On Monday's "Tonight Show," host Jay Leno had this to say about politicians' warnings that the U.S. is heading toward a "fiscal cliff":
“Well both parties in Washington now agree that our country is headed towards a ‘fiscal cliff’. That’s what they said. We’re heading straight towards a fiscal cliff. The bad news - we just elected a guy whose campaign slogan was 'Forward.'
“So let me see if I got this right. Oh, we’re in great shape. The Republicans drove us into a ditch, and the Democrats are driving us over a cliff. Fantastic. Fantastic. Couldn’t be better.
“But the good news is President Obama says we’ll run out of gas long before we get to the cliff. So don’t worry about it, don’t worry about."
