    Martin Short at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Australia last year.

    On Wednesday's edition of "Late Show with David Letterman," Martin Short took center-stage to pay musical tribute to Mitt Romney.

    The "SCTV" and "SNL" funnyman poked fun at some of the GOP candidate's recent campaign gaffes with "It's Raining Mitt," a parody song modeled on "It's Raining Men."

    Before Short exercised his vocal chords, he told Letterman that the musical number was also intended as a tribute to the legendary talk-show host on the thirtieth anniversary of his popular CBS show.
