From this Monday's The Colbert Report, after first doing some gloating about the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act, and mocking CNN's Don Lemon for comparing President Obama and the problems with the new law to the crack-smoking idiot mayor of Toronto, host Stephen Colbert turned to wingnut Rep. Michele Bachmann.
