Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were on vacation, but Conan O'Brien in particular picked up the slack, not only having a great week on his own show, but also popping up in New York on Letterman to lay into Jay Leno in a way he hasn't done since everything went down more than two years ago.

I never thought I would date a Republican. Not because I really contemplated it, but because as long as I didn't drive to Orange County, my chances of actually running into one felt slim to none.
It was the week of the Etch A Sketch, but apparently the Internet made comedy out of that so fast that there was nothing left for the late night shows...

In the wake of the Sandra Fluke vs. Rush Limbaugh media frenzy, we've begun to ask some very interesting questions. The queries popping up over the Fluke-Limbaugh controversy has brought a question to my mind: What if Sandra Fluke were a woman of color?
