Jay Leno: Gitmo and Small Business Taxes

Jay Leno: President Obama held a press conference earlier today, and he said he still wants to close the Guantanamo Bay prison facility, but he doesn't know how to do it. He should do what he always does: declare it a small business and tax it out of existence.It will be gone in a minute.

Regardless of politics, that's pretty funny.

Not to slight Mr Leno ... but perhaps a more efficient and quicker solution would be o declare it a "Green Energy Company" and send it a couple of billion. It will declare itself closed by the end of Summer.

Will Leno start "Late Night on Fox News"? Letterman, kimmel et al are but shills for MSM political correctness.

Obama could just rename it out of existence.

Rename it to "Overseas Contingency Operations" .. no more "War On Terror".

May I suggest ... rename Gitmo to "Chez Guevara" ... It sounds Cuban, though Che was Argentinian, and Che was a ruthless killer, just like most of the inmates.

I gotta say, it's times like this that Leno sticks out like a sore thumb. He's willing to make fun of 'both sides', so to speak. He's never nasty about it, and anyone who has a reasonable sense of humor appreciates it.

It's way out of place on a network like NBC for someone to not be overtly trying to make a point for the left. It's just what they do on TV, Newspapers, and other major media. Any exception is considered dumb and/or evil pretty quickly, so I wonder if this is why they keep firing Leno despite his success level.
