He looks like the guy who tells you the bridge is out and you'll have to spend the night. He looks like the chemical company executive who's ducking '60 Minutes.'

"I watched President Obama's speech and even took notes. I know what you're saying: 'Craig, you lie!' Bill Clinton got that all the time, but only from Hillary when he tried to explain how a tornado blew his pants off. Sometimes the Democrats booed Bush, but he just thought Congress was haunted. Obama should have said to the South Carolina Representative, 'Hey, buddy, I don't come to your state and knock your governor's wiener out of his mistress.' I don't approve of that heckling.

"They're saying that South African runner may be a hermaphrodite. I don't know what to believe. It's one of those he said, she said things."

Craig Ferguson: "'White Out' opens today. At last a movie about liquid paper. Actually it's about murder in Antarctica. Cold, dry, windy. Remind you of anyone? Antarctica is the world's most barren desert. The second-most barren desert is NBC prime time. It's 80% covered with ice, like Dick Cheney's heart. I do like their Kentucky Fried Penguin. Antarctica's the only continent with no permanent residents. Everyone just stays for a few months and moves on, like Jennifer Aniston's bedroom. Though there are no penguins in Jennifer Aniston's bedroom, as far as I know. Maybe there are. Maybe that's the problem. There are no penguins in Angelina Jolie's bedroom."

"The Soup" had a clip of a woman who castrates a hundred bulls a day saying, "No man ever cheats on me." Host Joel McHale: "In Paris Tyra thought both the Left and Right Banks were named after her." "Now every time Randy says 'Dog,' Ellen's going to adopt it and then give it to someone." They showed a clip from a newscast about a Muscle Beach competition of a hunky young guy in a bikini with a pretty woman kneeling in front of him oiling up his thighs. The guy back at the station said, "That woman has the interesting job. Ask her if she enjoys it." The woman looked up at the camera and said, "Yeah, but I'm his mother." Joel (whining): "Mom, you never do my taint." They showed a clip of a middle-aged white trash couple into kinky sex. The woman yelled, "Hey, Brian, you got the vibrator?" Joel: "It's in the dog." Russell Brand on Comedy Central: "I love women between the ages of 18 and death, and I won't be pushed on that, no matter how cleverly you tart up the corpse." His costar on a movie introduced him to her boyfriend Macaulay Culkin. "I really wanted to ask him, 'Come on, Mac, what really happened? Michael Jackson? Neverland? Sometimesland?" To the audience: "I don't want to put words in your mouth. Not when I was blessed with this." (Pointed to crotch.) "I like to tell these fans, 'Sure, I'll give you my autograph, across your uterus in sperm.'"

Irish comedian on Comedy Central: "Drunken sex with strangers, nothing like it! You'll put your face places you wouldn't ordinarily put your feet."

Still in pesos, but electronically." "Serena Williams threw a fit on the court, but she may have had a point." (Showed a clip of the line judge texting instead of watching the play.)

Then Jay accused Kevin of going to bars. "I know you were at The Sphincter and The Ramrod." First guest Jerry Seinfeld: "You know, Jay, in the '90s when we quit a show we actually quit the show." Jerry was surprised Jay couldn't get a bigger name for his first guest, and Jay admitted Oprah had turned him down. Jerry said, oh, he and Oprah were best buds, so he got her on the screen. They gossiped, and then Jerry said he was on Jay's show at the moment. Oprah: "Oh? When's he on?" Jerry on having to watch what you say with women: "I don't give a damn what I say in front of my men friends, and they care even less. With my wife ..." Jay was upset the Governor of South Carolina had gone to Argentina for a mistress. "Politicians should sleep American." Guest Kanye West on MTV's VMAs the night before had grabbed the mic from Taylor Swift in the middle of her acceptance speech to say Beyonce should have won. Jay: "When did you first know that what you did was wrong?" Kanye: "When I handed the mic back to her and she didn't go on." Jay asked him what his mother would have thought about what he did. Kanye couldn't think of anything to say.

"And then he ended with, 'Beyonce had the best video of all time!'" "In Minnesota Obama told the audience not to give in to scare tactics. A Minnesota resident replied, 'What do you call sending a black man to Minnesota?'" "Three NFL players have agreed to donate their brains to science after they die, for the study of head injuries. That's great, but the big prize is still Gary Busey." "Some of these wildfires are in marijuana plantations on public land. Marijuana fires are easy to contain, but tough to motivate."

When Matt asked her who the songs were about, she pointed to a couch where Jay, his arms covered with tattoos, was sitting. Guest comic Jim Norton was complaining about airline pilots who try to tell jokes: "The only thing worse than a funny pilot is an affectionate urologist." Jay showed clips of himself visiting and doing chores for people living close to the studio. One had him muck out a horse's stall. Jay: "Same kind of work I do at NBC."

Jon Stewart had a report on a white kid being beaten up by a black kid while onlookers cheered. "They say it's because Obama is President. But when I was in school I was beaten up by black kids. And white kids. And Jerry's kids. But today, every weekend large groups of black men beat smaller white men. It's called the NFL."

Stephen Colbert: "Mexico is trying to take over the world record for the most world records. We can't let them beat our world record for world records." So he tried for Most Insults to Mexico in 30 Minutes.

Now the airline can no longer call itself Virgin." "Also in England a 92-year-old woman who had several hits in the 1940s has a new hit. Its title is 'Where My Hos at, Bitch?'"

Jimmy Kimmel: "That guy who threw his shoes at President Bush has been released from prison. At a press conference he apologized to Taylor Swift. Kanye West is getting tweeted to death. Now, instead of shooting at each other, stars tweet, angrily. By the way, President Obama says his new health plan will cover whatever's wrong with Kanye West." Ex-governor Rob Blagojevitch had been on the show, and since he was accused of selling Obama's vacant Senate seat, Jimmy is selling Rob's vacant seat on eBay. Bidding closes September 17.

Jimmy Fallon: "Kanye West is hurt that President Obama called him a jackass, but Joe Biden told him, 'You get used to it.'"

Jay Leno: "Joe Wilson still refuses to apologize. Kanye West says, 'I'll do it!'" "Osama bin Laden is still releasing audio tapes. He just doesn't get this whole Twitter thing. He's a big fan of Whitney Houston. With Islamic views on women, you'd think he'd be a fan of Bobby Brown." "Blockbuster is closing a thousand stores. Now even movies going straight to video don't want to go to Blockbuster." Jay had a new segment: "Great White Moments in Black History: Ricki Lake starts saying, 'You go, girl,' so black people quit saying it. Thank you." "A couple was having sex in a dumpster when a passerby robbed them. Remember, folks, when you're having sex in a dumpster, always close the lid." "In honor of gay marriage in Vermont, Ben & Jerry came out with Hubby Hubby ice cream. Why not just 'Ben & Jerry'?" "Ellen DeGeneres is the new judge on 'American Idol.'

Jon Stewart: "Scoldplay" segment about Joe Wilson apology flap. Lewis Black on Serena Williams and Kanye West: "Oh no! Anger has taken over the 7th most popular sport and 38th most important awards show. Jay Leno made Kanye West cry. That wuss would never make it through 'Steel Magnolias.'"

Stephen Colbert: "Reading, Writing and Wrath-matic."

Conan O'Brien: "Kanye West called Taylor Swift to apologize after he saw her on 'The View." Rappers just love 'The View.'"

"New York Fashion Week featured Snuggies in zebra and leopard prints, so you can perfectly combine dork and whore."

Jimmy Fallon: "Jimmy Carter says he thinks Joe Wilson's rudeness to President Obama was based on racism. Wilson says, 'I can't get mad at Jimmy Carter. He's white.'

Thursday, September 17

Personal note: Thanks to "Sentinel" publisher Pat Murphy for inviting me to the Geary St. Merchants Assn. awards lunch Wed. and introducing me to our new Police Chief. The Chief didn't ask why I was named Strange, and I tried not to do anything to show him.

Jay Leno: "The Federal Reserve Chairman says the recession is over. They used to say a recession is when your neighbor loses his job, and a depression is when you lose yours. In this case a recession is when big businesses have to be bailed out by the government, and depression is when we realize we're paying for it." "Have you seen the scandal with A-Porn, I mean Acorn? They were telling clients how to run a brothel and not pay taxes. For that type of advice the pimps and hos should have gone to the experts, Congressmen." "I still can't get over that couple in Wichita who were having sex in a dumpster and got robbed at knifepoint. Who says there's nothing to do in Wichita? How filthy does your apartment have to be for you to decide it would be better to take her to a dumpster? During sex do you suppose she said, 'Talk dirty to me?' In California they'd be doing it in the recycle bin." "Jon and Kate are still in the news. Jon brought the kids chocolate roses. Oh sure. He was bringing them to his mistress and got caught.

Oddly enough, the same thing happened to Kevin and me." Jay showed a clip of him catching the ball and handing it to Kevin who tossed it. Jay promptly tossed Kevin over the rail too.

Jon Stewart: Correspondent John Oliver: "Afghanistan is the gold standard for quagmires. Their two biggest exports are drugs and vengeance." Jon asked guest Bill Clinton about the photo of him sitting stiffly beside North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il: "What I was trying to do was not smile and not scowl, just be an empty suit."

Stephen Colbert: "Taylor Swift's reps have announced she has nothing more to say about the Kanye West incident. That's because Kanye still has her microphone."

Conan O'Brien: "Jennifer Lopez visited the White House today, so Joe Biden was no longer the biggest ass there." "You can now carry a gun on Amtrak in sealed luggage.

"There's now no public urination allowed in Pittsburgh. That's what Cleveland is for." "A woman has had to put a sign on her car for the cops: 'Don't pull me over because I'm pretty.'

Doctors told her to hang in there, but don't hang in there." "A burglar got caught because he forgot to log out of his Facebook page, which he'd been checking on his victim's computer." "Pittsburgh has banned public urination and defecation. The odd thing is that it's been legal until now." Guest Dennis Quaid is playing Bill Clinton in a new movie. Jimmy: "Can you do the voice?"

When she woke up after the surgery the woman said, 'I've got a toof missing.'"

Jimmy Kimmel: Jimmy picked Donny Osmond to win "Dancing with the Stars" since he'll start out with 10,000 votes from his family alone.

Jon Stewart acceptance speech: "We're happy to be up here looking handsomer than Ricky Gervais."

Monday, September 21

David Letterman: "The 'Dead Actors Montage' was so long at the Emmys that a dozen dead actors had to be honored at a special luncheon." "I'm in a great mood because the President is on our show tonight. I underwent three hours of frisking. They even checked under my hairpiece. Security is even tighter than Joan Rivers' face. They blocked off 53rd Street. They even had to move the 'Fire Dave' rally. I told my mom President Obama was going to be on the show tonight, and she said, 'Oh, maybe I'll switch from Conan.' I haven't seen the President since he invited Sarah Palin and me to the White House for a beer. Security is tight in New York today. Have you been down to the harbor?"

"We were never able to get President Bush on the show. He was always too busy not working.

Guest Barack Obama: "First of all I think it's important to realize that I was actually black before the election."
Top Ten Reasons President Obama Agreed To Appear on the "Late Show:" 10. Heard the lady with the heart-shaped potato was going to be here. 9. Thought it would be fun to watch someone else get heckled. 8. Has something to do with that whole "Cash for Clunkers" thing. 6. In this economy, someone offers you $600, you take it. 2. Said, "Yes" without thinking... Like Bush did with Iraq. 1. Wanted to congratulate Dave on the big Emmy win.

Do you really want to have sex with 72 virgins with your father there?" Segment "Great White Moments in Black History:" A white man invented basketball, and the first teams were all white. "You know what happened." "There's a debate over whether obesity is an actual disease. Let's hope so. Then when your wife asks if her ass is fat you can say, 'Honey, I'm not a doctor.'" "Gold is over $1,000 an ounce. That means the value of rappers' mouths has doubled." "Jon Gosselin got a speeding ticket over the weekend. He was going nowhere fast." "A former Playboy Playmate said she was fired from 'Entourage' because she wouldn't have sex with the cast members, and that their hands were always all over her. That's why I won't go on 'The View' anymore." In the "Ten Questions" segment Congressman Barney Frank was asked whether he'd rather have lunch with Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck or Ann Coulter. He picked Rush Limbaugh because he'd have painkillers with him. Asked what the last thing was he'd told a President that he later regretted, he said, "Don't worry, Mr. Clinton, they don't have the guts to impeach you."

Of course she'll leave after the salad." "In New Jersey a 4-year-old brought his daddy's cocaine to kindergarten. Teachers noticed it when he started collecting all the other kids' straws and then displayed it in Blow and Tell." "A naked 91-year-old man held a thief at gunpoint until police came. It was just nuts. And it would make the worst Clint Eastwood movie ever."

Craig Ferguson: "Today, I kid you not, is Miniature Golf Day, so I drove my balls into a giant clown's mouth." "Here on CBS we have a different 'CSI' every night. It's our version of 'The Jay Leno Show.' More skin, less chin."

Chelsea Handler: "I do not think it's a coincidence that Mickey Rourke and syphilis are making comebacks at the same time."

Tuesday, September 22

"Somebody bought dinner with Sarah Palin on eBay for $63,500. That's a lot of money, but, hey, she'll shoot the main course. Yes, it's a lot of money, but you can sit down, talk to her, get to know her. It's something John McCain should have done a year ago." "Last week Dick Cheney had back surgery.

You can see the ShamWow guy on Fox." "Supposedly John Edwards had told his mistress he'd marry her after his wife died in a big wedding in New York with entertainment by the Dave Matthews Band. Shouldn't that have been Cheap Trick?" "A man was arrested for masturbating while driving, which I guess is illegal unless you have a handsfree device. And is that car-jacking?" "Twitter is now worth a billion dollars. So Twitter is rich and annoying. It's the Paris Hilton of companies." "David Hasselhoff says he wasn't drunk. He just has an ear problem. Yeah, he couldn't hear the bartender telling him he'd had enough." "In the new 'Sex & the City' movie you can tell they're getting a little old. This time the city is Boca Raton." "A study shows that short women are more likely to have orgasms, which explains why those runway models are always pouting." Guest Mariana Franklin: "On of the benefits of having white people in Harlem is that now I can get a salad." Amy Poehler answering 10@10: The last thing her husband Will Arnett made her for dinner?

Jimmy Fallon: "American Indians are being awarded $224 million. They'll put it all on black." "The Hoff says he wasn't drunk and is looking forward to serving on jury duty this week. Anyone who's looking forward to jury duty has to be drunk." "Now there's a new topical cream for erectile dysfunction. It's called lotion. A stroke of genius. It's the only medicine that requires absolutely no directions. You thought it was bad when your buddy asked you to rub suntan lotion on his back." "It's the first day of fall, or as the Mets call it, hiatus."

Craig Ferguson: "President Obama was on David Letterman. I liked Stupid Biden Tricks." "It's the first day of autumn. I use my leaf blower for hours, sometimes even on leaves. Here in L.A. the leaves go from brown to on fire."

Wednesday, September 23

David Letterman: "President Obama brought Israeli and Palestinian leaders together, and it was awkward. They stared at each other for an uncomfortably long time, and then they finally shook hands. It was like my wedding night." "Then Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave a hate-filled speech, and I went, where's that 'You lie!' guy when you need him? I'd like to say a couple of words about Ahmadinejad. Short and ugly." "Osama bin Laden was supposed to address the UN, but he dropped out at the last minute due to mercury poisoning." "I had a bad start to the day. Sun just coming up, I was thrown out of my tent in Donald Trump's yard. Muammar Qadaffi wanted to pitch his tent in New Jersey, and they said no. Then he wanted to pitch it in Joan Rivers' apartment, and that fell through. So he went to Westchester and pitched his tent in Donald Trump's backyard, and they said no, you can't stay here.

Today he arrived on a stretch camel." "The Chinese paid Sarah Palin $300,000 for the speech. I guess she could see the cash from her house."

We see a change from brown to gold to rust, and that's just the tap water. You can tell it's fall. Today Iran was making enriched cider.
