Colbert Wades into Referendum 71


Comedian Stephen Colbert ventured into the debate surrounding Referendum 71 in Washington State on Monday, pursuing the logic of domestic-partnership opponents to its absurd conclusions.

On The Colbert Report, he discussed the legal battle over whether to disclose the names of those who signed the petition to put Referendum 71 on the ballot. Referendum 71 asks voters whether they want to confirm or reject the state legislature's expansion of domestic-partner rights.

"I believe you're born thinking gays don't have the right to get married or even be joined in union," he said. "And folks, the gays have no rights to out those people."
