Tim Pawlenty opposes charisma, Herman Cain misunderstands the Constitution, and Michele Bachmann battles migraines, so Mitt Romney emerges as the GOP's thick-maned Aslan. (5:51)

ALL RIGHT.

NOW WE'RE GETTING THERE.

LET'S SEE WHERE GOVERNOR TIM

PAWLENTY IS AT.

HE'S GOT THERE 4.4 MILLION

RAISED.

>> FORMER GOVERNOR TIM PAWLENTY

KICKED OFF THREE WEEKS OF IOWA

BODILY HARM STORMING IN ADVANCE

OF THE STRAW POLL NEXT MONTH

WITH AN R.V. STORM AND A WARNING

THAT IOWANS SHOULD NOT RAISE

THEIR SUPPORT ON CHARISMATIC

CANDIDATES WHO CAN'T ACTUALLY

WIN.

>> Jon: OH, TIM PAWLENTY

TAKING A BOLD STAND AGAINST KRIS

MATT.

[LAUGHTER]

IT'S GOT NO PLACE IN POLITICS.

HEY, LOOK, THIS IS NOT A

POPULARITY CONTEST.

OH, IT IS?

OH.

WELL, I WONDER HOW "THE DAILY

SHOW" WILL DEPICT PAWLENTY'S

DEMISE.

[LAUGHTER]

IF A PAWLENTY CAMPAIGN FALLS IN

THE WOODS, DOES IT MAKE A SOUND?

WHO'S NEXT.

>> HERMAN CAIN RAISED $2.5

MILLION.

>> Jon: $2.5 MILLION FOR

HERMAN CAIN.

THAT'S A LOT OF PEPPERONI FOR

THE GODFATHER OF PIZZA.

WHY IS CAIN CONNECTING?

>> I THINK I'M CONNECTING

BECAUSE OF MY PASSION ABOUT MY

SUPPORT AND BELIEF IN THE

CONSTITUTION.

>> Jon: YES.

HERMAN CAIN HAS PASSION.

SUPPORT AND BELIEF IN THE

CONSTITUTION.ñr

BUT DOES HERMAN CAIN HAVE AN

UNDERSTANDING OF THE

CONSTITUTION?

>> YOU SAID THIS WEEK THAT YOU

OPPOSE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW

MOSQUE IN MURFREESBORO,

TENNESSEE.

WHAT'S YOUR OBJECTION TO THEIR

BUILDING A NEW MOSQUE?

>> OUR CONSTITUTION GUARANTEES

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.

ISLAM COMBINES CHURCH AND STATE.

THEY ARE USING THE CHURCH PART

OF OUR FIRM TO INFUSE THEIR

MOSQUE IN THAT COMMUNITY, AND

THE PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY DO

NOT LIKE IT.

THEY DISAGREE WITH IT.

>> Jon: RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT.

FIRST LET'S ADDRESS...

[LAUGHTER]

WHAT I BELIEVE MAY BE SOME

PRONOUN ISSUES.

[LAUGHTER]

USING "OUR" FIRST AMENDMENT TO

BUILD "" MOSQUE.

IN REALITY, THE FIRST AMENDMENT

PROTECTS "THEIR" MOSQUE FROM

"US."

>> SO YOU'RE SAYING ANY

COMMUNITY, IF THEY WANT TO BAN A

MOSQUE...

>> YES, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO

DO THAT.

THAT'S NOT DISCRIMINATING BASED

UPON RELIGION AGAINST THEIR

PARTICULAR RELIGION.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: I'M PRETTY SURE THAT'S

THE DEFINITION OF DISCRIMINATING

BASED UPON RELIGION.

LET ME SEE IF I CAN ILLUSTRATE

THAT BY REPLACING THE WORD

MOSQUE IN THAT SENTENCE IN THE,

YES, THEY CAN BAN THE MOSQUE

SENTENCE, WITH THE WORD CHURCH.

OR SYNAGOGUE OR CHURCH-SYNAGOGUE

OR SCIENTOLOGY CELEBRITY CENTER.

UNLESS YOU'RE SUGGESTING ISLAM

IS OTHER THAN AN RELIGION.

>> ISLAM IS BOTH A RELIGION AND

A SET OF LAWS, SHARIA LAW.

THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

ANY ONE OF OUR OTHER TRADITIONAL

RELIGIONS WHENWHERE IT'S JUST

ABOUT RELIGIOUS PURPOSES.

>> Jon: YES, YES, YES.

[LAUGHTER]

IT'S VERY DIFFERENT.

IT'S VERY DIFFERENT.

I READ ABOUT THE STRANGENESS OF

THEIR COMBINATION OF RELIGION

AND LAWS IN MY PEOPLE'S HOLY

BOOK, THE TORAH, WHICH

TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH

LITERALLY MEANS "THE LAW."

I DON'T THINK THE PREDATORS ARE

EVEN GOING TO BOTHER WITH THIS

ONE.

[LAUGHTER]

THAT'S ADORABLE.

OF COURSE, THERE'S ONE CANDIDATE

WHO SEEMS TO BE GAINING STRENGTH

BY THE DAY, MICHELE BACHMANN,

BUT CAN HER $4.2 MILLION

FUND-RAISING HELP FED OFF

QUESTIONS ABOUT HERRELLTIVE LACK

OF EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE, AND

THIS THING.

>> FORMER AIDES SAY THE

CONGRESSWOMAN IS PRONE TO

"DEBILITATING MIGRAINES."

>> WILL MICHELE BACHMANN'S

MIGRAINES HURT HER BID?

>> SHOULD THIS BE CONSIDERED A

CAMPAIGN ISSUE?

>> Jon:, GOT TO SAY, OF ALL MY

ISSUES WITH MICHELE BACHMANN'S

BRAIN...

[LAUGHTER]

MIGRAINE'S NOT EVEN TOP 20.

BUT WHO ARE WE KIDDING?

WE KNOW WHO THE CLEAR

FRONT-RUNNER IS.

$18 MILLION RAISED, MITT ROMNEY

IS THE KING OF THE JUNGLE.

HE'S THE SUPER PREDATOR OF THE

RACE.

HE'S THE REPUBLICAN'S LEADER.

BACK-UP WEEKEND GRETCHEN THINKS

THERE MAY BE ONE BIG DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN ROMNEY.

>> I THINK HE COULD GET A LOT OF

MONEY FROM THAT.

>> BIG TIME.

>> ROMNEY OBVIOUSLY NOT BEING A

CHRISTIAN.

>> Jon: WHAT?

SOMEONE GET THAT WOMAN TO BOOK A

MORMON.

REALLY, ? CAN'T GET IN UNTIL

FEBRUARY 2014?

WOW, THAT THING IS DOING WELL.

WELL, I'M SURE BACK-UP WEEKEND

GRETCHEN'S PRODUCERS WILL POINT

OUT THE FALLACY OF HER REASONING

DURING THE NEXT COMMERCIAL

BREAK.

>> DURING THE 6:00 A.M. I

MENTIONED THAT MITT ROMNEY WAS

NOT A CHRISTIAN.

HE IS A MEMBER OF THE JESUS

CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS

CHURCH, AND THAT CHURCH DOES

CONSIDER ITS MEMBERS CHRISTIANS.

>> Jon: OH, AND ONE OTHER

THING, TIME FOR LUTHERANS TO

[BLEEPED] OR GET OFF THE POT.

REFORMATION IS OVER.
