On Friday, a headline from Gawker read "Call Michelle! Barack Obama Wasn't Wearing a Ring Today." And there was the Tweet from The Hill's Sam Youngman stated "Big to-do over potus not wearing his wedding ring today."
But Obama as King James wasn't the only case of mistaken identity mentioned on The Tonight Show last night.
Leno weighed into election 2010 coverage, by noting that California businessman and Republican congressional candidate John Dennis released a somewhat controversial ad on Sunday depicting Nancy Pelosi as the Wicked Witch of the West from "The Wizard of Oz."
"Well, Pelosi, very angry ... the Wicked Witch, even angrier!" Leno quipped.
How's Dennis doing? Hard to tell. The last poll in March had just 22 percent of likely voters saying they'd vote for him, versus 60 percent for Pelosi.
But this ad got so much attention, you can expect to see Dennis cast Pelosi in several other roles.
