A roundup of the late-night comics.
David Letterman: Boy, it was so nice, weather today was beautiful. So nice today, Iran is holding Ben & Jerry.
The Tonight Show
Jay Leno: I think the pressure is starting to get to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. Did you hear about today? Tried to fire the cast of "Boston Legal."
Bill Maher: The president also had a moving ceremony this week for the Tuskegee airmen. You know, the all-black aviation squadron from World War II. A lot of these guys in their late 80s now. They were given gold medals. They were thanked. They were honored. And then they were reactivated and sent to Iraq.
The Colbert Report
Stephen Colbert: Fact is Baghdad is in great shape. Like Michigan Representative Tim Walberg said last week, quote: "In many places it's as safe and as cared for as Detroit." That's the way you represent the people of Michigan. Those tourist dollars must be pouring in.
The Daily Show
Jon Stewart: Bush remains embroiled in the scandal over the firing of eight United States attorneys for what appear to be political motives. Democrats want top White House aides to testify under oath in public with a transcript. And the White House would love to do that, but unfortunately there's this little overriding principle.
President Bush: It is important that we maintain executive privilege in the White House. That's part of the deliberative process. That's how I'm able to get good, sound opinions from people.
Jon Stewart: And then ignore them.
The Tonight Show
Leno: And former presidential candidate Tom Vilsack -- remember he announced his candidacy on our show?
Kevin Eubanks: Oh, yeah, right.
Leno: And then hours later quit the race. Says he is now officially endorsing Hillary Clinton. Well, that should put her over the top, huh? Unless, of course, Walter Mondale comes out for Dennis Kucinich, then it's wide open again.
