Try spit first. If it went through the paint and left a gash, your best bet is to get a polisher and a real fine cut polish. Maybe a clay bar would do it.

Auto body shops use a cleaner that removes excess wax, dirt , oil ,etc prior to painting. It removes most household paint as well but does not remove car paint. I used this when my wife ran into our garage and it worked very well. I also gave some to a friend who applied some paint to the front of his brand new Jeep Cherokee by rubbing it on a building. It won't get rid of scratches though.
