    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Thursday, February 26, 2004

    The comedians skewer the candidates 

    So many jokes, so little time. "The only thing that can sink John Kerry now is an Al Gore endorsement," David Letterman said on CBS's "Late Show" on Tuesday.

    On his "Daily Show," Jon Stewart had plenty to say about President Bush's support for a gay-marriage ban: "If a 28th amendment against same-sex marriage were to be ratified, it would only be the second amendment designed to restrict, rather than enlarge, the scope of civil liberties. Of course, the first was Prohibition in 1919. You all remember how that worked out. People immediately stopped drinking, all alcohol-related problems in this nation ceased at once, and the next decade became known as 'The Sober Twenties.' "

    Conan O'Brien weighed in on "Late Night" with some thoughts about the candidates at the back of the pack: "Consumer activist Ralph Nader announced he would run for president. When he heard about it, Dennis Kucinich was furious and said, 'He's going to steal my voter away!' "
