make a boom boom in the Middle East? Look at me, I'm asking you a question!" --Jon Stewart
