The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson: Neil Patrick Harris, Spencer Day

Craig's day after labor day show takes focus on the mentally unstable among us. The paranoid who think the president will "indoctrinate" their child with one speech, or the ones who insists (without proof) that Obama wasn't born here. Such an easy target shouldn't make for such fun, but it does. Later, star of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, is on. Also, musician SPENCER DAY, performs a song from his album, Vagabond.

Episode Quotes
Craig: It's a great day for the beautiful city of San Francisco. Workers there today repaired the Bay bridge just an hour before the rush hour this morning. They've been working around the clock, they fixed a huge crack that was discovered by a construction worker. Actually it was San Francisco so it was discovered by a construction worker, an Indian, a Cop and a Biker.

Craig: Do you know that the price of gold shot way up today? Right now my nipple piercings are worth more than a thousand dollars each.

Craig: (Talking about the kids going back to school) Finally, I can watch some cartoons by myself.

Craig: Anyway, as predicted a lot of people are throughing a hissy fit about Obama's speech. One Republican said that Obama is, pushing, pushing, his Socialist agenda. And I suppose telling kids not to do drugs is promoting healthcare reform.

Craig: Now whether or not you voted for Barack Obama, you have to admit that his life is a shining example of the power of education. Now let's have a look at his life: He was born in Kenya and (laughter), studied 7 days a week learning how to forge Hawaiian birth certificate's (laughter), he was excepted at the best high school in Russia...the Russian capital of New York City. He did his post graduate work at the bring down America academy, otherwise known as Harvard law school. I'm not kidding about that last part.

Craig: (talking the invitation to speak at his old high school) What am I gonna tell the kids? Here's what you do, you be a black out drunk for 15 years, snort every powder you see and get divorced twice and all your dreams will come true.
