Stephen Colbert took some more shots at the Republicans and their primary race this Wednesday evening and was seemed very grateful that his countdown to loving Mitt clock had not run down yet.

COLBERT: Folks, the Alabama and Mississippi primaries were last night and the stakes for Romney were high, or as Mitt would say, just the right height, because if he won either state, he could dispel doubts and the conservatives and I would have to start loving him. Which of course I do, as long as I have no other choice.

But I do, because after a week of candidates forcing "cheesy grits" down their throats, and ya'lls out of their throats, the deep South has spoken and for once, the nation could understand what they were saying. [...]

Long, slow and painful. Thank you Jesus! This is great. This is great. The Democrats had the same situation the last time when they won last time in 2008. Now the Republicans get that Hillary vs Obama magic, minus any women or black people, or magic.

He also went after Santorum and his teleprompter remarks, but failed to point out that if Santorum really thinks it "should be illegal" to read off of one, maybe someone should ask him why he was using one at CPAC 2012.
