Stephen Colbert Responds To National Organization For Marriage Ad

Stephen Colbert responded to the recent ad by the anti-equality National Organization For Marriage, which warned of a "gathering gay storm" and a loss of freedom based on the fact that, for example, a gay couple down the street might be free to get married. First Colbert commented on the introduction of a same-sex marriage bill by Governor David A. Paterson (D) of New York, making reference to former governor Eliot Spitzer:

“Governor Paterson’s obsession with same-sex marriage just proves that he’s a perv. Why can’t we go back to the good old days when our governor upheld the traditional definition of marriage as being between a man, a woman and an Emperor’s Club hooker?”

Colbert then introduced his own ad "supporting" the National Organization For Marriage. It does indeed demonstrate the danger of the "gathering gay storm," in that one of the characters is struck by "the homo storm." Watch:
