April 13, 2008— -- Here's a roundup of the late night comics.

Jay Leno: Hillary Clinton's senior campaign adviser, a guy named Mark Penn, has left the campaign. Apparently he was coming under some heavy sniper fire.

Conan O'Brien: On Saturday, Barack Obama held several campaign rallies in Montana. That's right. Officials say that Barack's visit attracted large crowds and doubled the black population of Montana.

Bill Maher: All three candidates went on 'American Idol,' did you see this? Now, do they really think the same people who are interested in a superficial, poorly run popularity contest are also interested in 'American Idol'?

O'Brien: Yesterday, true story, Hillary Clinton's top adviser abruptly left her campaign. Yeah, yeah. When he heard about it, Bill Clinton said, 'Wait, we can leave?'

Leno: John McCain is now crisscrossing the United States campaigning, or as they're calling it, 'Antique Road Show.'

Stephen Colbert: In a rare moment of solidarity, the McCain and Obama teams have responded to Clinton's attack with a joint commercial.

Advertisement: It is 3:00 in the afternoon. Markets are open... and Congress is at work. In the White House, a phone is ringing, but Hillary Clinton is asleep because she was up at 3:00 in the morning. Barack Obama and John McCain, well rested, normal office hours.
