Stephen Colbert set the bar, but comedy gold is common at D.C. event: Remember highlights from Jon Stewart, Craig Ferguson, Wanda Sykes, Seth Meyers, and...Laura Bush?!
By doing a more finely honed version of his usual Weekend Update shtick and taking extra shots at both MSNBC and CSPAN Saturday Night Live's head writer struck gold. To be fair, he also had an overabundance of material to work with including the candidates running for the 2012 Republican nomination, a now-battle-weary Obama, and the always amusing Donald Trump. (But more on him in the next slide.)
Best line: Okay, fine, one Trump gag: ''And then, of course, there's Donald Trump. Donald Trump has been saying he will run for President as a Republican. Which is surprising, since I just assumed he was running as a joke.''
