Late Night Political Humor

“When Michele Bachmann heard they were bilingual, she said it’s OK, as long as they don’t get married.” – Jay Leno

“New Jersey Governor Chris Christie lost his laptop. In his lap.” – David Letterman

“A 6th grade student from Springfield, New Jersey, who asked Gov. Chris Christie for campaign advice, wound up losing his election for student council. Worse still, he asked President Obama for economic advice and he now owes his school $14 trillion.” – Jay Leno

“First Lady Michelle Obama was spotted shopping at Target yesterday. Yeah, she told the Secret Service to keep their eyes peeled – not for threats, just for a person that actually works at Target.” – Jimmy Fallon

    I think he just has an easier time making fun of people than policy. Maybe he got lazy when Bush was in office because he was an easy target. Obama’s just not as colorful of a person, so Leno has turned more towards jokes based on policy, which always seem to fall a little flat coming from him.
