Designing Women, Fruit Ninja, Ranch Dressing: Mitt Romney's Inauguration Day

Most of the late-night shows were off the air Monday night because of Inauguration Day. But Stephen Colbert pointed out the hypocrisy at taking a day off because of a fake celebration.

"Everybody was obsessed with something they kept calling 'The Second Inauguration of Barack Obama.' "

Colbert whipped out a pocket Constitution. 

"Wrong! Check your Constitution," he said. "The president shall be inaugurated on January 20. Stephen Colbert is right, love the Founding Fathers."

But imagine you're Mitt Romney watching this thing. Obama misstates the oath of office again, and instead of you up there getting it right, you're at home watching a Designing Women marathon, playing Fruit Ninja on the toilet, and drinking ranch dressing straight from the bottle. At least that's what Colbert guessed. Also check out what Jon Stewart predicted Romney would have said after seeing Obama botch the oath.

But for today's must-see moment, fast-forward to 4:38 to see Colbert give his take on what the inaugural poet should have been.

Check out the best of the late-night show's political humor from last night...
