Late Night Political Humor

“President Obama is slated to appear on one of Oprah’s last shows. He’s hoping it’s the one on which she gives away 14 trillion dollars.” – Conan O’Brien

“Barack and Michelle Obama will appear on Oprah’s show soon. Not to be outdone, Donald Trump’s hair will be making an appearance on Animal Planet.” – Jay Leno

“Critics say it’s illegal for Donald Trump to run for president while hosting a TV show. It’s also illegal to run for president if your hair wasn’t born in this country.” – Conan O’Brien

“Donald Trump says he has never been more serious about running for president and that this is not a publicity stunt — but make sure to watch the announcement on the season finale of ‘Celebrity Apprentice.'” – Jimmy Kimmel

“Another air traffic controller fell asleep on the job, but he had a good excuse. He was watching President Obama’s deficit speech.” – Jay Leno

“A high-ranking official at the FAA had to resign because air traffic controllers are falling asleep. I think FAA stands for ‘fell asleep again.'” – Craig Ferguson

“The air traffic controllers are sleeping, the TSA is groping you, and the pilots are drunk. Who would have thought the most reliable workers at the airport would be the baggage handlers?” – Jay Leno

    Air traffic controllers. Hmmmm. After the first report out of Reagan, I asked myself, “I wonder what his shift rotation was and how much rest he had between shifts?” Having worked plenty of shift work myself, I know how difficult it is to get proper rest, especially when working different time periods on sequential days. A report I heard on NPR on Monday implied that ATCs may be working with less than 8 hours off between shifts. If most people were to do that for a couple weeks, they’d discover just how hard it is to stay awake during a quiet midnight to 8 shift.

    There are several articles out there about why there have been so many incidents of sleeping on the job and what can be done about it.
