Colbert on gay marriage, the latest pot-tastrophe, and Bongressman Jared Polis

Posted By on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 11:13 AM

Everybody's taking note of the Pew Research Center's historic poll revealing that the largest percentage of Americans ever support legalizing marijuana — 52 percent — and that includes Stephen Colbert.

In a four-and-a-half minute clip, the satirist laments the latest lost moral battle. "Now, it's bad enough, folks, that there's medical marijuana in 18 states, and recreational pot is now legal in both Colorado and Washington — and those two states are planning to turn Idaho into a bong. But now, even worse, people are comparing this pot-tastrophe to another attack on our values."

And, of course, he's talking about same-sex marriage. "You hear that? Same thing. 'Oh, oh, I can't help who I am. I was born attracted to watching seven hours of Planet Earth while eating a sack of croutons.'"
