Barack vs. Bruce

President Obama is so polished and cautious in his speaking that the media are always on the alert for any gaffes, so his Special Olympics crack on last night's "Tonight Show" has eclipsed anything he said about AIG or his economic plans. The talkers on the 24-hour cable networks were no doubt rubbing their hands with glee when he made his politically incorrect comment. The president called Tim Shriver, chairman of the Special Olympics, to apologize -- before the show even hit the airwaves.

We couldn't help but be charmed by Jon Stewart's obvious love and respect for his idol, Bruce Springsteen. Talk Show News was lucky enough to meet The Boss a few years back so we weren't surprised to see that Bruce is only an inch or two taller than the 5'7" Stewart; anyone who's seen him live could be forgiven for thinking that he must be about eight feet tall.
