Late Night Political Humor

“Last month Mitt Romney raised $76 million. He found it in an old sport-coat pocket.” – David Letterman

“You know what he did with that money? He took Warren Buffett to lunch.” – David Letterman

“Rand Paul… do you know who Rand Paul is? He is the son of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, who has not dropped out of the race yet… Well; Rand Paul has now endorsed Mitt Romney.

“Ron Paul’s son is a senator from Kentucky, and he’s now endorsing Mitt Romney. I know how that feels. My son watches Jay.” – David Letterman
