Late Night Political Humor

“Mitt Romney on Friday released his 2011 tax returns, which showed he paid 14 percent rate, so just a little less than what restaurants add on for parties of six or more.” – Seth Meyers

“The 14 percent tax rate Romney paid is less than the 20 percent paid by the average American. How does he pay such a low rate? He claims 47 percent of Americans as dependents.” – Seth Meyers

“In an interview Thursday, Ann Romney responded to criticism of her husband’s presidential campaign, saying, ‘Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring.’ In response, the interviewer entered the race, and is leading Mitt Romney by five points.” – Seth Meyers

“Obama came out and said, ‘Hey, I can’t change Washington from the inside.’ I’m not saying what you said isn’t true. I’m saying, why are you saying anything during this Romney tailspin? … Don’t make this hard on yourself – you’re like the criminal that gets away with murder and then starts sending the cops puzzles to figure it out. Also, on a pure entertainment level, don’t do anything to take the focus off the Romney follies – their campaign is getting crazier than the last season of ‘Lost’.” – Seth Meyers

    Seth Myers’ last comment, about why the President is saying ANYTHING during Romney’s tailspin is the best of the bunch, here!
    From the Peanut Gallery on the left, one can hear the muted chant of “Go Romney… Go Romney! Don’t change a thing, Mitt – you are doing just FINE! Just keep it up!”

    Did anyone notice the somewhat pathetic cry for attention as the top-billing on the ticket, this week, when Mitt introduced Paul Ryan to the crowd, which burst out in “Ryan! Ryan! Ryan!”? Mitt immediately quieted the crowd,
    admonishing them that, “NO! It’s “ROMNEY-Ryan! ROMNEY-Ryan!” Ryan just dug his hands into his pockets, with a somewhat sheepish look on his face, perhaps sensing that a Mitt & Paul duo may do more to tarnish his own political aspirations than not.

    Don’t change a THING, Mitt.
