JAY LENO’S MONOLOGUE MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012
YOU MIGHT NOTICE…DO I LOOK A LITTLE THINNER? I’M ON THAT NEW EXXON-MOBIL DIET. YOU SPEND SO MUCH MONEY ON GAS, YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO EAT.
SIX BUCKS A GALLON! GAS PRICES IN CALIFORNIA NOW THE HIGHEST IN THE NATION; EVEN HIGHER THAN HAWAII. IN FACT, I HAVE THAT APP ON MY IPHONE CALLED “GAS TRACKER.” IT’S FINDS THE BEST PRICE FOR GAS IN YOUR AREA. I PRESSED IT AND IT SAID, "STAY HOME! YOU’RE SCREWED."
THE OBAMAS CELEBRATED THEIR 20TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY SATURDAY NIGHT IN WASHINGTON AT A RESTAURANT CALLED "BOURBON STEAK." I UNDERSTAND MICHELLE HAD STEAK TO CELEBRATE THE OCCASION; THE PRESIDENT HAD BOURBON TO HELP FORGET THE DEBATE.
NOW IT’S GETTING CATTY; THE DEMOCRATS ARE ACCUSING MITT ROMNEY OF CHEATING DURING THE DEBATE. THEY SAID HE CHEATED. I DON'T KNOW WHO HE CHEATED OFF OF, BUT I THINK WE CAN RULE OUT PRESIDENT OBAMA…HE DIDN’T HAVE ANY ANSWERS WORTH STEALING, DID HE? I DON’T THINK SO.
WHILE THE AVERAGE AMERICAN'S NET WORTH HAS GONE DOWN IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS, THE NET WORTH OF THE AVERAGE MEMBER OF CONGRESS HAS ACTUALLY GONE UP. NO WONDER CONGRESS ISN'T MOTIVATED TO DO ANYTHING; THEY'RE THE ONLY ONES BETTER OFF NOW THAN THEY WERE FOUR YEARS AGO.
GOOD NEWS FOR THE WHITE HOUSE; UNEMPLOYMENT HAS NOW DROPPED UNDER 8%. ALTHOUGH THOSE NUMBERS COULD GO UP AGAIN WHEN MITT ROMNEY FIRES EVERYBODY AT PBS.
ACTUALLY, UNEMPLOYMENT IS 7.8%, THE LOWEST IT’S BEEN SINCE OBAMA TOOK OFFICE. THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN SAID THEY CAN'T WAIT TO TAKE THESE STATISTICS AND NOT USE THEM IN THE NEXT DEBATE.
THE POLICE CHIEF OF DETROIT WAS SUSPENDED AFTER A FEMALE POLICE OFFICE SAID SHE HAD SEX WITH HIM IN EXCHANGE FOR A PROMOTION. OF COURSE, PEOPLE ARE STUNNED, DETROIT HAS A POLICE DEPARTMENT?
THE NUMBER ONE MOVIE IN THE COUNTRY IS “TAKEN 2.” FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS IT MADE. IN THIS SEQUEL, LIAM NELSON'S EX-WIFE IS TAKEN HOSTAGE. DIVORCED GUYS ARE CALLING IT, “THE FEEL GOOD FILM OF THE YEAR.”
