Condi candy -- Leno lines from last week:

* I guess you all know the big story – today Condoleezza Rice testified this morning before the 9-11 commission. Or as they’re calling it in Washington – "The Passion of the Rice”.

* I read something interesting about Condoleezza Rice today. They said she was actually Methodist but became a Presbyterian. You know what that means, she’s a converted rice!

* Former President Bill Clinton didn’t watch. To this day, he still gets extremely nervous whenever a woman testifies under oath.


* Well here’s the latest forecast for Iraq, Sunni today, but tomorrow it will turn to Shiite. That’s pretty much the story, it doesn’t look good.
