Jon Stewart on Gay MarriageJon Stewart on gay marriage:
"I think it’s a travesty that people have forced someone who is gay to have to ‘make their case’ that they deserve the same basic rights."Jon Stewart had Mike Huckabee on his show as a guest last night, and a good portion of their conversation turned to gay marriage. Stewart made one of the most thoughtful and level headed arguments in favor of gay marriage (and against Huckabee's talking points) that I've seen in quite a while. The above quote was in response to Mike Huckabee claiming that "“[T]hose who support same-sex marriage have a lot of work to do to convince the rest of us.” Well said, Jon, well said.
I saw the segment live last night by some stroke of luck, but Pandagon has the entire interview. Watch it. You'll love Jon Stewart all over again (and who said he was weak on interviews?).
