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.

Today’s fun video: Colbert on Super Bowl Coke ad

 

Stephen Colbert makes fun of the conservative furor over “America the Beautiful” being sung in multiple languages in Coca Cola's Super Bowl ad. 

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm waiting for some furor — conservative, liberal, bipartisan, academic or whatever — over Fox's selective editing of the Declaration of Independence, which was only partially read before the start of the game. Who are they trying to appease?

To see what the “reading” left out, go inside the blog.

Spin Control returns after some light days with a fun video for your viewing enjoyment.

Why this video? you may ask.

Because Colbert “interviews” an old friend and colleague, Kim Barker of ProPublica, for part of the video. And, of course, because it's funny.

Today’s fun video: Spokane’s keyboard cat makes it big(ger)

Readers of Doug Clark’s column will recognize the Spokane connection to Monday night’s  Daily Show closer. (The video comes direct from Comedy Central, which means it has a 30 minute commercial before the 1-minute bit. Sorry about that).
