Stewart: So why not encourage gay people to join in in that family arrangement if that is what provides stability to a society?
Bennett: Well I think if people are already members of families...
Stewart: What? (almost spitting out his drink)
Bennett: They're sons and they're daughters..
Stewart: So that's where the buck stops, that's the gay ceiling.
Bennett Look, it's a debate about whether you think marriage is between a man and a women.
Stewart:I disagree, I think it's a debate about whether you think gay people are part of the human condition or just a random fetish.
Damn. I don't think I've ever seen it put that succinctly.

  • Also, we apparently killed someone important in Iraq.  I'm already sick of hearing about it... Just put the president in a flight suit with a giant flag-emblazoned codpiece that shoots pyrotechnic star-spangled banners into the face of the inflammable effigy of Osama Bin-Laden, and get the goddamn photoshoot over with already.
  • "Fuck" costs $325,000 to utter over the airwaves:  The Federal Government just increased the price for saying "fuck" on TV or radio from $32,500 to $325,000. That's because Congress passed the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act (BDEA).
