( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

tephen: WELCOME TO THE

REPORT.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

SIT DOWN, NATION.

NATION, I WANT YOU TO DO

SOMETHING FOR ME.

FOLKS, I WANT YOU TO HUG YOUR

DOORS AND LOCK YOUR LOVED ONES

BECAUSE AMERICA IS UNDER ATTACK

BY KNOWLEDGE.

WE NOW KNOW THAT THE N.S.A. IS

MIGHT BE SPYING ON US.

AND WE WILL HAVE FULL ME

COVERAGE ON THE IMPLICATIONS OF

THAT TOMORROW.

BUT TONIGHT WE FOCUS ON THE

LEAKER.

BEHOLD THE FACE OF EVIL.

HIS NAME IS EDWARD SNOWDEN, AND

HE'S AN EMPLOYEE OF DEFENSE

CONTRACTOR BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON

NAMEDDED, OF COURSE, AFTER OUR

DRUNKEST FOUNDING FATHER.

NOW, SNOWDEN HAS FLED TO A HONG

KONG HOTEL ROOM WHERE THE

MINIBAR HAS BEEN STOCKED WITH

"NOT POISON BRAND ACTUAL BEER."

YESTERDAY SNOWDEN SAT DOWN WITH

JOURNALIST GLEN GREENWALD TO

EXPLAIN HIMSELF.

>> I'VE BEEN A SYSTEMS ENGINEER,

SYSTEMS ADMINISTRATOR, SENIOR

ADVISOR FOR THE CENTRAL

INTELLIGENCE AGENCY, SOLUTIONS

CONSULTANT AND A

TELECOMMUNICATIONS INFORMATION

SYSTEMS OFFICER.

>> Stephen: THAT'S SMART.

YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR RESUME OUT

THERE BECAUSE I THINK YOU'RE

ABOUT TO GET A PINK SLIP FROM

THE SKY.

AND AFTER ADDING THAT HE SPEAKS

FRENCH AND CAN USE POWERPOINT,

SNOWDEN WENT INTO DETAIL ABOUT

THE N.S.A.'S EAVESDROPPING

PROGRAM.

>> THE N.S.A. SPECIFICALLY

TARGETS THE COMMUNICATIONS OF

ANYONE.

ANY ANALYST AT ANY TIME CAN

TARGET ANYONE.

SITTING AT MY DESK I CERTAINLY

HAD THE AUTHORITY TO WIRE TAP

ANYONE FROM YOU OR YOUR

ACCOUNTANT TO A FEDERAL JUDGE TO

EVEN THE PRESIDENT IF I HAD A

PERSONAL EMAIL.

>> Stephen: HOW HARD IS THAT?

DURING THE ELECTION I GOT EMAILS

FROM HIM FIVE TIMES A DAY.

FOLKS, SNOWDEN'S GOT THE PROGRAM

ALL WRONG.

ACCORDING TO DIRECTOR OF

NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE (CLAPS

TWICE) OOPS, SORRY.

SORRY.

(CLAPS TWICE) JAMES CLAPPER.

CLAPPER ASSURES US THE

EAVESDROPPING PROGRAM CANNOT BE

USED TO INTENTIONALLY TARGET ANY

U.S. CITIZEN.

JUST LIKE THE ACUVIBE SOFT TOUCH

PERSONAL MASSAGER IS FOR NECK

CRAMPS AND CANNOT BE USED TO

INTENTIONALLY TARGET ANYWHERE

ELSE.

OKAY?

THAT YOU CAN'T DO.

THAT IS UNDER PENALTY OF WOW.

FOLKS, I'LL TELL YOU, I MIGHT BE

THE ONLY ONE SAYING THIS BUT I

THINK I KNOW WHAT'S REALLY GOING

ON HERE.

THE GUARDIAN SAYS THAT SNOWDEN

HAD A VERY COMFORTABLE LIFE THAT

INCLUDED A SALARY OF ROUGHLY

$200,000 AND A GIRLFRIEND WITH

WHOM HE SHARED A HOME IN HAWAII.

NATION, I THINK THIS COULD BE

THE MOST PASSIVE AGGRESSIONIVE

BREAK-UP IN HISTORY.

"HONEY, OF COURSE I'M INTO YOU.

YES, I WANT CHILDREN.

BUT FIRST I JUST HAVE TO LEAK A

LITTLE INFORMATION ABOUT THE

N.S.A. AND HIDE OUT IN ASIA FOR

THE REST OF MY LIFE.

THIS ISN'T ABOUT US.

I'LL BE BACK AS SOON AS I'M SURE

I WON'T BE MURDERED BY THE HONG

KONG TRIADS."

WE WILL HAVE MORE ON THIS STORY

TOMORROW.

THOUGH ONE LAST THING ON THIS.

I DO FIND IT SUSPICIOUS THAT THE

SAME DAY THIS GUY FLEES TO HONG

KONG, THIS GUY FLEES TO JORDAN.

TO DIRECT A "SERIOUS MOVIE?"

YEAH, THAT'S BELIEVABLE.

AND DIG IT.

WHO'S HIS REPLACEMENT?

A FOREIGNER.

N.S.A., YOU'RE GOING TO WANT TO

KEEP YOUR EYE ON THIS GUY

BECAUSE HE IS SUSPICIOUS AND

VERY TALENTED.

NOW, FOLKS, I DON'T KNOW IF

ANYONE ELSE HAS NOTICED BUT

THINGS ARE PRETTY MESSED UP IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

WHETHER IT'S SYRIA, IRAN, LIBYA

EGYPT, IRAQ OR SYRIA AGAIN.

APPARENTLY NEW VIOLENCE BROKE

OUT WHILE I WAS LISTING THOSE

OTHER COUNTRIES.

AND IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO

CHOOSE WHICH MIDDLE EAST COUNTRY

I SHOULD COVER SO TONIGHT I TURN

TO A TIME-HONORED EDITORIAL

PROCESS: THE IMPLODING MUSLIM

COUNTRY OF THE WEEK BOOTH.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

WELCOME.

TO THE IMPLODING MUSLIM COUNTRY

OF THE WEEK BOOTH BROUGHT TO YOU

BY SABRA HUMMUS.

SERVE SABRA AT YOUR NEXT PARTY

AND YOUR GUESTS WILL BE CHANTING

"DEATH TO HUNGER."

NOW, I HAVE WRITTEN THE NAME OF

EVERY MIDDLE EASTERN COUNTRY ON

A DIFFERENT STRIP OF COLORED

PAPER FROM ALLERGY I CAN'T TO

ZEBRA-STAN.

I WILL GET INTO THE BOOTH AND

GRAB ONE AT RANDOM TO REPORT ON.

JIMMY, LET'S SERVE UP SOME BABA

GA-NEWS.

AND THE WINNER IS... THAT TOOK

WAY LONGER THAN IT WAS SUPPOSED

TO.

TURKEY!

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

YES, YES.

TURKEY.

JIM?

>> VIOLENT ANTIGOVERNMENT

PROTESTS HAVE EXPLODED

THROUGHOUT TURKEY.

>> DEMONSTRATORS SAY THE PRIME

MINISTER IS A DICTATOR AND THEY

WANT HIM TO RESIGN.

>> MORE THAN 400 PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN REPORTED HURT OVER THE LAST

WEEK.

>> THE STREETS OF SOME OF

TURKEY'S BIGGEST CITIES HAVE

BECOME BATTLEFIELDS.

POLICE TRIED TO PUSH BACK

PROTESTERS WITH WATER CANNONS.

THE AUTHORITIES FIRED TEAR GAS

INTO A CROWD OF THOUSANDS.

THIS STARTED OUT AS A SMALL

DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THE

DESTRUCTION OF AN ISTANBUL PARK

TO MAKE WAY FOR A SHOPPING MALL.

>> Stephen: WOW!

THAT IS THE WORST MALL-RELATED

VIOLENCE SINCE EVERY BLACK

FRIDAY SALE.

NOW IT TURNS OUT THIS WHOLE

BROUHAHA IS OVER MORE THAN JUST

SOME PARK.

IT'S OVER NATIONAL IDENTITY.

YOU SEE, FOR CENTURIES TURKEY

WAS AN OTTOMAN BACKWATER OF

CURVED SWORDS, DECORATIVE

FOOTSTOOL AND POUTERRED

SWEETMEATS.

THEN FIRST TURKISH PRESIDENT AND

KID IN PLAY TRIBUTE HEAD KE MALL

AT A TURK DRAGGED THE COUNTRY

WHIRLING AND DIRVISHING INTO THE

19th CENTURY BY ABOLISHING

THE SULTANATE, THE CALIPHATE AND

THE SHARIA COURTS, SOMETHING

TENNESSEE IS STILL TRYING TO DO.

THE PEOPLE SEEMED TO LIKE IT.

ATTA BOY ATATURK.

BUT THAT ALL CHANGED IN 2003

WITH THE ELECTION OF

CONSERVATIVE MUSLIM AND

AUTOCRATIC ANAGRAM RE-JEHP

TA-YEEP AIR-DOE-AHN.

THAT ANAGRAM, BY THE WAY, PRO

GAY CENTIPEDE RAY.

NOW, PRIME MINISTER CENTIPEDE

HERE HAS UPSET SOME ISTANBULEES

BY CALLING FOR WOMEN TO HAVE AT

LEAST THREE CHILDREN, SINGLE SEX

BEACHES AND NEW REGULATIONS ON

THE SALE OF ALCOHOL URGING

CITIZENS TO INSTEAD DRINK AYRAN,

A SALTY MIXTURE OF YOGURT AND

WATER.

BUT PLEASE GO EASY OR YOU WILL

END UP WITH A NASTY CASE OF

YOGURT GOGGLES AND WAKE UP NEXT

NATION, I FEEL SO TORN.

ON THE ONE HAND I'M A FAN OF

AUTHORITARIANS.

ON THE OTHER HAND (WHISPERS)

HE'S A MUSLIM.

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO THINK?

HERE TO TELL ME WHAT I'M

SUPPOSED TO THINK IS THE

PROFESSOR AT THE NATIONAL WAR

COLLEGE, OMER TASPINAR.

PROFESSOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING ME.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US FROM

THE WAR COLLEGE.

>> THANK YOU.

Stephen: HOME OF THE FIGHTIN'

WARS.

NOW LET'S TALK TURKEY, ALL

RIGHT?

WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IS DO

THEY HAVE A DEMOCRACY THERE?

>> IT IS IS PROBABLY.

Stephen: PROBABLY?

YOU'RE AN EXPERT.

IT'S PROBABLY.

IT'S LIKE A COIN TOSS ON A

DAY-TO-DAY BASIS.

>> THERE'S A DEBATE BECAUSE

HERE'S IS A DEMOCRATIC ELECTED

LEADERS.

ERDOGAN IS DEMOCRATICALLY

ELECTED.

IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD IT IS AS

DEMOCRATIC AS IT GETS.

>> Stephen: PRIME MINISTER

CENTIPEDE, WHAT IS GOING ON

HERE?

HOW DID HE GET THESE PEOPLE SO

MAD?

IT CAN'T BE JUST OVER A MALL,

RIGHT.

>> THERE IS A BIG SEGMENT OF OF

TURKEY INCREASINGLY FRUSTRATED

WITH HIS AUTHORITARIAN

TENDENCIES.

HE CONTROLS BASICALLY

COMMERCIALS.

>> Stephen: IT'S LIKE A REALLY

GREAT PLACE TO GO HAVE FUN.

>> TELL ME ABOUT IT.

Stephen: WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO

TELL YOU?

>> PLEASE.

Stephen: BUT WHY IS... I

DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IS THE

PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY MAKING

DECISIONS ABOUT WHAT TO DO WITH

TRAFFIC PATTERNS AND LIKE WHERE

THE MALL GOES?

THAT WOULD BE LIKE BARACK OBAMA

SAYING, "WE NEED A LEFT TURN

LANE PAST THE ARBY'S ON MAPLE

STREET."

WHY IS HE MICROMANAGING LIKE

THIS?

>> PARTIALLY BECAUSE HE'S A

CONTROL FREAK.

HE LIKES TO CONTROL THINGS.

HE LIKES TO BASICALLY TELL HIS

CONSERVATIVE BASE THAT HE'S

DOING HIS UPMOST TO HAVE A

CONSERVATIVE AGENDA.

>> WHERE IS HIS POWER BASE?

IF NOT ISTANBUL, WHERE IS IT?

>> THE PROVINCES IN THE HEART

LAND CONSERVATIVE RELIGIOUS

MASSES URBAN POOR.

>> Stephen: BASICALLY YOU HAVE

THIS CONSERVATIVE, THE PROVINCES

AND THE HARTLAND VERSUS THE

LIBERAL...

>> UPPER CLASS.

Stephen: IT'S LIKE AMERICA

BUT WITH BETTER KEBABS?

>> I COULDN'T SAY IT BETTER.

Stephen: ALL RIGHT.

HOW DID THIS ULTIMATELY SHAKE

OUT?

LET ME TRANSLATE THAT FOR YOU?

WHEN CAN I STOP CARING ABOUT

TURKEY AGAIN?

>> I THINK IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS

WE'LL SEE CONTINUING

POLARIZATION.

IT JUST CALLED ON ITS SUPPORTERS

TO HAVE A BIG RALLY NEXT WEEK IN

ISTANBUL.

DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU SEE

ONE MILLION ERDOGAN SUPPORTERS

IN THE STREETS.

>> Stephen: REALLY?

I WOULD BE VERY SURPRISED.

PROFESSOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING ME.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

WE'

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NATION, YOU KNOW, THEY SAY THE

COLD WAR ENDED IN 1989 BUT THEY

ALSO SAID RAT-TAILS WERE OVER.

THEN WHY DOES "THIS BABY" FEEL

SO RIGHT?

THIS IS COLD WAR UPDATE.

NATION, THE KEY TO DEFEATING OUR

COMMIE ENEMIES HAS ALWAYS BEEN

ETERNAL READINESS TO LAUNCH OUR

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

BUT SADLY WE MAY NO LONGER BE

READY TO SAVE THE WORLD BY

DESTROYING IT.

>> TALK ABOUT A MORALE ISSUE

WHERE YOU DON'T REAL HE'LL WANT

ONE.

EMAILS OBTAINED BY THE A.P. SHOW

THAT SOME MILITARY OFFICERS WHO

ARE IN CHARGE OF THE AIR FORCE'S

MOST POWERFUL NUCLEAR WEAPONS

ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT THEIR

JOBS.

>> Stephen: COMPLAINING?

NUCLEAR LAUNCH OFFICER IS IS THE

COOLEST JOB EVER.

NOW IF A GIRL SAYS SHE WOULDN'T

SLEEP WITH YOU IF YOU WERE THE

LAST MAN ON EARTH, YOU CAN CALL

HER BLUFF.

I WOULD LOVE TO BE IN YOUR PLACE

STANDING 24-HOUR WATCH OVER

NUCLEAR MISSILES ALERT AT ALL

TIMES, READY TO LAUNCH UPON

PRESIDENTIAL ORDER.

BUT INSTEAD OF FEELING HONORED

BY THEIR MONUMENTAL DUTY, THESE

OFFICERS ARE WHINING ABOUT BEING

STUCK IN DEAD-END CAREERS.

OH, COME ON!

YOU HAVE TONS OF TRANSFERABLE

SKILLS.

YEARS OF SITTING IN A CHAIR IN A

CONSTANT STATE OF PARANOIA WOULD

MAKE YOU PERFECT ANCHORS FOR FOX

NEWS.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

GOT A LOT OF FOX NEWS FANS

TONIGHT.

AND THIS ISN'T THE FIRST

INCIDENT UNDERMINING OUR NUCLEAR

READINESS, FOLKS.

LAST MONTH, THE SAME LAUNCH

CREWS EARNED A D-GRADE ON THEIR

MASTERY OF MISSILE LAUNCH

OPERATIONS.

A D-GRADE?

COME ON.

WE ARE FIGHTING THE CHINESE

HERE.

YOU KNOW THEIR CREWS ARE GOING

TO EARN STRAIGHT...

I WANT TO SAY, A BOOK SHELF ON

TOP OF A CHRISTMAS TREE.

WELL, FOLKS, TO TELL YOU WHAT,

TO HELP PUMP UP THE NEXT

GENERATION FOR A REWARDING

CAREER IN NUCLEAR SERVICE, I

HAVE DEVELOPED AN EXCITING NEW

VIDEO GAME: "CALL OF DUTY:

PADDED CHAIR."

IT'S A FIRST-PERSON SITTER, AND

IT CAPTURES ALL THE EXCITEMENT

OF THE REAL THING.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SIT

PERFECTLY STILL NOT PUSHING A

BIG, BEAUTIFUL, SHINY, JOLLY

BUTTON, THE RED, CANDY-LIKE

BUTTON.

JUST BEGGING TO BE LAUNCHED.

[BLEEP].

OH, WELL.

YOU CAN PLAY AGAIN IN 100,000

YEARS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

MY GUEST TONIGHT HAS A NEW BOOK

"AMERICAN SAVAGE: INSIGHTS,

SLIGHTS AND FIGHTS ON FAITH,

SEX, LOVE AND POLITICS."

IT IS BEING SOLD IN EVERY

SECTION AT BARNES AND NOBLE.

PLEASE WELCOME DAN SAVAGE.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

GOOD TO SEE YOU, DAN.

NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

ALWAYS LIKE HAVING YOU ON, DAN.

FREQUENT FRIEND OF THE SHOW.

YOUR NEW BOOK IS CALL "AMERICAN

SAVAGE."

OKAY.

IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE YOU WERE

ON THE SHOW.

STILL GAY?

>> STILL GAY.

tephen: BECAUSE YOU NEVER

KNOW.

IT'S A FREE COUNTRY.

>> DOESN'T WASH OFF IN THE RAIN.

Stephen: I KNOW, BUT THE DOOR

IS ALWAYS OPEN.

>> LIKEWISE.

Stephen: I UNDERSTAND THAT.

BUT I'M STRAPPED IN WHERE I AM.

THANK YOU.

I'M STAYING ON MY LITTLE...

>> USUALLY IT'S THE LESBIANS WHO

STRAP IN.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: WELL, SAFETY FIRST.

THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

NOW THE SUPREME COURT IS GOING

TO BE HANDING DOWN RULINGS...

>> TWO RULINGS.

Stephen: TWO RULINGS.

ONE ON DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT.

THE OTHER ONE ON PROP 8 SAYING

NO GAY MARRIAGE IN CALIFORNIA.

>> RIGHT.

SO THE DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT

WAS PASSED IN THE '90s.

BILL CLINTON SIGNED IT.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL NOT

RECOGNIZE SAME-SEX MARRIAGES

PERFORMED IN STATES WHERE IT

MIGHT BE LEGAL.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME EVER THAT

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS

REALLY USURPED THIS POWER FROM

THE STATES AND SAID WE WILL PICK

AND CHOOSE BETWEEN MARRIAGES.

FIRST COUSINS CAN MARRY IN SOME

STATES NOT IN OTHERS.

>> Stephen: SOUTH CAROLINA.

PEOPLE ARE LEGALLY MARRIED IN

THE STATE WHERE I LIVE,

WASHINGTON STATE.

TERRY AND I ARE LEGALLY MARRIED

IN WASHINGTON STRAIGHT.

THEIR MARRIAGES ARE RECOGNIZED

BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

OURS IS NOT.

THAT HAS REAL-WORLD IMLIKS

AROUND INHERITANCE, TAXES AND

SOCIAL SECURITY.

CERTAINLY AROUND TAXES.

WE HAVE A HUGE TAX BILL BECAUSE

WE CANNOT FILE JOINTLY BECAUSE

WE ARE NOT MARRIED.

>> Stephen: YEAH, YOU'RE NOT.

YOU'RE NOT.

>> WE ARE.

WE'RE JUST AS MARRIED AS OUR

NEIGHBORS BUT THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT WOULDN'T RECOGNIZE OR

MARRIAGE.

>> Stephen: I'M MARRIED TO A

LADY.

THERE'S A NAME FOR IT.

IT'S CALLED MARRIAGE.

PERHAPS YOU'VE HEARD OF IT.

>> MY MARRIAGE IS JUST AS

MARRIAGE AS YOUR MARRIAGE IS.

>> Stephen: YOU'RE MARRIED TO A

GUY.

DON'T EAR FLAP, OKAY.

IT'S LIKE TWO MAGNETS.

YOU HAVE TWO POSITIVE ENDS.

>> YOU TURN ONE OF THOSE MAGNETS

AROUND AND IT FITS RIGHT IN.

>> Stephen: IF YOU'RE GOING TO

MAKE EVERYTHING ABOUT SEX.

>> YOU'RE MAKING EVERYTHING

ABOUT SEX.

>> Stephen: I'M SAD.

YOU ARE MAKING MARRIAGE ABOUT

SEX WHEN YOU SAY THAT TWO MEN

CANNOT BE MARRIED.

THE SERIOUS POINT THOUGH IS THAT

IT IS NOT GAY PEOPLE WHO WISH TO

REDEFINE MARRIAGE.

HETEROSEXUALS REDEFINE MARRIAGE.

EVERYTHING WE HEAR THAT IS A

DEFINING CHARACTERISTIC OF

MARRIAGE WHEN GAY PEOPLE WANT TO

MARRIAGE, MONNING ON KNEE,

RELIGION, CHILDREN.

IT'S AS IF STRAIGHT PEOPLE ARE

SAYING YOU GUYS HAVE TO GET

MARRIED IN 1913.

WE'RE GETTING MARRIED IN 2013.

>> Stephen: MAYBE IT'S A

COMPLIMENT.

MAYBE WE THINK WE CAN HOLE YOU

TO A HIRE STANDARD.

>> WE ARE BETTER THAN YOU.

WE WANT EQUAL RIGHTS NOT DOUBLE

STANDARDS.

>> Stephen: NOW LISTEN...

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

THANK YOU.

I'VE GOT TO SAY, I DO THINK I

HANDLED THAT WELL.

THANK YOU.

>> WE'RE NOT BETTER THAN YOU.

THAT WAS JUST THE HEAT OF THE

MOMENT.

>> Stephen: WE'LL EDIT OUT YOUR

POLICY.

NOW YOU WRITE ABOUT THINGS THAT

ARE NOT GAY RIGHTS IN THIS BOOK.

OBAMA CARE, CATHOLICISM,

PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED SUICIDE.

WHY DO YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO TALK

ABOUT THOSE THINGS?

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT GAY PEOPLE

AND THOSE THINGS, RIGHT.

>> I'M TALKING ABOUT OBAMA CARE

GENERALLY.

I'M A LIBERAL.

I'M A PROGRESSIVE BUT I

DESCRIBE... YOU WOULD DELIGHT IN

THIS.

I DESCRIBE OBAMA CARE IN THIS

BOOK AS EVIL.

>> Stephen: OH, GOD BLESS YOU.

IT'S THE LESSER OF TWO EVIL.

THE SYSTEM WE HAD BEFORE PRIOR

TO OBAMA CARE IS MORE EVIL, BUT

OBAMA CARE IS STILL A LITTLE

EVIL.

IT IS A CONSERVATIVE PLOT, PLAN

HATCHED BY THE HERITAGE

FOUNDATION ORIGINALLY ADOPTED BY

MITT ROMNEY IN MASSACHUSETTS.

BECAUSE OBAMA ROLLED IT OUT ALL

LIBERALS BECAME EMOTIONALLY

INVESTED IN THIS CONSERVATIVE

PLAN FOR HEALTH CARE WHICH WAS

TO EXTEND PRIVATE HEALTH

INSURANCE AND SUBSIDIZE IT AS

OPPOSED TO SWITCHING TO A SINGLE

PAYOR MODEL LIKE EVERY OTHER

INDUSTRIALIZED NATION.

YOU KNOW WHO HAS THIS SINGLE

PAYOR MODEL?

VATICAN CITY.

>> Stephen: THIS IS IT RIGHT

THERE.

>> IT COVERS EVERYTHING BUT

BIRTH CONTROL BECAUSE ALTAR BOYS

CAN'T GET PREGNANT.

WHEN ALTAR BOYS START GETTING

PREGNANT THEY'LL COVER BIRTH

CONTROL TOO.

>> Stephen: WE'RE GOING TO GLOSS

OVER THAT FOR JUST A MOMENT.

>> AS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS

DONE FOR DECADES.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: DAN, THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR JOINING ME.

DAN SAVAGE.

THE BOOK IS "AMERICAN SAVAGE."

GO GET IT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: THAT'S IT FOR THE

REPORT, EVERYBODY.

GOOD NIGHT.
