Late Night Snark: 100% Cliff-free!

"A lot of dissension among conservatives. One of the leaders of the Tea Party has resigned after a major split in the movement. The Tea Party is now divided between angry whites and even angrier whites."

---Conan O'Brien

"You've been warned, Harry Reid! Take away Mitch McConnell's filibuster and he will strike back by obstructing everything you do! Or let him keep the filibuster so he can obstruct everything you do!"

---Stephen Colbert

"Mitt Romney has a new job. He's going back to work. He got a job at a Marriott. When you're at the front desk arguing over your mini bar bill, Mitt will be the guy that comes from out back and says,'I understand there's some trouble?'"

---David Letterman

Clip of Chris Cilizza on NBC News: To vote for anything that is even perceived to be granting the U.N. power [like this United Nations Disabilities Treaty] is a dangerous game for a Republican senator, because the U.N. is so unpopular among the Republican base.

Jon Stewart: It's official: Republicans hate the United Nations more than they like helping people in wheelchairs.

---The Daily Show

"A new survey found that 'Sophia' and 'Aiden' were the most popular baby names this year. The least popular baby name was Kim Jong Sandusky."

---Jimmy Fallon

"We're making a sequel in Middle Earth. It's going to star Gandalf the Gay. And you'll get to find out who's his favorite dwarf."

---Ian McKellen on The Colbert Report

And one year ago:

"Y'know, that's one of the things I like about him. He's been consistent since he changed his mind."

---Christine O'Donnell, endorsing Mitt Romney for president

The more time goes by, the more I realize that the 2012 election season was 18 of the craziest, most wackydoodle months evuh. The limbo bar for 2016 has been set very low and I hope we can wriggle our way under it. Nate Silver says the odds are looking good.
