Craig Ferguson: Can you tell us why you commuted Scooter Libby's sentence?
Bush impersonator: It's a mercy thing Ferg-alopoulos. How's a guy named Scooter supposed to survive in prison?

Jennifer Lange: A federal court ruled the White House must release suspected al Qaeda agent Ali Al-Mari. Al-Mari says he just wants to put all of this behind him and return to flight school.
