Do you hear the people sing, singing the song of men and men? That’s the tune John Oliver was singing on “The Daily Show” when he discussed the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Prop 8 in a landmark decision on June 26.
“We did it. We did it,” Oliver tells his audience. “Well technically the Supreme Court did it. But we watched. We watched. We watched them do it.”
So what do same-sex couples have to look forward to now that they can marry normally like the rest of the United States? “For too long, only straight couples have been able to enjoy paying their taxes and learning that their spouse has been killed,” Oliver says. “You’re welcome, gay couples. You’re welcome.”
