Stephen Colbert has parodied former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown's "Women for Scott Brown” award, the one he presented to local business owner Janice Leahy for operating a business in "a very tough environment not only for women-oriented businesses, but for everyone.” It was yet another one of the GOP's tone-deaf attempt to appeal to women, so of course Colbert created his own award -- the "Lady Achiever: No Penis? No Problem!" Award -- which he presented to Angela/Amy/Annie/Ariel, err, some woman.
