* Kid Rock sings for the Mittster.

* NH Republicans mustering effort to repeal gay-marriage law, override gubernatorial veto.

* Obama fires up UAW convention in Washington.

* Santorum regrets use of term “throw up” re his reaction to JFK church-state speech. Rick’s comments made me kinda ill, too.
