Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers made the national “fake news” last night for her use of Bette in Spokane as an example of Obamacare problems.
Stephen Colbert referred to her as “Republican den mother” and aired a snippet of her response to Obama's State of the Union address in which she decries Bette's plight… followed by the explanation from The Spokesman-Review that Bette wouldn't use “that Obamacare website.”
“There's another flaw with Obamacare,” Colbert reported in mock seriousness. “You have to go on it to use it. That's how they get you.”
It's a pretty funny bit… and we're not just saying that because he mentioned the newspaper's coverage. On the other hand, it didn't hurt.
