Mitt Romney CAN Be Funny

I doubt he wrote these himself, but he still delivered them in a humorous fashion. His Top 10 Reasons Mitt Romney Left The Race is much funnier than Letterman's, and not as snarky.

I liked! I thought the best bits were the jabs at himself, rather than at others. Especially the Al Gore = Fat joke, I thought that was a bit cheap. But overall, a good sport.

I probably laughed loudest at the Gore joke, but the self-directed ones were hilarious, too--except for the Osmonds one, which I still don't get.

Osmonds are Mormons. The gag being that he expected there to be enough Osmonds to carry him to victory since they would vote for a fellow Mormon. Arent jokes funny when they are explained?! As for the Gore "joke", I dont think "huhuhuh, he is fat" is a great joke.

Ah, I didn't tie the Osmonds joke to the election itself, just to Mormonism. Now I get it.

The reason I thought the Gore joke was funny was because you had to figure out it was Gore he was talking about. You're emphasizing the fat part--but when you put the fat, beard, and Nobel Prize together, the joke is greater than the sum of its parts.

I liked the one where he broke his hair. That hair does look like some sort of homage to Devo.
