Colbert: Obama is using your tax dollars to create an “army of flesh-thirsty young sluts”

Stephen Colbert has been hitting it out of the park on “women’s issues” lately! Just last week we posted his take-down of those awful Summer’s Eve douche commercials.

Last night, he turned his faux-Conservative outrage on the new Department of Health and Human Services policy that insurance companies must now cover birth control and other women’s preventive health care services (HPV vaccines, STI testing, etc) without a co-pay.

The result was predictably hilarious, and featured a moment of convulsively funny physical comedy in which Colbert mimed being a T-Rex putting on a condom (it makes perfect sense in context).

Also, if no one minds, I shall henceforth be referring to the Feminsting community – bloggers and readers all – as The Army of Flesh-Thirsty Young Sluts. Time to go make us some dog-tags!

    If we’re going to be the Army of Flesh-Thirsty Young Sluts we’re going to need titles like “Sargent Slut” and “Lieutenant Loose”.

    One of my new favorite clips! That image that a woman will “pop a pill” then have sex with everyone in the pharmacy because the government paid for the pill doesn’t sound far off from some of the irrational fears expressed by the policy’s opponents. Maybe it’s time to show Chicken Little the sky isn’t falling?

    i’m still a bit intimidated by the idea of nymphomaniacal orgiastic abandon. sounds like a helluva lot of fun, though.

    You know, in these troubled times, it’s sometimes hard to tell policitical satire from political rhetoric. I’d like to thank Colbert for drawing the line with his T-rex condom reenactment.

    That clip was hilarious!

    But wait wait wait…how did spray tan victim jump from the government paying for abuse counseling to paying for mani-pedis? Seriously?!?!

      Obviously because having sex and not getting pregnant is a luxury only men are allowed to have.

    There are many alternative sources of video to HULU, ones that can be viewed outside of the U.S.
    The Summer’s Eve Colbert video can be watched here:

    And the Colbert women’s health nazi video is available here:

    Would the Americans and those living within the U.S., mind not posting HULU videos?
