From Denny: Just when you think Colbert can't get any more outrageous, well, here he is with his usual grinning ridiculous. He does so love to lampoon any sacred cow a society even thinks it might get to venerate. In this case that's the Republican conservative idea of marriage is only meant for men and women, not men and men or women and women.
So, what does a self-respecting comic do with controversial taboo subjects in a culture? Why lampoon them from every angle, like the newly legalized gay marriage laws in Canada and Mexico.
America is still struggling with the notion of affording gays full human status. It is amazing how less than one percent of the population can actually be a wedge issue politically but the Republicans keep beating the drum to keep their base engaged. That base has now dwindled down to the range of 17 to 20 percent of the country, from a high of 48 percent.
"Invasion Of The Country Snatchers," is where Colbert lays out his concerns about the "invasion" of our country by immigrants, saying "This land has not seen this big a foreign invasion since the May Flower landed."
However, Colbert admitted he's "more concerned about our own gay citizens fleeing to Mexico or Canada where gay marriage is legal. This makes America the straight meat in a big, gay sandwich." Such is the funny Colbert logic.
Colbert asks: "Who will we turn to when we need a second class group of citizens to marginalize? This mosque thing isn't going to last forever."
