Play of the Day: The Vatican, Cyprus and Washington

Jay Leno was up in arms Tuesday about all things economic. Touching on the Cypriot bailout, Serbian woman Bojana Danilovic’s rare brain condition and various government programs he has deemed wasteful, The Tonight Show host was adamant that the federal government is doing a bad joke managing its finances. Barack Obama was the butt of most of the jokes, but he even got in a joke about Agriculture Department finance programs.

Late Night’s Jimmy Fallon mentioned Rand Paul’s politcal turn on immigration reform, but had his best jokes for the strange-but-true photo of Joe Biden attending Pope Francis’ first official mass. On CBS, David Letterman brought Biden into the Obama/Satan controversy from Monday and joked about the Republican leadership’s recent introspection.

Fast forward to 3:35 to see Leno laud the Senate barber shop’s fiscal fortunes.
