"Script" to copy date and time to clipboard

I'm new to Applescripts/Automator. Basically I frequently need to add the time and date into notepad and word documents. I would like to have a keystroke that would copy the current time and date and automatically paste into whatever application I'm in, or just copy it to the clipboard. Any help would be greatly appreciate. Thanks.

This should work

set {year:y, month:m, day:d} to current date
d * 1000000
result + m * 10000
result + y
result as string
set the clipboard to result
Then add it to something like Quicksilver in triggers or another command hot key assigning application.
