Last night, Stephen Colbert took on my home state, Missouri, and its proposed "Don't Say Gay" Bill in his segment "The Word," and he does an excellent job showing how ridiculous the whole concept actually is.
I feel like recently Missouri is becoming a national embarrassment. Maybe it is because I no longer live there, but with everything from putting a sculpture of Rush Limbaugh in the state capitol's "Hall of Famous Missourians", advancing a birther bill, and voting for Santorum, I feel it is taking a nose dive into crazy.
Here are a few choice lines from Stephen's takedown of "Don't Ask, Don't Show and Tell."
If the "Don't Say Gay" bill passes it will instantly be know as the "Ya Know" bill.
Where does the tolerance end? Kirk Cameron's house?
In English class we need to stop saying words that even remotely sound gay, like ambiance and periwinkle.
A-bomb now dropped from the "Enola Confirmed Bachelor."
Check out the full clip after the jump, and for you Missourians out there, take the time to call or email your state reps and let them know that this law does not express the beliefs of Missourians.
