Video: O'Brien, Stewart take on Romney

April 13, 2011|By Luke Broadwater

Perennial Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced his campaign exploratory committee on Monday and the comedians reacted Tuesday night.

On TBS, Conan O'Brien joked that Romney was running solely on "good looks" and edited his announcement video to make it, um, sexy and creepy? 

As for Jon Stewart on Comedy Central, he dubbed Romney "Captain Buzzkill" and said, "Not the guy who looks like anyone who's ever fired your dad!"

Thus far, the jokes about Romney are 1) He's good looking; and 2) He's a serious businessman. I'd say that's a lot better than most of the stuff one could say about Trump, Bachmann, Palin, etc. 

Watch the clips below.
