Colbert Helps Hannity By Scaring Crap Out Of Americans About Health Care Reform (VIDEO)

In a segment called "Health Care Hell-Scare - Die-agnosis: Mur-DR" Stephen Colbert picked up where Sean Hannity left off: Scaring the crap out of you about Obama's health care plan. Last night, Hannity hosted a show about the president's plan that called it a "universal nightmare," "universal health care scare," and "absolutely deadly." Sometimes we think Colbert's job is getting too easy.

Colbert began by explaining that he doesn't want to terrify you, but "inform you with terror or terroform you." He did this by bringing "real victims of European style medicine" out to answer viewer questions. The first was a Canadian man in a "coma," the second was a French mime who couldn't speak up when he disagreed with Stephen, and the third was an old clip of Salvador Dali.
