Leno: 'The Economy Is So Bad MSNBC Had To Lay Off 300 Obama Spokesmen' By Noel Sheppard Created 11/16/2012 - 9:40am
NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno took a swipe at his own sister network and the President Thursday.
During his opening monologue, Leno said, "The economy is so bad MSNBC had to lay off 300 Obama spokesmen" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JAY LENO: I tell you, Rickey, the economy is not good. It's not good at all.
RICKEY MINOR: How bad is it, Jay?
LENO: The stock market is going down faster than a general's biographer. It is terrible out there. Terrible out there. Terrible. [Applause]
The economy is so bad on the way to work I saw Phil Jackson holding a sign, Will coach for food. That's how bad. [Applause]
The economy is so bad James Bond switches from Heineken to Colt 45. That's how bad it's gotten. [Applause]
The economy is so bad Paula Broadwell is now being forced to sleep with only three star generals. Ugh! [Applause]
The economy is so bad MSNBC had to lay off 300 Obama spokesmen. That's how bad it's gotten.
The economy is so bad President Obama sent Susan Rice out to defend it. That's how bad the economy is.
The folks at Comcast, General Electric, and NBC must be sooooo proud of a division that is such a joke that one of their most-watched on air personalities makes fun of it on national television.
Let's hear it for leaning forward!
"The economy is so bad James Bond switches from Heineken to Colt 45. "
Now THAT'S scary!
Heard an interesting comment by one of the financial people on cable. When the economy was bad before, stores like Macy’s and Kohl’s would say their customers are trending down to Wal Mart. But now, the economy is so bad that Wal Mart said that their customers are trending down to DOLLAR STORE! I kid you NOT!
Is Leno having a “Dennis Miller” conversion?
I dunno...Colt 45 has a mighty powerful kick!............
“dollar stores” are the fastest growing retail category. Some good charts and trends here:

using comedy as a deflection
If someone were to offer me one of these products now I would say: "What are you, stupid?" (I would still drink the Gallo Pink Chablis though.)
I like Leno’s joke about heading for a fiscal cliff and then we elect a person with the slogan,” FORWARD ! “
Very true! They are fast growing and it doesn’t look like they will falter any time soon. America has become a dollar economy because of OBAMA and the JACKASSES who voted for him.
“The economy is so bad MSNBC had to lay off 300 Obama spokesmen. That’s how bad it’s gotten.” That joke had Chrissie tingling.
what’s a leno? (not quite sarcasm)
“shaken. not stirred........
I think I have never seen his show for more than a few minutes. My viewing of him is limited to FOX clips.
This Jay Leno, the very same owner of the equivalent of an LA freeway traffic jam of expensive motor vehicles, is a comic who has figured out how to make a magnificent living berating other people, especially high profile wealthy ones like himself. What a great gig this guy has copied from the masters like Johnny Carson, Ernie Kovacs and Steve Allen.
The economy is so bad, women can’t afford batteries, the upside is husbands don’t hear...”I’ve got a headache” anymore.
