Colbert: Senile Lieberman Suffering From "Joe-Mentia" (VIDEO)

The Senate Health Care Bill dropped both the public option and the alternate plan that allowed 55 to 65-year-olds to buy into Medicare. As Stephen Colbert put it, "the only reform left in the bill is government mandated post-appointment lollypops."

Colbert credited "hermaph-Repblican" Joe Lieberman, for he is the only man with the "true political courage to oppose a bill when you don't know what's in it." To show his "gratitude," Colbert broke out in song, serenading Lieberman with a stirring rendition of "For He's a Jowly Good Fellow."

Also catching Colbert's attention was the fact that just three months ago, the Senator actually proposed an option for 55-65 year olds to buy into Medicare - implying that Lieberman threatened filibuster his own proposal and must be suffering from "Joe-Mentia."
