Support in the Senate for same-sex marriage signals an historic shift in public opinion, and promises the most boring gay pride parade float ever. (5:22)

>> Jon: WE WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW.

THIS WEEK THE SUPREME COURT IS HEARING TWO LANDMARK CASES ABOUT GAY MARRIAGE.

WE'LL HAVE BIG COVERAGE TOMORROW BUT THE DISCUSSION IS TAKING PLACE, THE LEVEL OF DISCOURSE WE

HAVE COME TO EXPECT FROM THE NATION'S HIGHEST COURT.

>> DO YOU WANT US TO STEP IN AND RENDER A DECISION BASED ON AN ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFECTS OF

THIS INSTITUTION WHICH IS NEWER THAN CELL PHONES OR THE INTERNET?

>> Jon: YES.

EVERYONE KNOWS LOVE IS A NEW INVENTION.

I THINK IT GOES MICROWAVES, CELL PHONES, THEN LOVE THEN GOGURT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OF COURSE THE DECISION WILL COME AT A TIME WHEN PUBLIC OPINION IS RAPIDLY SWINGING IN FAVOR OF GAY MARRIAGE.

THERE'S BEEN AN AVALANCHE OF GOOD NEWS FOR SUPPORTS.

>> SENATOR CLAIRE McCASS KILL OF MISSOURI ANNOUNCED HER SUPPORT.

>> SENATOR JOHN TESTER.

THREE MORE SENATORS HAVE VOICED THEIR PORN, MARK WARNER, JAY ROCKEFELLER AND SENATOR MARK BEGICH.

>> Jon: IT HAS ALL THE MAKINGS OF THE HISTORIC SHIFT IN PUBLIC OPINION AND THE MOST BORING GAY

PRIDE PARADE FLOAT EVER.

WHAT SEEMS TO HAVE TRIGGERED THIS WAVE OF MIND CHANGING WAS ONE BRAVE SENATOR'S ANNOUNCEMENT

LAST WEEK.

>> GAY MARRIAGE HAS PICKED UP A PROMINENT NEW SUPPORTER, SENATOR ROB PORTMAN OF OHIO.

THE ONLY REPUBLICAN IN THE U.S.

SENATE TO TAKE THAT POSITION.

>> Jon: BRAVO ROB PORTMAN.

I ASSUME SENATOR PORTMAN THOUGHT LONG AND HARD ABOUT THIS AND REALIZED IT'S PURELY ON THE

PRINCIPLE OF THE ISSUE HE NEEDS TO STAND UP FOR FAIRNESS AND EQUAL QUIT.

>> HE CHANGED HIS CHANGE OF HEART.

HE SAID IT BEGAN TWO YEARS AGO AGO WHEN HIS COLLEGE AGED SON TOLD HIS FAMILY THAT HE IS GAY.

>> Jon: THAT WOULD DO IT, TOO.

I NEVER REALIZED A HUMAN BEING COULD ACTUALLY BE GAY UNTIL MY WIFE AND I ACCIDENTALLY MADE ONE.

NOT ALL HIS REPUBLICANS ARE SO EASILY SWAYED.

>> SENATOR SAX BY CHAMBLISS IS REAFFIRMING HIS OPPOSITION TO GAY MARRIAGE HE SAID "I'M NOT GAY.

I'M NOT GOING TO MARRY ONE."

>> Jon: I DIDN'T REALIZE YOU COULD SOANL SUPPORT IT IF YOU WERE GOING TO MARRY WHO YOU ARE LIKE.

I WISH HIM LUCK FINDING A (bleep) TO MARRY.

>> ANOTHER BIG VOICE ENDORSED GAY MARRIAGE.

FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON.

>> Jon: HILLARY CLINTON.

DIDN'T SHE DO THAT 20 YEARS AGO?

IS THERE ANY ELSE YOU ARE IN FAVOR OF YOU ARE STUL MULLING OVER.

HILLARY CLINTON AS CHANGED HER MIND.

ALBANIANS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO DRIVE.

[LAUGHTER]

SAX BY CHAMBLISS MAY NOT GET WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE EXCLUDE BUT I'M GUESSING HILLARY CLINTON HAS

FACED HER SHARE OF DISCRIMINATION.

HOW DID IT TAKE TO LONG AND HOW IS THIS GUY NOT THERE?

>> JUST BECAUSE I BELIEVE STATES SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFINE MARRIAGE IN A TRADITIONAL WAY

DOES NOT MAKE ME A BIGOT.

>> Jon: OKAY.

FIRST OF ALL.

UM, IS THERE A TIME WHEN THIS GUY DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE DESPERATELY THIRSTY?

I FEEL LIKE HE MUST HAVE A PRESPEECH RITUAL WHERE HE LICK PRISCUTTO.

HE HAS A MADE.

BELIEVING IT SHOULD BE LEFT TO THE STATE DOESN'T MAKE YOU A BIGOT BUT BELIEVING THE STATES

SHOULD DEFINE IT AS TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE THAT DOES.

LET'S TURN TO THE NEW RISING STAR DR. BEN CARSON.

>> MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN.

NO GROUP BE THEY GAYS, BE THEY NAMBLA, BE THEY PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN BESTIALITY.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THEY ARE.

>> Jon: LET ME STOP YOU RIGHT THERE IT'S NOT WHETHER YOU ARE HAVING SEX WITH A CONSENTING

ADULT OR A HORSE OR A DOUGHNUT.

IT'S ALL THE SAME.

THAT'S NOT FAIR.

HE'S FINE.

HIS PROBLEM ISN'T WITH GAY PEOPLE.

>> IT'S NOT SOMETHING AGAINST GAYS, IT'S AGAINST ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO COME ALONG AND CHANGE

THE FUNDAMENTAL DEFINITIONS OF PILLARS EVER SOCIETY.

>> Jon: YOU THINK WE SHOULDN'T MESS WITH ANYTHING THAT IS A FUNDAMENTAL PILLAR OF SOCIETY.

BLACK NEUROSURGEON WHO DOES PROUDLY STAND IN FRONT OF A MEDICAL SCHOOL, THE ROAD TO THAT

SCHOOL IS BROKEN PILLAR PARTS LABORED SLAVERY, SEGREGATION AND JIM-CROW AND THERE'S A GAY SAD

LOOKING NEARBY AND IN TACT PILLAR THAT SAYS TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE AND A THOUGHT BUBBLE

THAT SAYS LITTLE HELP?

LET ME SHOW YOU.

THAT'S JUST UM, I DREW THIS IS --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

ANYWAY THAT IS MY IDEA FOR THE EDITORIAL CARTOON.

THIS IS JUST A PENIS CANNON SHOOTING AN AIRPLANE BECAUSE IT'S ALL I REALLY KNOW HOW TO DRAW.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
