I hope the Press Corpse confronts Jay Bob about his bald faced lie regarding WH involvement in scrubbing the Benghazi talking points.

Someone suggested a laugh track yesterday. Something along the lines of Science Mystery Theatre would be cool.

These White House scandals are not going away any time soon. I’ll tell you how bad it’s looking for President Obama: People in Kenya are now saying he’s 100 percent American. ~ Jay Leno

Yesterday, the Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, charged that there’s a culture of intimidation throughout the Obama administration. Really, anyone intimidated by Barack Obama? He can’t even keep Joe Biden in line. ~ Jay Leno

So they spent the last five years claiming President Obama was weak and ineffective. Suddenly he’s Tony Soprano. ~ Jay Leno

President Obama is in a lot of hot water lately. Despite the scandals, 53 percent of Americans say they approve of the job he’s doing. The other 47 percent are being audited. ~ Conan

A new report just came out. It says someone close to the president knew about the IRS scandal and kept his mouth shut. In other words, we can rule out Joe Biden. ~ Conan

President Obama’s had a rough couple of weeks with the big Benghazi scandal, the IRS scandal, and the phone tapping scandal. And now he has to replace all four “American Idol” judges. ~ David Letterman

During a fundraiser yesterday, President Obama said there is a shortage of common sense right now in Washington. At which point the people who paid $5,000 a plate for their dinner applauded in agreement.~ Jimmy Fallon

This week will mark the 37th time House Republicans have tried to repeal Obamacare. If Republicans really wanted to do away with Obamacare they should just endorse it as a conservative non-profit and let the IRS take it down. ~ Jay Leno

President Obama announced the appointment of a new acting commissioner of the IRS — the other guy was fired. See, they’re called “acting commissioner” because you have to act like the scandal doesn’t involve the White House. ~ Jay Leno

A lot of critics are now comparing President Obama to President Nixon. The good news for Obama? At least he’s no longer being compared to President Carter. ~ Jay Leno

It has not been a good week for President Obama. You’ve got Benghazi, the IRS scandal, this AP records scandal, and, worst of all, his Chicago Bulls got eliminated by the Miami Heat. Do you know what that means? LeBron James is going to get audited by the IRS. ~ Jay Leno

Today the White House released 99 pages of emails on trouble in Benghazi — and one shirtless tweet from Anthony Weiner. ~ David Letterman

I was outside today for a little bit. I was sweating like President Obama at a press conference. ~ David Letterman

That last joke has been seized by the Department of Justice. ~ David Letterman

The IRS has a new boss after it came out they unfairly targeted tea party groups. The president says the new IRS chief is not only good with numbers, but he has more integrity than the last guy. It’s Bernie Madoff.~ Craig Ferguson

When he presses his lips together tightly, that means he doesn’t want to speak, he wants out of there.

Gowdy burned Schulman (previous IRS honcho) to the ground.

So, is there a Benghazi question about the perps who are walking free?

The White House can only provide new information as quickly as their tissue of lies is blown away by the winds of truth.

So....the purpose of THIS press briefing is what, exactly?

Isn’t this just rehashing what they’ve already told us yesterday, the day before yesterday, the day before that day....and so on?

Nothing new here.....same lies and lack of information. Same dog and pony show.
