Rick Larsen – 2nd funniest in DC
Who knew Congressman Rick Larsen was a funny guy? In fact, he’s the 2nd funniest celebrity in Washington, D.C.
White House Speechwriter Jon Lovett won the contest. Larsen came in second with a cracks like this:
“No one’s at the White House tonight, but how is that different from the last two years?”
There have been a long of changes in the past year. Larsen talked about what’s going on with his sons and wife. “So, a lot of changes. Oh yeah that’s right, and Democrats got their asses kicked in the election.”
“Being on the floor of the House of Representatives is a little like being on AMC. You’re either a part of the Walking Dead, or your Mad Men.”
He talked about doing a Tea Party forum during his re-election campaign. “I felt like the only rib eye at a lion convention.”
The biggest laughs came when he was talking about the toughest job in the world, being third in command at Al Qaeda.
“We have killed that guy like seven times. Whenever we need a good morale boost, nothing does it like killing the third in command at Al Qaeda.”
