Stephen Colbert on the GOP's Weird Hypocrisy: "Give Me Liberty and I Don't Want Liberty"

Leave it to Stephen Colbert to find the funny side of the debt ceiling debate -- one of the more tiresome, and frankly boring, topics to come out of Washington of late. Colbert slams the GOP over the hypocritical stance it's taken: "We've got to get our financial house in order, folks. The Chicken Little Democrats are so worried that the U.S. will 'default' on its 'loans' that they want to raise the U.S. debt ceiling! Come on! We already raised the debt ceiling under President Bush. That is so 2002... 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, and twice in 2008." Snaaaap.

That, and a fake Patrick Henry quote, below. (h/t digby)
