To entice women voters and win back the White House, the GOP has to try a little harder. (3:49)

>> Jon: HEY, WELCOME BACK!

I HOPE YOU KNOW THE 2012 ELECTION WAS IN LARGE PART A FIGHT OVER DEMOGRAPHICS.

THE REPUBLICANS TAKING PAINS EVEN IF AT THEIR CONVENTION TO HIGHLIGHT THE GENDER AND ETHNIC

DIVERSITY THEIR PARTY HAS TRADITIONALLY DONE SO WELL DISGUISING.

(LAUGHTER) AND YET THEY LOST.

FOR SOME REASON-- SELF-DEPORTATION-- PRESIDENT OBAMA WON A CLEAR MAJORITY.

-- THE COUNTRY HALF MOOCHERS-- (LAUGHTER) OF OVER NON-WHITE GROUP.

EVEN AMONGST WOMEN.

VAGINAS REPEL RAPE SPERM.

(LAUGHTER) ROMNEY SOMEHOW LOST BY 11 POINTS.

IT'S A FACT REPUBLICANS CAN'T IGNORE IF THEY WANT TO WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE IN TWO THOUSAND

AND EVER.

(LAUGHTER) NO BAND-AID SOLUTIONS.

G.O.P. CAN'T JUST THROW IN A FREE PEDICURE EVERY MANDATORY ULTRASOUND AND CALL IT A DAY.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MAKING A REAL PLACE FOR MINORITIES AND WOMEN IN A MODERN REPUBLICAN

PARTY AND I THINK THE REPUBLICAN PARTY GETS THAT.

I ASSUME.

>> IN WASHINGTON TONIGHT, THE G.O.P. IS DEALING WITH THE ISSUE OF OPTICS AND DIVERSITY IN

POLITICS, GETTING A LOT OF COVERAGE OF THE CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE CHAIRS SELECTED THUS

FAR FOR THE NEXT CONGRESS.

THEY ARE ALL WHITE MALES.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

>> Jon: OH, I GUESS THEY ALL LOOK ALIKE TO YOU, WILLIAMS.

(LAUGHTER) I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW, THERE IS A GREAT DEAL OF DIVERSITY AND VARIETY IN THAT GROUP.

FOR INSTANCE, WITH THESE THREE GENTLEMEN ALONE LOOK LIKE THE KIND OF GUYS WHO WOULD SELL YOU

THREE VERY DIFFERENT TYPES OF INSURANCE.

(LAUGHTER) AND LOOK AT THIS GUY!

PAUL RYAN!

THAT GUY'S GOD A WIDOW'S PEAK.

THAT'S WEIRD.

THAT'S DIFFERENT.

AND THAT GUY, SURE, HE LOOKS LIKE YOUR AVERAGE LOCAL NEWS ANCHOR.

BUT THAT OTHER GUY NEAR HIM LOOKS LIKE YOUR AVERAGE SPORTS ANNOUNCER.

(LAUGHTER) SO THE BLAND WHITE GUY WITH GLASSES, THAT GUY'S NEARSIGHTED BUT THIS OTHER GUY WITH GLASSES,

THAT GUY'S GOT ASTIGMATISM.

THERE'S NO -- WHAT'S THAT?

REALLY, NEAR SIGHTED AS WELL?

(BLEEP).

ALL RIGHT.

WELL AT LEAST WITH THAT MANY DUDES IN THE GROUP STATISTICALLY SPEAKING AT LEAST ONE OF THEM'S

GOT TO BE GAY.

(LAUGHTER) (APPLAUSE) WHERE IS WALDO?

(LAUGHTER) BUT INSTEAD, INSTEAD ALL THE MEDIA'S ALL HYPERFOCUSED "THERE'S NO LATINOS OR BLACKS OR

WOMEN OR ASIANS." THERE'S GOT TO BE A GOOD REASON.

>> THE LEADERSHIP POINTS OUT THEY WERE SELECTED FOR A REASON, INCLUDING SENIORITY.

>> THERE'S ABOUT 20 WOMEN IN THE REPUBLICAN HOUSE CAUCUS AND NINE OF THEM WERE ELECTED IN 2010 AND 2012.

>> Jon: SO IT'S SENIORITY?

LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT.

THE PARTY THAT HATES THE TEACHERS UNIONS GIVES CHAIRMANSHIPS BASED ON TENURE?

(LAUGHTER) LOOK, IT'S A REPUBLICAN HOUSE.

NO MEDIA MOB OF P.C. DIVERSITY COPS IS GOING TELL HOW SPEAKER JOHN BANER WHAT TO DO.

>> CONGRESSWOMAN CAN DAYS MILLER OF MICHIGAN WILL CHAIR THE HOUSE ADMINISTRATION COMMITTEE.

>> Jon: WE GOT ONE!

WHOO!

A LADY WITH LADY PARTS!

SHE WILL BE THE CHAIR OF THE HOUSE ADMINISTRATION COMMITTEE WHOSE RESPONSIBILITIES

APPARENTLY RANGE FROM MAKING CONGRESS MORE OPEN AND ACCESSIBLE TO ENSURING THE HOUSE

RUNS EFFICIENTLY AND SMOOTHLY.

(AUDIENCE REACTS) (LAUGHTER) SO WE'VE GOT A WOMAN TO BE-- TO COIN A PHRASE-- THE HOUSEWIFE.
