Oh, Obamacare -- so rife with problems! The disgrace of having a barely functional Web site is overshadowed only by the appalling fact that the healthcare act makes women (gasp) equal to men! Fox News, for one, is outraged by this:

"When it comes to medical care, men always get the short end of the long end of the scope," joked Stephen Colbert on "The Colbert Report." "You see folks -- up until now, health insurance in America has always struck a delicate balance. Women paid higher premiums than men, and in return, men paid less. The system worked."

"Under Obamacare, men will pay the same amount as women," said Colbert, expressing mock outrage, "and yet we still don't get to pass a cantaloupe with toenails through our genitals!"
