Colbert Mocks Santorum by Making Light of Partial-Birth Abortion Concerns

On Thursday's The Colbert Report on Comedy Central, citing a recent article by conservative columnist George Will in which he asserted that Republicans "crave fun" in their presidential campaigns, host Stephen Colbert found amusement in GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum's concerns about partial-birth abortion as the Comedy Central host joked about playing a drinking game based on the former Senator's attention to the egregious abortion procedure.

After reading from Will's article, Colbert declared:

And, folks, you want fun? Santorum is the life of the party. Heck, he's the pro-life of the party. There's this great drinking game where you take a shot every time he says the words "partial-birth abortion."

Colbert took out a bottle of alcohol, and then showed a montage of clips of the former Pennsylvania Senator talking about partial-birth abortion, inpiring some audience members to laugh.
