Dana Carvey wants Regis Philbin for president

Comedian Dana Carvey delivered a sample of his typical stand-up bits to late night audiences on Tuesday's "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," and -- no surprise -- the routine was jammed packed with political impersonations.

During Carvey's "Saturday Night Live" days, his best known presidential impression was that of George H. W. Bush, but since then he's added the current commander-in-chief to his repertoire, along with a slew of Republican presidential hopefuls.

Between various takes on President Barack Obama, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul, Carvey focused on something familiar he feels certain is lurking under the surface when it comes to Rick Perry.

"It's only a matter of time before Rick Perry does a 'Mission Impossible' thing with (pulling off) the mask and it's 'W'!" Carvey told host Leno. "'Hey, how ya' doing? I'm back!'"

As for the candidate Carvey is rooting for when it comes time to cast a vote, the funnyman would like to see one more option.

"We need a third party," he said. "Regis Philbin for president!"
