Jon Stewart Mocks Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney's Latest Political Ads (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On Thursday night's "Daily Show" Jon Stewart caught up with the GOP primary race in a special "It's Still Only February" edition of Indecision 2012, this time focusing on frontrunners (we think -- we can't keep up anymore) Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum's latest political ads.

First, Stewart pointed out some pretty funny inaccuracies in Romney's latest ad aimed at connecting with Michigan voters, which shouldn't be too hard since he grew up there. But in his attempt to not look like an out-of-touch billionaire who suggested we let Detroit to go bankrupt, Romney accidentally showed a photo of himself and his father in New York City (instead of Michigan). The fact that the car he drives in the ad is made in Canada was just a bonus.

But on to the good stuff: Rick Santorum's "Rombo" ad that had Jimmy Kimmel cracking up on his show the other night. A while back, Jon Stewart put a moratorium on jokes about Santorum's other meaning. So when he saw the ad -- which features a cardboard cut-out of Santorum being hit with big globs of "mud" -- you can just imagine how hard it was for him to resist.

"This is entrapment!" Stewart joked.

Watch the full clip above.
