What Would We Do Without These Guys?
TV is a travesty, but thank God for Mssrs. Stewart and Colbert. Spoofing an ad by the National Organization for Marriage, last night's Colbert Report gave us a priceless look at how to respond to "the giant gay storm coming." This, on the heels of Colbert's unsparing take on "Bill of Rights lovers" and Obama's decision to deny habeas corpus to Bagram detainees. It was based on "a longstanding principle of American justice – you're guilty until proven forgotten about."
Bagram prisoners, he argues, "must have done something really unforgiveable, like remind Obama he was once a professor of constitutional law."
