Here's a roundup of the late-night comics.
Saturday Night Live
What's that name they call her, Cara… Cara… what do they call her again, Tina?
Palin: Um, that would be Caribou Barbie.
Baldwin: Thank you, Tina. This is the most important election in our nation's history, and you want her, our Tina, to go out there and stand there with that horrible woman?
What do you have to say for yourself?
Lorne: Alec, this is Gov. Palin.
Baldwin: Hi there. I see. Forgive me, but I feel I must say this. You are way hotter in person.
Jimmy Kimmel Live
One of the big topics last night was a guy named Joe the Plumber. (*Montage of Obama and McCain saying Joe from debate with counter counting the "Joe"s.) "Joe the Plumber, Joe the Plumber, Joe the Plumber, Joe's money, Joe, Joe, Joe." Kimmel:
26 Joe the Plumbers. A new record by the way.
Okay, what would I cut? I would have, first of all, an across-the-board spending freeze, OK. That some people say that's a hatchet. That's a hatchet, and then I would get out a scalpel, OK. Colbert:
Yes, when it comes to the budget, McCain is like a brain surgeon from the 1600s.
The Daily Show
Sen. Obama, I am not President Bush. If you wanted to run against President Bush you should have run four years ago.
Stewart: Run in 2004? You think I'm inexperienced now!
SNL Weekend Update
I built me a bridge it ain't going nowhere. [Guys as Eskimos: Ooo] Mccain/Palin going to put the nail in the coffin of the media elite. She likes red meat. Shoot a mother/humpin moose eight days of the week. [Gunshots]
