Mich. must-win for Romney? – Sprgfld Repub. politely calls out $300k charity chief – Globe makes Coakley comeback officially official

MITT MONITOR: So I haven’t really been paying that much attention to Our Man Mitt in a while, let’s see how he’s doing with this primary thing (Globe) …. That’s not so good. (NJ) And this could be worrying. (NYT) Not so good here, either (Politico)… This is just unfortunate (Slate)… and, oh, come on, Trump!? (Herald) Only Dana Milbank has Mitt’s back today. (WP)

DON’T WANT TO UPSET ANYONE, BUT…: The Springfield Republican asks very, very politely if perhaps the guy making $300k running five publicly-funded non-profits in Western Mass. is maybe a tad overpaid. It’s like the Bizarro Herald.

MARSHA, MARSHA, MARSHA: Probably because they’re still stinging from “that thing that happened in Jan. 2010 that we’re not allowed to talk about,” the Globe took their sweet time jumping on the Coakley Comeback bandwagon. Oh, and someone flash the maybe-this-means-the-indictments-are-coming sirens!
