The whole Ground Zero mosque debacle has been debated to death over the last few weeks, and now Stephen Colbert has dropped the bomb on the discussion by taking it in a strange new direction – that of Dr. Strangelove.

Last night’s ‘Colbert Report’ featured Stephen’s popular “The Word” segment being punctuated by a stellar channeling of Peter Sellers’ performance in the classic Stanley Kubrick film Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Explaining it won’t do it justice. Just see it for yourself.

Watch last night’s The Colbert Report.
