Fox's Mike Huckabee got the treatment he deserved from Stephen Colbert after the God-awful "satire" he featured on his show over the weekend, with the "Jolly Holidays Caroling Company" proving to everyone once again that the right has no clue whatsoever when it comes to what most people consider humor.

Thankfully the same cannot be said for Colbert, who let them have it during his show this Wednesday:

COLBERT: It seems like the bad news about Obamacare keeps pouring in. It seems like every time I'm turning on the TV, I'm seeing me screaming about it, and frankly, I can't blame me. First the web site was broken, then it was fixed, and now a million people have signed up and I'm not the only one who's upset.

So is host of Fox News' “I still have a show?” Mike Huckabee. Last Saturday, he took Obamacare down with the power of song. […]

Folks, that is a great song to parody, because everyone know jokes get better the more times you repeat them. It's what comedians call the rule of twelve.

Colbert was so “inspired by Huckabee's “HuckaCarol” that he decided to make his own DVD of “anti-Obamacare song parodies.”

Order now before another million people sign up for Obamacare.
