Comedy Tuesdays

Now this is what I like to see-- comedians piling on the administration. They could be funnier, but I'll take what I can get.

"Karl Rove is in a lot of trouble. The White House says today that President Bush is standing by his top advisor Karl Rove even though Rove apparently revealed the identity of a CIA agent. However, Bush did say he would fire Rove if he revealed the end of `Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.'"
--Conan O'Brien

"This is a tough situation for President Bush because he and Rove are very close. And a friend of both was quoted saying today they finish each other's sentences. Although I am pretty sure Bush starts the sentence, and then the other guy finishes."
--Jay Leno

"Suspicion for the leak was immediately cast on White House adviser and long-time Bush confidante Karl Rove, known as one of the few men in Washington with flesh-colored hair."
--Jon Stewart

"Karl Rove is really not worried about this because he knows Bush is extremely loyal to his staff. He never likes to fire his staff---not out of loyalty; he hates having to learn new names."
--Jay Leno
