(laughter) and now he has no pulse because they've got him a mechanical device that keeps him alive and it's labored breathing, like if your pants are too tight. you ever been through that? (laughter) you know what i'm talking about? yeah. so now he just sits at his house

(cheers and applause) i'd kind of like to see that again. would it be possible? oh, here it comes! (applause) (laughs) hey, it's another... oh, our
prayers have been answered. guess what? there's going to be another republican debate. (laughter and applause) yeah, they're going to have, like, i think 60, maybe 70, and even the republicans know now that the debates are becoming less informational and more and more monotonous. so fox, i believe, is carrying the upcoming debate. they have announced today how they plan to liven up the upcoming republican debate and i think it's a good idea. take a look at this. >> now, our rules are similar to a previous fox debates. one minute for answers, 30 seconds for follow-ups, if the candidates run too long, we'll politely remind them it's time to wrap up with this sound. (many sounds) more hilarious sound effects after these messages.
>> that's not a bad idea. i think maybe that will work you know what's happened? maybe you've done this to friends or something to tease them a little bit, you put on the internet that they're dead. you ever do that? (laughter) >> paul: that's a good way of... yeah, very nice. >> dave: just to poke a little fun. >> paul: yeah. >> dave: well listen to this. earlier today on the internet, bon jovi somebody said, hey, guess what? bon jovi is dead. so bon jovi... first of all, let me say first of all bon jovi is not dead and secondly he's got a tremendous sense of humor. look at what he posted on the internet in response. can you see that? "heaven looks a lot like new jersey." there he is. bon jovi. that was cute. (applause) but he's not dead. as a matter of fact, he's feeling fine. now, on the other hand, kim jong-il, the vicious ugly dictator of north korea, he actually is dead and i saw this online earlier today.
look at that. it's got a... can we get in tight on the sign. can you move it. (laughter) "hell looks a lot like new jersey." well, that's... that's awful. but his son kim jong-un is taking over and today he was endorsed by the des moines "register." (applause) don't kid yourselves. people in north carolina loved kim jong-il, you know? i mean, what a guy. and we had quite a lot of fun with him while he was alive. >> paul: oh, yeah. >> dave: but the people actually... i mean, if you see any of the coverage, they are bereft. and he was so... that's why they had to put anymore a bulletproof coffin. he was so beloved they just... (applause) now, here's what we know about kim jong-il as a guy.
we knew about him as a world leader but all i cared about is what kind of a guy is he? if he were here and we looked him right in the eye, what would we learn? here's what we know about the guy for sure. like many of us, loved "rambo" movies, kim jong-il. also water parks. who here doesn't love... i mean, what a great place to get hepatitis. (laughter) loved the water parks. made his staff call him "dear leader." and spent the day drinking cognac. it's like i have a twin, ladies and gentlemen. it's like i have a twin. (laughs) whoo. the family is saying now-- and it happens from time to time at the funeral in lieu of flowers for kim jong-il they encourage you to send the enriched
uranium. that's just a little... (applause) let's see, what time is it? as a matter of fact, just about now in hell saddam hussein is saying to kim jong-il "yeah, but it's a dry heat." (applause) so that's... we put together a little something like that monkey on the dog one. oh, there it is! hey, rover, how long do you think you'll be doing this? until i earn enough money to get this monkey off my back. (laughs) but any way, for the holidays we
put together a special segment for you folks it's called bornny frank... oh, for the love of god. barney frank, the congressman from massachusetts retiring. the name of the segment is "barney frank: oh, for the love of god." >> so, yes, we are aware of the importance of community banks. i would just repeat what i said at first because i have found surprisingly that not everybody listens to everything i say the first time i say it is. (applause) >> dave: (laughs) barney frank look. everybody, paul right there. you know. harry connick, jr., is on the program, ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much. we'll be right back, everybody. vo: introducing new french fries from burger king.
