    Does this man resemble a '70s game show host? He seems to think so.

    Mitt Romney took over the "Top Ten" presentation duties from David Letterman on Monday — and got in a few digs at himself and one at arch rival Newt Gingrich.

    As usual, the jokes came mostly at the expense of Romney's photogenic look and involved some puns on his unusual name — but one acknowledged the dead heat in which Romney and the former House Speaker are locked in the polls.

    The former Massachusetts governor, who's been on "The Late Show" before, listed the "Top 10 Things Mitt Romney Would Like To Say To The American People."

    Number 10: "Isn't it time for a president who looks like a 1970s game show host?"

    Number two: "Newt Gingrich? Really?"

    And number one: "It's a hair piece."
