Just when we thought it was going to get all grim and serious for the last 18 days of the election, the funnies come marching in! After LOL performances by both candidates at the Al Smith dinner — and despite jokes falling 7-1 against Republicans, which I'm sure were helped in part by Letterman's recent . . . . disgruntlement with McCain — the Mac showed up and told Dave last night the line more men might take advantage of: "I screwed up."
After taking a helicopter to the show to make darn sure he didn't miss it this time, Dave asked, "can you stay?" Laughs, but not all fun and games — he also hit McCain with serious questions about his association with Watergate player G. Gordon Liddy.
It was a tough and funny night — but McCain and Dave weren't the only ones yukking it up. SNL was on last night, and Joe Biden stopped by Leno — to see the clips,
Remember the "he's an Arab," woman from that McCain rally? SNL does, too. Here's her appearance on last night's update.
The Thursday night update also tackled the last debate with all the Joe the Plumber goodness you can handle.
And where was Joe Biden? Hanging out with Jay Leno and giving poor JTP (that's Joe the Plumber, I feel like we know him that well) a hard time.
Which clip made you chuckle?
