Funnies: Lighter Side of Economics

Here's a roundup of the late night comics.

The Daily Show

Jon Stewart: A funny story. You all know that money we've been giving to the banks? They don't have it anymore!

The Tonight Show

Jay Leno: Barack Obama said today, again, he wants to raise taxes on the rich. That's provided if, by November, anyone is still rich.

Jimmy Kimmel Live

Jimmy Kimmel: The government has bailed two huge financial companies out and today they strongly hinted that they would bail the rest of them out at taxpayers' expense. All part of a new approach that they're taking to the economy, called socialism.

The Tonight Show

Jay Leno: We are entering a new chapter in the American economy. I believe it's chapter 11.

Late Night

Conan O'Brien: President Bush doing his best to respond to the crisis. [light laugher] I love that that gets giggles. When that's not even a joke.

The Daily Show

Jon Stewart: The crisis affected four Americans in a deeply personal way. McCain: The American economy is in a crisis. Obama: The most serious financial crisis that we've seen. Biden: The crisis that you've been facing on Main Street. It is now hitting Wall Street. Palin: Let me tell you something's going on today in our world. Particularly here in our nation that needs some shaking up and some fixing. Stewart: (long very sarcastic pause with lots of laughter) Did she win a contest?!
