Colbert Talks with S.F. Congresswoman


Stephen Colbert visited the U.S. Capitol to interview Congresswoman Jackie Speier for his "Better Know a District" segment. The congresswoman, who represents the 12th district, which includes much of San Francisco, answered questions about whether President Obama is being a "gay rights tease" and if being gay is curable through genetic engineering.

"Being gay is not a disease," responded Speier sternly. "It's a sexual orientation. So there is nothing to fix."
