Leno Mocks PA Rep.'s Continental Confusion

 

Jay Leno mocked Rep. Tom Marino (R.,Pa.), a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, who questioned what would follow U.S. intervention in Libya. "Will we go into Africa next?" Oops.

"You can see why he's not on the Intelligence Committee," Leno said.

Marino has been getting snickered at around the web, including here on Big Tent, since he made the remark to a Scranton, Pa. newspaper. His spokeswoman, Renita Fennick, said that he was referring to a possible escalation of ground troops. "A few days of missile strikes does not put us on a continent," she said.
