Late Night Political Humor

“Texas Senator Ted Cruz began a filibuster on the Senate floor. He’s trying to stop Obamacare and he vowed to keep speaking until he is no longer able to stand. And the good news: If he collapses from exhaustion he’ll be covered under Obamacare.” – Jay Leno

“I’ve got every Obamacare repeal vote on bootleg. I trade tapes with all the other fans. We call ourselves ‘Deadheads,’ because without health insurance a lot of people will die.” – Stephen Colbert

“Home Depot just announced that that it will cut health insurance for its part-time workers because of Obamacare. Home Depot’s CEO said he had a hard time breaking the news to employees. That’s because it took him three hours to find one.” – Jimmy Fallon

“Tomorrow night AMC will begin airing a ‘Breaking Bad’ marathon that will show every episode of the show leading up to Sunday’s series finale. This is how it ends: Walter White dies in a hospital waiting room while filling out all the paperwork for Obamacare.” – Jay Leno

“The U.N. General Assembly is here in New York City. Today, President Obama gave a big speech on the Middle East. The leaders from the Middle East said, ‘You have touched our hearts, and from now on we shall have peace.’ And Obama said, ‘Really?’ and they said, ‘No, but the look on your face was priceless.'” – Jimmy Fallon

“Today’s the annual grand opening of the U.N. We have leaders from all over the world, and when they come here they have diplomatic immunity. They can do whatever they want, break any kind of laws. I saw a dictator today walking up Broadway carrying a 16-ounce soda.” – David Letterman

“The U.N. deals with a lot of important issues. Today they spent the entire day trying to deal with that Ben Affleck as Batman thing.” – David Letterman

“At every U.N. session there’s a special promotion. Tomorrow it’s Angela Merkel bobblehead day.” – David Letterman

“At the U.N. this week, President Obama met with the president of Nigeria, who advised President Obama to eliminate America’s debt by sending out fraudulent emails.” – Jay Leno

“President Obama is now making a case for raising the debt limit. He said that raising the debt limit does not increase debt. And, you know, I have to defer to the president on this one because when it comes to increasing the debt, Obama knows what he’s talking about.” – Jay Leno

“Being president is one of the most stressful jobs in the world. It’s right up there with being Paula Deen’s publicist.” – Craig Ferguson

“Bill Clinton gave the keynote address today at the Clinton Global Initiative, the charity he started in 2005. Sometimes when presidents retire, they take it easy. But they quickly realize that if you’re not the president, nobody cares about you or anything you have to say. It is a condition also known as ‘being vice president’.” – Craig Ferguson

“I wonder what President Obama will do when he retires. I bet it will involve giving back somehow. He’ll make sure those in the developing world have the most important things they need to succeed — like a fake Hawaiian birth certificate.” – Craig Ferguson

“At most companies the official retirement age is 65. Not in TV. In TV you can work as long as you want — as long as you don’t make the mistake of winning your time slot. That will cause NBC to throw you out. Sorry, Jay.” – Craig Ferguson

“Russian President Vladimir Putin just revealed he may run for a fourth term in 2018. In fact, he already came up with a few campaign posters. One says, ‘I will put middle-class families first — on bus to Siberia.'” – Jimmy Fallon

“Another Putin poster said, ‘Putin in 2018, whether you vote or not.'” – Jimmy Fallon

“Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he may seek a fourth term. Putin added, ‘But that’s up for the people to decide.’ Then he laughed for ten minutes.” – Conan O’Brien

“Evil Russian Dictator Vladimir Putin is in town. He’s here to steal a World Series ring.” – David Letterman

[Added bonus, go read this article by Bill Maher: “California: Tea Party Free Zone“. It is actually very funny and insightful.]

    Jeebus, Jay Leno can’t get off of my TV soon enough. He knows he contributes to the “conventional wisdom.” He knows he repeats lies. He doesn’t care. Too busy waxing his 200 cars with $100 bills.
