Late Night Political Humor

“It was announced today that former General Petraeus has agreed to testify before Congress. I guess he figured, ‘Why not?’ Those questions can’t be any tougher than the ones he’s getting at home right now.” – Jay Leno

“No wonder we don’t know what’s going on in Libya. They’re all too worried about chlamydia.” – Jay Leno

“This David Patraeus scandal is insane and has no signs of stopping. In a weird twist today, a jogger recently found the driver’s license of Patraeus’s mistress, Paula Broadwell, in a park. He knew it was her driver’s license because under sex it said, ‘Lots with David Patraeus’.” – Jimmy Fallon

“See, when a general tells his wife, ‘I was pitching a tent in Afghanistan,” technically he’s not lying.” – Jay Leno

“It’s now being reported that General Petraeus wanted to run for president. But, you know, he can still win. He’s an older white guy with a sex scandal, so there’s something there for Republicans and Democrats.” – Jay Leno

“The Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree is being put in place this afternoon. They bring it in and hoist it with a crane and steel cables. It’s the same way they get Chris Christie into his pants.” – David Letterman
