The National Organization for Marriage...gave me hives just typing it...the group against gay marriage because somehow it will ruin opposite marriage in some sort of hush hush conspiratorial way, has proudly posted the following Stephen Colbert clip on their website.
“I’ve always thought Stephen Colbert was a double-agent, pretending to pretend to be a conservative, to pull one over Hollywood. Now I’m sure,” said Maggie Gallagher, President of the National Organization for Marriage.
Maggie, sweetheart, I think you missed the biting satire that is the genius of The Colbert Report.

One more thing, Maggie, darling, Stephen and I were the only guys to be transferred Junior year into Northwestern's theatre program in 1984. (Granted his career launched just a bit higher than mine.) We lived, ate and breathed theatre together. We graduated together. And recently we reconnected at our twentieth year class reunion. Now, I'm not going to lie and say we're best buds, however I know the man. He's not trying to pull one over Hollywood.
I'm sure you'll disagree, so I have a personal dare. I dare you to get a direct quote from him espousing your views, rather than pulling from his show.
