Jay Leno may parrot some ridiculous progressive talking points, but unlike so many comedians, his funny bone doesn’t seize up when the Left is ripe for mockery. As Twitchy reported on Tuesday, the Associated Press shunning the term “illegal immigrant” is comedy gold.

Newbusters caught Leno’s take:

And in a groundbreaking move, the Associated Press, the largest news gathering outlet in the world, will no longer use the term ‘illegal immigrant.’ That is out. No longer ‘illegal immigrant.’ They will now use the phrase ‘undocumented Democrat.’

High praise:


Rush Limbaugh noted on his program today that he coined the term “undocumented Democrats.”

Here’s a transcript of Limbaugh using the phrase in 2010:
