On Monday night's episode of "The Tonight Show," comedian and actor Martin Short weighed in on GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney with a hefty diss.

Short, who is Canadian, first joked that his native land isn't as big a fan of Romney as they have been with others because "he hasn't shipped that many jobs toward our country," a joke that mostly went over the heads of those in Leno's audience.

But Short didn't stop there. His next zinger pinpointed exactly what he finds funniest about the former Massachusetts Governor: his milquetoast personality.

"For a party that seems to fear gays as much as they do, now the Republicans have fallen head-over-heels for a big stiff one."
