July 15, 2007 — -- A roundup of the late-night comics.

David Letterman: You hear about this? Al Gore's son was arrested speeding, doing 100 miles an hour. And Al has already made a movie about it, it's called, "An Inconvenient Son."

Jay Leno: Because of the war in Iraq, President Bush's popularity now plunged to 2 percent BC. Two percent BC. You know what that means, BC? "Below Carter." It doesn't get any worse than that.

Conan O'Brien: The other day, Sen. Hillary Clinton returned to her old stomping ground, Arkansas, for a political event. Yeah, she went back home. Hillary said for old times' sake, she stopped by the governor's mansion and tore the guy a new one.

Jennifer Lange: Al Gore III was arrested when police found marijuana, Vicodin, Valium and Xanax in his car. Psychologists note young Gore's drug problems started years ago when he was [shows picture of Al and Tipper Gore kissing] traumatized by an event in his youth.

Leno: And Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff said today he had a gut feeling -- a gut feeling -- there may be another terrorist attack this summer. Yeah.

Letterman: Here's good news. Osama bin Laden's son Omar just got married. Let's see how he likes being terrorized.
