Colbert Knows What Really Happened to Smiling, Anonymous Obamacare Lady

Stephen Colbert needed some cheering up last night, and while his audience did their best, it didn’t work. He’s “just too mad about Obamacare.” Specifically, he can’t believe the smiling stock photo from the front page of is gone.

“I’ll tell you why the change,” Colbert said, solving the mystery for his audience. “Death panels got her.” He explained that over the last month, he’s grown very close to “Obamacare lady,” after spending so much time together “loading and buffering and refreshing.”

Just in case the “death panels” didn’t actually kill the Obamacare lady, Colbert did a stock photo search of “vaguely ethnic smiling woman” and came up with nothing. “Maybe those laughing salad ladies know something,” he suggested.
