Best Political Jokes Of The Week: Jon Stewart, Colbert, Maher & More (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Any election season requires a healthy dosage of comedy to help navigate the tricky waters of BS and spin. Luckily, with roughly six thousand late night talk shows currently on the air, it's not hard to find sharp jokes tackling the day's issues.

We've begun rounding up the best monologue jokes about the week's issues from the likes of political satirists like Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher, as well as more traditional talk show hosts like Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon. This week, they address Obama's announcement that the government will no longer deport young undocumented immigrants, the Michigan "vagina" debacle, and the announcement that John Kerry will play Mitt Romney in Obama's prep debates.
