Late Show Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Show with David Letterman:

Nice day outside. Beautiful day all up and down the East Coast. It was so nice down in Washington that President Obama was out on the White House lawn making a kite out of his birth certificate.

So, we found the President’s birth certificate. It’s on to Bin Laden.

How about that Lindsey Lohan? She’s going to the slammer. Gonna be in there for 120 days. But don’t worry, they already got the Taliban guys digging her a tunnel.

How about that Donald Trump? He’s in New Hampshire testing the waters to see if the country is ready for a loud-mouth oaf.

According to a recent poll 50% of Americans think that Donald Trump would make a terrible president. The other 50% think he would make an awful president.

The desk segment included Top Ten Surprises on Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate:

Kate Hudson was the first couch guest. She stars in the new film Something Borrowed. The interview was pretty good. She is seriously pregnant, so I found it amazing that not only did she fly out, get dressed up and agree to be on the show, but she still had energy left to laugh and have fun with Dave. If it had been me I would have just stayed home wondering how the hell I got pregnant. Anyhoo, here’s a clip:

Rich Eisen was the second couch guest. He is the lead host of the NFL Network. Rich and Letterman discussed the NFL draft and the controversy between the NFL players and owners. Despite the fact that I don’t care too much about either, I still enjoyed the interview. I think it’s for the same reason that I enjoyed the Kate Hudson interview. Rich was personable, funny and had good banter with Letterman. Here’s a clip:

Emmylou Harris was the musical guest. She was fine.

A good all-around show. I give it:
