Colbert Gets One Right From Time to Time

I don't usually like the Colbert Report, well, the truth is I don't usually watch it. But this is classic. The send up of the anti-gay-marriage ad "The Gathering Storm" is wonderful. [Via the Examiner] The best line?
Remembering the Eliot Spitzer scandal, he added, "Why can't we go back to the good old days when marriage was between a man, a woman and an Emperor's Club hooker?"

I don't know which is more ridiculous, the original ad itself, or the fact that they spent 1.5 million on it.

Various folks have come up with responses to the original add. Some are bad. These two aren't bad.
