During last week's televised debate, Fox News's Chris Wallace asked Rick Santorum whether he thought Ron Paul had been smoking (!?) mushrooms. Today, Mitt Romney made reference to the Beatles' trippy Magical Mystery Tour while trying to ding Barack Obama's bus tour of the Midwest.

"During his Magical Misery bus tour this week, it is unlikely President Obama will speak with unemployed Americans, to near-bankrupt business owners, or to families struggling to survive in this economy."

Too bad Pawlenty's gotten out of this thing. Surely, it was only a matter of time before he linked Michele Bachmann's bugged-out eyes to a bad trip.
