Late-Night Jokes About the Karl Rove Scandal


"Karl Rove, the mastermind behind George Bush's entire political career, is stepping aside to spend more time, I can only assume, spreading rumors about his family. ... For those of us who never got to know Karl Rove -- mostly because he refused to answer any of the public's questions -- who was he? [on screen: news reports of Rove's nicknames, including 'turd blossom']. Now, now. I know turd blossom sounds bad, but amongst turd-related nicknames, blossom is about as good as you can do. I guess turd rainbow maybe is the only other." –Jon Stewart

"It looks like there may be more people than just Karl Rove involved in this White House leaking scandal that's been going on. They are saying information may also have been leaked by the Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide -- a man named Scooter Libby. Let me tell you something right now. That is not a good name to have if you're going to prison." --Jay Leno
