Stephen Colbert: “I’m here, they’re queer, let’s talk about something else”

Stephen Colbert interviews gay marriage super-lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies, the attorneys who argued the Proposition 8 case in California, and won.

As you know, Prop 8 — which repealed gay marriage in California — was struck down by a lower court, and then the Supreme Court ruled that the bad guys’ appeal had no standing, so the lower court opinion, striking down Prop 8, stands. In other words, it is now legal (again) for gay couples to get married in California.

Olson and Boies were on Colbert talking about their new book about the Prop 8 case, “Redeeming the Dream: The Case for Marriage Equality.” (If you buy the book, or shop more generally on Amazon, via these links, AMERICAblog gets a portion of the proceeds.)

Here’s Colbert on the gay marriage juggernaut, followed by his interview with Olson and Boies:
