Late Night Political Humor

Thank you Rick Perry for becoming the shiny bauble that distracted the late night comedy writers away from Herman Cain! – Iron Filing

“I’m worried about Rick Perry. For one, I’m worried that maybe he’s too conservative. Two, I worry a little bit about his debating skills. And three, I — Oh, what was three?” – David Letterman

“When you have a little trouble recalling, they call that a senior moment. More like Bush, junior moment.” – David Letterman

“Tomorrow is 11-11-11! Or as Rick Perry calls it: ’11-11-Wait don’t tell me, I will get this. I know there is a third one.'” – Conan O’Brien

“I think there’s one more thing Perry can forget, too: Being president.” – Jay Leno

After 30 seconds of stuttering, Rick Perry said, ‘Oops.’ Incidentally, saying ‘Oops’ after 30 seconds is why Justin Bieber has to take a paternity test. ‘Oops’ is the same thing being said by everyone who donated to Rick Perry.” – Jimmy Fallon

“That was more than a brain fart. That was brain explosive diarrhea.” – Daily Show correspondent John Oliver

“Look, I know these Rick Perry jokes are a little mean, but tomorrow, he won’t even remember them.” – Jimmy Fallon

Big news from last night’s Republican debate, you guys. It turns out George Bush was actually the smart Texas governor.” – Jimmy Fallon

“It’s not a good week for Republican memories. Rick Perry forgot the name of the agency he wanted to cut. Herman Cain forgot there was a harassment settlement. And Ron Paul forgot he has no chance of winning.” – Craig Ferguson

“Most analysts agree the big debate winner last night was Mitt Romney, who stuck closely to his strategy of not being any of the other candidates.” – Jimmy Kimmel

“Michele Bachmann says she won’t rest until Obamacare is repealed. Or until she kidnaps all 101 Dalmatians.” – Jimmy Kimmel

“You know what you call a Democrat who makes as many verbal gaffes as Rick Perry? Vice president.” – Jay Leno

I’m not sure that the one about Romney’s “strategy of not being any of the other candidates” is actually a joke. Ironically, all the other candidates are counting on not being Mitt Romney as a successful strategy. – Iron Filing
