Some hot pockets fresh from the oven:

* 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.

* New PPP poll shows Scott Walker trailing both of likely opponents in recall election.

* Next Dancing With the Stars contestants announced: no GOP pols this time, but instead: Gladys Knight! Woo-woo!
