Stephen Colbert weighed in on the prospects of Michigan voters connecting with GOP presidential candidates ahead of their primary race and the efforts by the front runners to do so, whether it be Mitt Romney speaking before an empty stadium, talking about "the trees that are the right height" or Mittens talking about his "great friends" that are NASCAR team owners, or Rick Santorum calling President Obama "a snob" for wanting Americans to go to college and "indoctrinating" our children.

Stephen Colbert weighed in on the prospects of Michigan voters connecting with GOP presidential candidates ahead of their primary race and the efforts by the front runners to do so, whether it be Mitt Romney speaking before an empty stadium, talking about "the trees that are the right height" or Mittens talking about his "great friends" that are NASCAR team owners, or Rick Santorum calling President Obama "a snob" for wanting Americans to go to college and "indoctrinating" our children.

I've said it before about Jon Stewart and I'll say it again here. As long as we've got this current debacle which is the GOP presidential primary race, both Stewart and Colbert aren't going to be running out of material any time soon.

It's really pathetic when on a daily basis you've got to wonder if the headlines coming out of their campaign appearances are real, or something The Onion published as a parody.

Can you help us out?
