When listening to the debate back and forth about gay marriage, it’s easy to take cheap shots at the homophobe with three teeth who’s afraid to catch “teh gay.” It’s easy to dismiss those types and assume that anyone who is fervently anti-gay marriage is dumb, or a religious nut, or crazy. Rarely do you see two people sit down and debate the issue intelligently, without yelling, without hysterics, without name calling, without needing a referee.
But last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart and Mike Huckabee did just that. Mike Huckabee is not stupid. He is definitely religious, but since I have a lot of religious friends who are way smarter than me, that doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s a nut (although a lot of evidence points that way). Two intelligent, successful, well-spoken people had a debate about gay marriage.
Jon Stewart still wiped the floor with Governor Huckabee, though. When you play your A game and still lose, it’s time to get out of the game.
