Play of the Day: Notable Political Weight Loss

Alaska’s Cleveland Volcano erupted this week, spewing ash near the Aleutian Islands and generally causing havoc for air traffic controllers. Craig Ferguson found the presidential humor in the eruption, making fun of Grover Cleveland's name and invoking Bill Clinton. He also hinted at future war on the United States’ friendly Canadian neighbors to the north.

A recent survey found Judith Sheindlin, star of the syndicated Judge Judy, to be more trustworthy than all nine Supreme Court justices, prompting ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel to mull the real meaning of the word “supreme.” Conan O’Brien was more critical of Sheindlin, observing the usual combatants on her show. 

 

New Jersey governor Chris Christie has always been a popular figure on late-night TV, but this week, he became a superstar because of his recent surgery. Wednesday evening, Conan O’Brien wondered how much time he’s saving by eating and David Letterman’s producers put together a comparison graphic.

Fast forward to 3:20 to see how Christie’s weight loss compares to other famous politicians.
