Jon Stewart on the NY Senate's Attempts to Turn One Vote Gay: VIDEO


Jon Stewart took on the New York Senate's stalling on marriage equality last night, noting that while they haven't had the time to address civil rights for gays and lesbians, they have had time to pass a bill declaring corn the state vegetable.

  4. I wonder if our "sees a phallic symbol in everything he looks at guy" happened to notice that large ear of corn in the background of this piece? :)

    What will we tell the children?

  5. My bible tells me corn should not be sweet. Can I have a religious exemption to this 'state vegetable'?

  6. Isn't corn a grain and therefore not a vegetable?

  7. @Chris it's not just upstate that is conservative, brooklyn, queens, the bronx, staten island, and long island are also very conservative.

  9. Yes, it is JZN. It is in the grain-grass family and tomato and cucumber are fruits,etc. Those idiots can't even get that right. Also, Onions are flowering bulbs. I hope they can spare a minute to ponder the destiny of many of their fellow citizens.

  12. once again the state senate has proven to be a waste of taxpayer money. with all the other problems of the state and the work this session still has to do they worry about vegetables. maybe they should vote the turkey as the state bird and can use any of 62 senators pictures. time for them to go.

  13. lol GREGOIRE

    Btw gotta love Jon Stewart for being amongst our most persistent allies. One of these days I really need to drive up to a taping so I can shake his hand and thank him in person for always speaking on our behalf.

  14. Sparks,

    While I see where you are coming from, Stewart is not necessarily "speaking on our behalf", he just highlights what most intelligent, logical, decent people already know, that most Republicans are ass-hats and against equality for all of our citizens.

  15. Am I the only guy who wants to do him?
