Mitt Romney’s Late Show Top 10 Redux

December 20, 2011

It was like deja vu with Mitt Romney when the Republican presidential candidate presented the “Top Ten” list on the “Late Show with David Letterman” Monday night.

The script was different, and so were the clothes – but Romney’s latest late night TV performance looked and sounded a lot like the the previous one he gave  back in February.

This time, the former Massachusetts governor revealed the “Top Ten Things Mitt Romney Would Like to Say to the American People.”

Here’s the list (in reverse order):

    – “Isn’t it time for a president who looks like a 1970s game show host?”
    – “What’s up gangstas… it’s the M-I double-tizzle
    – “I have no proof, but I have a feeling Canada is planning something”
    – “Actually I’m only here to meet Tom Cruise”
    – “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night”
    – “My new cologne is now at Macy’s. It’s Mitt-stified”
    – “I just used all my campaign money to buy a zoo with Matt Damon”
    – “I can do a lot, but even I can’t fix the Indianapolis Colts”
    – “Newt Gingrich? Really?”
    – “It’s a hairpiece”

Romney’s first star turn as Top Ten reader was on Feb. 1.  It was a presentation of  the “Top Ten Things You Don’t Know About Mitt Romney.”

Here’s the clip.
