Gaymarriage_colbert

Stephen Colbert is now blasé about the whole gay marriage thing (because it's popular!) but last night he expressed surprise about the most recent state to come down:

"Gay marriage is legal in Alaska! Gay couples will have the right to celebrate the traditional Alaskan way - by having Bristol Palin cold-cock one of their guests."

He also took a look at recent statements by the Catholic church that have been perceived as welcoming to gay people.

After hearing Jeffrey Toobin tell Wolf Blitzer that it's "inevitable the rest of the country will follow" the states that have adopted gay marriage, Stephen Colbert thanked his wife Lorraine "for 25 good years" and welcomed his new husband and welcomed his new "government-mandated life partner Roger Cornsworth."

Still, Stephen is "pumped to the gavels" for the start of the Supreme Court session and takes a look at the rise in influence of "friend of the court", or amicus briefs, which were cited by SCOTUS 124 times from 2008 to 2013.

"As a wise man once said, there's nothing wrong with quoting someone who doesn't know what they're talking about."

Colbert welcomes Professor Allison Orr Larsen to examine whether this phenomenon is a good or a bad thing.

On Thursday's episode of The Colbert Report, author Lynn Sherr sat down with Stephen to promote her new book Sally Ride: America's First Woman in Space. While there, Sherr was asked about Ride's posthumous coming out and whether or not Ride was always gay or if her trip to outer space turned her that way. 

"Because that's what happened to the Fantastic Four," Colbert commented. "The cosmic rays....and they got all fantastic."

Stephen Colbert Highlights the Values Voter Summit and Bobby Jindal's Return to the 'Stupid Party' - VIDEO

Colbert

On a recent segment on his show, Stephen Colbert looked back on the "four day orgy of people fundamentally opposed to orgies" known as the Values Voter Summit. The anti-gay extravaganza, which took place in D.C. this past weekend, featured such notable opponents of equality as Michele Bachmann, Tony Perkins, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, and many others. 

Colbert also announced during the segment that he would be throwing his support behind Louisiana Governor (and VVS attendee) Bobby Jindal for president - who despite a post-2012 election call for the GOP to "stop being the "stupid party," is now firmly back on the side of right-wing nuttery.
