From 2 of my favorite cartoonists in Denmark, giving new meaning to the phrase "bombs away"
From Denny: Here's some of the latest past few days from those crazy late night show guys, lampooning politics and politicians - and a couple of cartoon left-overs from the weekend postings of editorial cartoons...
"Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin will be making an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show, ladies and gentlemen. It's going to be good. It's going to be great because on the one hand you have a powerful, well respected icon, American woman who could be president. And on the other hand you have Sarah." – David Letterman
"And then John McCain will make an appearance live via satellite. That is, if he can find somebody to turn on the damn thing." – David Letterman
"Do people still bob for apples? Anybody bob for apples for God's sakes? Bobbing for apples or as Dick Cheney calls it, apple boarding." –David Letterman
"I bet you you go to Dick Cheney's house, trick-or-treating he is one of those guys that tells you you are going to have to spend the night because the bridge is out." –David Letterman
"Did you hear this? President Obama has approved a new plan to pay members of the Taliban to switch sides and support the United States. Yeah, in a related story, 10 million unemployed Americans just joined the Taliban." – Conan O'Brien
"Now everybody's fine, but CNN's Lou Dobbs recently had to call the police because someone fired shots at his home. Yeah. Dobbs said he didn't see or hear the shooter, but described him as Hispanic." – Conan O'Brien
Dick Cheney on Halloween, showing his true colors, dressed as himself.
"This is interesting. One of the top selling costumes this Halloween is a vampire version of President Obama called 'Barackula.' Also very popular is the vampire version of former Vice President Dick Cheney, called 'Dick Cheney.'" – Conan O'Brien
"Former President George W. Bush is busy. That's right. He's going to India tomorrow to give a speech. Yep. The speech will be entitled, 'Hey, which of you snake charmers is going to fix my computer?'" – Conan O'Brien
"After months of the debate, finally a health care reform bill now exists. It's big. The new bill is called the Affordable Health Care for America Act. And the bill's official title is actually HR 3692. 3692, of course, stands for the year they expect the bill to pass." – Jimmy Fallon
"By gosh, the World Series starts tonight. You know who is going to be at the game tonight, at Yankee Stadium? Michelle Obama and Jill Biden. Wife of the President, wife of the Vice President. And they will be sitting right next to the two sleeping Northwest pilots." – David Letterman
But get this, the bill is 1,990 pages long. To put that into words you guys can understand, that's like 5,622,000 Tweets." – Jimmy Fallon
"The White House welcomed students to the South Lawn for the fall harvest of the White House garden. They're saying a hoe hasn't gotten that much action at the White House since the Clinton administration." – Jimmy Fallon
"You know what is worse than being sick and not having health insurance? Having to sit through the Lieberman filibuster that kept it from you." – Jon Stewart
Here's a funny clip:

I usually support my fellow women in politics, regardless of political party, rarely ever comment on their mistakes but there is just something so very wrong about Palin: like this weird mindlessness along with a complete lack of reading comprehension that makes her a poster child symbol of how stupid women are perceived culturally in general. So... and for one of the most brilliant statements ever made by a politician who can't add, substract or understand the interviewer's question in the first place:
"A new poll from CNN found that more than 70% of Americans said that Sarah Palin is not qualified to be president in 2012. When she heard that, she was like, 'Yeah, but that still leaves 50%.'" – Jimmy Fallon
