Jimmy Kimmel on Saturday dressed down
Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich for their opposition to gay marriage.
Kimmel, the host of ABC's late night
talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live!, poked fun at celebrities,
politicians and the president as the featured comedian at this year's
White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in Washington, D.C.
In one joke, Kimmel let loose on
Santorum, the former Republican presidential candidate who strongly
opposes gay nuptials.
Kimmel said he felt for Republicans who
were left with Mitt Romney as their candidate before saying it just
wasn't Santorum's year.
“Rick's year is 1954,” Kimmel
joked. “You know, it's one thing to oppose gay marriage. It's
another all together to do it in a sweater vest.”
“It's great to see the Gingrichs here
tonight because I guess that means the check cleared,” he said
looking into the audience.
“Newt I have a question. How can you
be against gay marriage when you yourself are the son of two gay
parents? The Michelin Man and the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.”
“I don't understand politicians who
are against gay marriage. I don't understand anyone who's against
gay marriage. When you really think about it, aren't all marriages
kind of gay? I mean, as a man when you get married essentially what
you're saying is, 'I will never touch another woman as long as I
live. Now let's put jewelry on each other and dance,'” he added.
