Stephen Colbert put on his best faux conservative hat last night to describe the disaster that had befallen our nation: Obamacare had reached the dreaded 7 million sign-ups and millions more were about to get access to affordable health care. Colbert then went into a montage of the usual suspects (Hannity, Rove, Krauthammer, etc.), all saying the usual things.

Colbert repeated their dire warnings back to them:

COLBERT: How many are young? How many have paid? What if their check doesn’t clear? What are numbers anyway but artificial constructs? And did you know that these are Arabic numerals? I mean, the ’3′ is just two Islamic crescent moons stacked on top of each other.”

“The terrorists have won,” he concluded.

Can you help us out?
