Tonight, actor Paul Rudd promotes his new movie Knocked Up.

Jon begins the show tonight with the Scooter Libby jail sentence. Libby was sentenced to 30 months in jail and a $250,000 fine. Letters of praise and denouncement were sent to the judge to help him determine a sentence. Jon takes a look at some of the letters sent in praise of Libby from the likes of such distinguished individuals as Henry Kissinger & Donald Rumsfeld.

Jon reports on Congressman William Jefferson who was charged on numerous counts of corruption in a segment called "Father of the Bribe". Jon not only highlights the numerous charges against Jefferson, but the fact that he kept $90,000 in his freezer.

Jon then shows us a nice montage of Bush using the same language he denounced opponents of the immigration reform bill as using, namely, empty political rhetoric such as the word amnesty to induce fear in a segment called "Hasta la Visa".

And finally, Rob Riggle visits Disneyland to report on the magic kingdom's dissatisfaction with the city of Anaheim's decision to build low income affordable housing near the park in a segment called "Callous in Wonderland".
