Colbert on ENDA: “Make[s] it illegal to discriminate against lesbians, gays, batman and tartar sauce”

Stephen Colbert weighs in on the US Senate’s passage yesterday of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), legislation that would make it illegal to discriminate in employment based on sexual orientation or gender identity (basically, against gay or trans people, but a gay person also couldn’t refuse to hire someone because they’re straight).

Of course, as Colbert describes ENDA:

“They want to make it illegal to discriminate against lesbians, gays… batman… and tartar sauce.”

ENDA is expected to have a difficult time passing the US House, as Republican House Speaker John Boehner opposes it, though he doesn’t offer a terribly convincing reason.
