LATE-NIGHT LAUGHS

David Letterman

“The next issue for the Supreme Court is defense of a Kardashian marriage.”

Jimmy Kimmel

“Until this morning, marriage in the United States was defined as a contract between one man, one woman and the producers of The Bachelor.”

Stephen Colbert

“If DOMA is unconstitutional that means the Constitution is gay. Of course, no real shocker. It was written by a bunch of dudes in wigs in the City of Brotherly Love, and it calls for a legislature that’s bicameral. It’s a bit curious. Plus, look at that aged parchment and fancy calligraphy. It looks like a gay wedding invitation.”

Jay Leno

“In the middle of all these scandals, President Obama got some good news today. The IRS ruled that he can write off the first half of his second term as a total loss.”

“President Obama gave a big speech on climate change. He believes global warming is getting worse because he’s sweating a lot more in his second term.”

Conan O’Brien

“In New York, the new front-runner in the New York City mayor’s race is Anthony Weiner. Some analysts say it’s due to name recognition. Actually, I think a few people recognize more than just his name.”

Bill Maher

“At the Berlin Wall, Obama said no wall can stand against the people’s yearning for freedom that burns in our heart – except for the one we’re going to build on the Mexican border.”

Jimmy Fallon

“Mitt Romney’s former campaign manager has launched a super PAC to stop Hillary Clinton from becoming president. It makes sense because if there’s one thing Romney’s campaign manager is good at, it’s stopping someone from becoming president.”
