Dec. 21, 2008 -- Here's a roundup of the late-night comics.
Jay Leno: There are some great deals out there. There are still bargains. You know, I went shopping over the weekend. I got an Illinois senate seat, $149.
David Letterman: I hope things go better for Santa Claus this Christmas. Last year, remember what happened last year? He was shot down over Alaska by Sarah Palin. Do you remember that?
Leno: Here he is leaving his house. Take a look. OK, he's on his way to the press conference. It's very subtle. Watch what happens here. [VO of Blago leaving house. Close-up shot of someone dropping a dufflebag full on money on the ground and picking it back up. VO of Blago getting into car] You see, now -- [laughter and applause].
Conan O'Brien: President Bush is hosting a lunch next month with President-elect Obama and all the former presidents. Isn't that cool? Yeah. Bush said I invited all 43 guys, but only four responded.
Letterman: Do you hear about this guy in -- George Bush is over there in Baghdad saying good-bye to the troops -- and he heaves a couple shoes at the guy. And we thought, hopefully that's just a one of a kind of an episode. More bad news coming out of the Middle East. Apparently now, Iran, Iran, yeah is developing a long-range loafer. Honest to god!
The Late Late Show
Craig Ferguson: President-elect Obama made a huge announcement this week. He's going to travel to his inauguration by train. I know! This is a big surprise to a lot of people because everybody thought Obama was going to get to the inauguration by walking on water.
