Sup. Ct. DOMA decision as seen by Stephen Colbert & The Daily Show (video)

John Oliver of the Daily Show and Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report cover the Supreme Court’s historic decision striking down DOMA, and dismissing the Prop 8 case which means Proposition 8 is struck down and gay marriage is legal again in California.

They even have Samantha Bee!


Stephen Colbert:

“I for one cannot believe the court threw out DOMA, it was passed in 1996 to guarantee that traditional marriage was between one man and one woman for the sacred purpose of getting Bill Clinton reelected.”

Be forewarned, Colbert makes a bi pun. Who thinks those are funny?

    I glad we have moved along now to have some humor about old Bubba’s Clinton’s betrayal. My first thought before celebrating yesterday was: “F’ you Bill.

    A bicameral legislature? Oh, my!
    Let’s get “straight” into it? Oh, my!
    Both of those “reports”? Groan!
