The Daily Show's Most Immature Montage Ever and More... [VIDEO]

In this hilarious summation of the Gay Rights debate the Democrats recently had on Logo, Jon Stewart uses a great metaphor for the dance Democrats must engage in on the marriage issue. All of the candidates participating except for Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich, oppose equal marriage rights for homosexuals but still want to be considered strong on gay rights. Stewart compares it to golf, and while Obama manages to reach the green. On the other hand, Richardson, who said being gay "was a choice", bombed. Richardson later claimed he bungled the question because he was jetlagged. Stewart's retort: "He'd just flown in from the 1950s". Check out the video for this and for what Stewart calls "The Daily Show's Most Immature Montage Ever".
