Late Night Political Humor

“IRS: No one needs to avoid scandals more than you. You’re less popular with Americans than exercise.” – Seth Meyers

“I mean really, the government only keeps you around to make the DMV look good.” – Amy Poehler

“Really, Tea Party? Really? You’re surprised that you’re targeted by the IRS? You named yourself after a group of people who proudly and historically violated tax laws! Look, if I had a vanity license plate that said ‘Weed 420,’ I might expect to get pulled over now and then.” – Amy Poehler

“And really, politics aside, should we be surprised that the IRS takes special attention to the tax forms of the Tea Party? Judging from the terrible spelling on their protest signs, attention to detail isn’t really their thing.” – Seth Meyers

“President Obama this week denied that he knew about the inspector general’s report detailing the IRS’s increased scrutiny of conservative groups. So nothing to worry about, America, there’s just a bunch of stuff happening that the president doesn’t know about.” – Seth Meyers

“The President also condemned the IRS for targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny saying, ‘Public service is a solemn privilege’. In response, Joe Biden quietly deflated his whoopee cushion.” – Seth Meyers

“Minnesota this week became the 12th state in the country to legalize gay marriage. So finally Minneapolis can stop pretending St. Paul is just its ‘twin’.” – Seth Meyers

“Prince Harry this week toured the Jersey Shore with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. It was the first meeting between the Prince, of the House of Windsor, and the Governor, of the House of Pancake.” – Amy Poehler
