The Latest From Late Night Comedians
Political humor in the late night monologues featured several jabs at the dated information used for the new terror alerts, as well as the convergence of the Bush and Kerry campaigns in Davenport, Iowa.
"I guess you heard today, the White House released a terror warning for the Olympics. Okay. It was the 1980 Olympics. They admit the information is a little old."
"Al Qaeda's plan is to bring the nation's big businesses and major corporations to their knees. They want to destroy these companies. Oh, that's Ralph Nader's platform. I'm sorry."
"Today, campaigning in Iowa, President Bush said the other side meaning John Kerry he said, 'The other side just talks a good game.' Well, nobody can accuse Bush of that, huh?"
"It's a little frightening, the terror alert information was four years old. Four years old! I can't wait until 2008 and find out what's going on now."
"John Kerry and George W. Bush both were campaigning in Davenport, Iowa. Amazing? How can one town handle so much excitement?"
"Both President Bush and John Kerry campaigned in Davenport, Iowa, just a few blocks from each other. This allowed voters the chance to get scared to death or bored to death."
"1980's rock stars are launching a concert to defeat George Bush. I don't think it is working. Kerry and Edwards are running behind Hall and Oates."
