'Late Show's' David Letterman endorses Rick Santorum for president

CBS

Last night on "Late Show," David Letterman made a big announcement: He's endorsing Rick Santorum for president.

Letterman then explained the method to his madness: "He doesn’t have a chance in hell," the host said, but he added that the candidate sure did inspire. He then went on to introduce another Top 10 List focusing on the candidate he didn't endorse -- Mitt Romney. This time, it was called "Top 10 Other Things Mitt Romney Likes About Michigan’s Trees." (This based on a comment Romney made earlier about being back in his home state: "It's great to be back in Michigan; the trees are the right height.")

Among the winning reasons: "They tend to lean any way the wind blows them -- just like I do."

Meanwhile, over at "The Colbert Report," Stephen Colbert had an announcement of his own. He was celebrating the 1000th episode of the "Report." Take that, Simpsons!

After patting himself on the back for the achievement, Stephen Colbert introduced the new rising stars of the Grand Old Party. Here are the names to watch, according to Colbert: Indiana's Bob Morris, who opposes Girl Scouts (he says they are "a radical feminist organization that promotes abortion and homosexuality"), and New Hampshire’s Kyle Jones -- a 20-year-old congressman who lives at home with mom, who herself is also a state representative (here's their shared website) -- and who is fervently against the idea of mandatory lunch breaks at work.
