Thursday night’s installment of a delightful evening program hosted by Jon Stewart unpacked the latest marriage news.
“As you know, marriage is under attack,” began Stewart. “So much so that our congress passed a defense of marriage act and President Clinton signed it into law because it was the 90s and everything was ironic.”
Stewart continued, “The Defense of Marriage Act protected marriage from the scourge of no-fault divorce and the economic volatility in family care issues that put so much strain on married couples… I’m kidding, it was about gay people.”
Shortly thereafter, Senator Lindsey Graham proposed a threeway with Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman.
