"(The Weakest Link) is fascinating program. They ask a bunch of people questions and
they keep getting rid of the dumbest person, so just the smartest person is left. It is kind of the opposite way we elect
a president." Jay Leno

"George W. Bush, I'm telling you, this guy has no luck when it comes to China. Last night,
for example, he's out having dinner at a Chinese restaurant and they bring him the fortune cookie. He opens it up guess what it's another ballot for Al Gore." David Letterman
"George Bush's approval rating has dropped from 60% to 53%. It doesn't seem like that much

needs is a sex scandal.'" David Letterman

for salmonella. Can you get more Republican than this? Screw these little weasel kids. So many people protested that they're

drinking water would kill the germs." Jay Leno

one of those states that voted Republican." David Letterman
"The situation with China is starting to get a little dicey. On the news tonight they said

about whether he's really white." San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown
