David Letterman, on the ugly campaign: "You look at some
of these races around the country, and you think it's just
a damn shame somebody has to win.
Jay Leno, on Michael Huffington saying that California's
United States Senators are the "Thelma and Louise" of
American politics: "That has to be tough for them, being
attacked by the Forrest Gump of American politics.
Leno, on how desperate the U.S. candidates are in
Virginia: "Oliver North told the truth, and Chuck Robb had
sex with his own wife."
Comedy writer Bob Mills, on Arianna Huffington at the
polls: She said she not only voted for Mike, she also had
an `out-of-voting-booth experience.'"
"Ted Kennedy compares himself to George Foreman: It makes
sense. They're both old, they're both overweight and
they're always hitting on someone." -- Conan O'Brien
"Republicans haven't been this gleeful since the invention
of the tax loophole." -- Albert Perrotta
"Charles Robb said he would celebrate his reelection by
taking his little lady dancing. It wasn't known how Mrs.
Robb would celebrate. -- Michael O'Conner
"I'm wondering where Mike Huffington is watching election
returns -- from his hotel suite in Houston? Or Dallas?"
-- (Mike Nolan/KFI)
"Arianna's already demanding a recount: She can't believe
Mike spent $28 million." -- Michael O'Conner
"One reason Huffington lost is that many of his supporters
were John-Roger followers and therefore not registered to
vote in this lifetime." -- Tony Peyser
"Huffington may have lost the election, but with all this
talk about an INS conspiracy, he did get a job with Oliver
Stone." -- Larry Swerdlow
"Ollie lost his Senate bid because his campaign didn't
have a colonel of truth to it." -- Eric Cocks
"Ironically, if Ollie had won, he would have been assigned
the same seat he testified in." -- Conan O'Brien
"Analysts say Sonny Bono's election to Congress was not so
much an affirmation of his platform as it was a
repudiation of Cher's last two albums." -- Tony Peyser
