-David Letterman

"John McCain seems reinvigorated. He has a new campaign slogan, 'he’ll lead you into the 21st century.' I like it better than his old slogan, 'he’ll lead you into assisted living.'"

-David Letterman

"Congratulations to the new nation of Kosovo. They gained their independence this week. Of course, President Bush was shocked when he heard this. He said, 'Independence? But we haven’t even invaded them yet.'"

-Jay Leno

"Cuban dictator Fidel Castro announced he is stepping down, ending five decades of rule. The biggest surprise is when Castro announced he’s going to retire in Miami."

"Hillary Clinton is campaigning in Texas. They’re really nervous over at the Hillary camp. To give you an idea how nervous she is, she showed up in a pantsuit and chaps. Last week in Wisconsin, she showed up in a cheese pantsuit."

-Conan O'Brien

"Steven Spielberg pulled out of the Beijing Olympics. He wasn’t competing or anything . . . he was the artistic adviser. He quit because of China’s poor record on human rights. Chinese officials were so upset they couldn’t torture anyone all week."
