Nothing like a swift karate chop to the funny bone to set the tone right!
Five minutes into the 2012 Emmys, it's already pretty clear Jimmy Kimmel will not pull any punches!
Not afraid to admit that most of his Staples Center audience is a little left of center on the political spectrum, Jimmy took early shots at Republicans.
Ch-ch-check out his cracks against presidential candidate Mitt Romney, noted republican actor Kelsey Grammer, and controversial fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A (above)!
It was a HIGHlarious and unusual way to start the show but, don't worry, there was still an obligatory Charlie Sheen crack!
