Jay Leno on Congress and its vacation policy

August 5, 2008 | 12:44 am

Jay Leno of NBC's tonight Show comments on Congress' long vacation plan

"What a crowd! You sound like Congress going on its five-week vacation.

"Congress went on a five-week vacation, starting today. Boy, do they deserve it!

"They got so much done this year, solved the energy crisis, health care, Social Security, immigration.... Take a break, fellas.

"Have you noticed Congress doesn't even call it a 'vacation.' They call it a 'recess.'

"How come the only ones who get recess are Congress, kindergartners and juries? The three groups you can't trust to make an adult decision."
