Jay Leno's political jokes Here is one: "It's the Cardinals and the Red Sox. They met in the World Series back in 1967. To tell you how times have changed, back then we had a bad economy, an unpopular war and a president from Texas." Here is another: "It's getting uglier and uglier out there - Teresa Heinz Kerry said she doesn't know if Laura Bush has ever held a real job. Laura Bush fired back. She said she was busy raising three kids - Barbara, Jenna and George W. That is a full-time job."
