Top 10 Super Tuesday Palindromes

Chatterbox's call for readers to submit Super Tuesday palindromes yielded a gratifyingly large response.

(Memo to Dennis Dugan, re the submission you culled from the boys' bathroom wall at the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada: "Satan oscillate my metallic sonatas" is very intriguing, but Satan isn't running for president this year.) However, most readers embraced the Super Tuesday theme with gusto and imagination. Chatterbox salutes them.
