Rachel Maddow spoke to author, filmmaker and resident Michigander Michael Moore about the upcoming Republican primary election in Michigan this Tuesday and the fact that both of their leading candidates, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, wanted to allow the auto industry to go bankrupt.

As Moore told Maddow "I have come to the conclusion that they are in a race with each other to see who can get the least number of votes from the Michigan citizenry."

Moore also weighed in on Santorum's recent comments attacking President Obama for encouraging Americans to pursue higher education and "Operation Hilarity" where Democrats are encouraging their voters to cross over and vote for Rick Santorum in the Michigan primary.
