As you all know, Barack Obama is over in the Middle East. Hey, did you see him playing basketball with our troops in Iraq? Did you see that one shot he made from 40 feet? Let me tell you something. If shooting baskets is now a requirement to be president, a white guy may never have that job again. - Jay Leno

Condoleezza: Not So Fast Obama

"Sen. Obama is a senator, let's remember. He sits on the Foreign Relations Committee and he is a candidate for president. He is all of those things," Condoleezza Rice said. "But he has said, and we continue to act on the basis, as do our foreign partners, that this government remains in power until January 2009."

"A lot of people think, to take some of the spotlight off of Barack Obama, that John McCain will announce his vice presidential choice this week. And most think it's gonna be Mitt Romney. See, I don't know. You know, when Romney and McCain stand together, doesn't it look like one of those slick Countrywide lenders trying to trick your grandfather into reverse mortgage?" --Jay Leno

Robert Novak aka "The Prince of Darkness"


The pedestrian who was struck by prominent Washington columnist and commentator Robert Novak is in worse shape than first thought, a hospital source tells ABC 7 News...Novak said he did not know he had struck anyone and he didn't know anything was wrong until a bicyclist rode ahead of him and blocked traffic. The bicyclist, attorney David Bono, informed Novak he had hit a pedestrian....Bono dismissed Novak's assertion that he never saw the struck pedestrian." There was a pedestrian splayed on his windshield -- I don't think there is any way you can miss that."



Turns out this is not the first time Novak has had a run-in with pedestrians. The Washington Post's Lloyd Grove reported back in March of 2001 that CNN researcher Evan Glass was walking across Pennsylvania Avenue at noon one day when he passed in front of Novak's Corvette. "Learn to read the signs!" Novak snapped, according to Glass. Novak told Grove: "He was crossing on the red light. I really hate jay walkers. I despise them. Since I don't run the country, all I can do is yell at 'em. The other option is to run 'em over, but as a compassionate conservative, I would never do that."

"Well, experts say gas prices should fall by up to three cents a gallon over the next week. Three cents a gallon, how about that? Well, this is just in preparation for gas rising to $8 a gallon by Labor Day." --Jay Leno

Shooting the Messengers


It is becoming less unusual to hear of American journalists abroad who are detained, kidnapped or even killed in the line of duty. But for local journalists across Africa, Asia and the Mideast, kidnapping, detentions and threats to their families are disturbingly familiar.

Journalists from these places assume a target on their backs the moment they pick up a pen, and conduct their work dodging the scopes of local mafias, corrupt officials - and now, the U.S. government.

Republican Turns On Cheney

"Dick, I'm beyond that," Chambliss reports he told the vice president, adding that Cheney is "my good friend and my hunting buddy, but my mind was made up" to back his local doctors and senior citizens.

He did not repeat Cheney's reaction.
