(Bob Wells)

      Mitt Romney is accusing Rick Santorum's campaign of being "deceptive" and using "dirty tricks" in making robo calls telling Democratic voters to come out to the polls Tuesday in Michigan and vote against Romney. Translation, Mitt's mad he didn't think of the idea of calling Democrats first. (Janice Hough)

      Mitt Romney told supporters in Michigan about attending the Golden Jubilee celebration of the American automobile as a young boy. The problem is that the event took place nine months before Mitt was born.

      Mitt Romney defends his statement about his wife's two Cadillacs by saying that "If people think that there is something wrong for being successful, they should vote for the other guy."

      Congratulations to Mitt Romney. He won in Arizona and Michigan. Romney is so excited, he almost loosened his tie. (Jay Leno)

      Mitt Romney won Michigan today, although he lost with GOP voters without a college degree, and lost by a wide margin amongst those making less than $100,000 a year. In short, Mitt got all the GOP primary voters with two Cadillacs. $4 million for a slim primary win in Michigan. And Mitt campaigns on the idea of cutting wasteful spending. Romney might have done better if he donated the money to the Detroit Tigers to buy another pitcher. (Janice Hough)

He said it's easy. All he had to do is dump out the hundred-dollar bills and throw the bag over his head. (Conan O'Brien)

They go well with a nice Sancerre." (Andy Borowitz)

      Rick Santorum Tuesday night talked in his speech about "the men & women who signed the Declaration of Independence." Yeah, I can see why Santorum's so down on education, he clearly hasn't retained much of his. (Janice Hough)

      Rick Santorum said Sunday he wanted to throw up when he first saw JFK insisting on separation of church and state. JFK said it to Protestant ministers in the 1960 campaign. Throwing up is a strong reaction, but Gerber's strained carrots aren't a hit with every baby. (Argus Hamilton)

      Not a good day for Rick Santorum. I haven't seen him this depressed since they invented the birth control pill. (Jay Leno)

      Rick Santorum says that President Obama is a snob who wants every American to go to college. What is it with this guy? President Obama could save a man's life, and Santorum would say, "Obama is clearly distracted and has higher priorities than running our country." (Alex Shubert)

      I think Rick Santorum learned something yesterday. He learned that electoral college is not for everyone. Not everyone needs to go the electoral college. (Jay Leno)

      Newt Gingrich is calling himself, "The $2.50 a gallon of gas president." Funny, but just the idea of him being president gives me gas. (Tim Hunter)

      President Obama ripped Republicans Thursday for always wanting to drill for more oil to solve our energy needs. Hey, it's our planet. When Dick Cheney's daughter told him she was a lesbian, he told her he didn't mind as long as she always drives a gas-guzzler. (Argus Hamilton)

Must be nice. (Stephen Colbert on Rick Santorum calling Obama a snob for suggesting that kids should go to college)
