Stephen Colbert sat by as gay rights were confirmed in Iowa
and
Vermont
,
but now that Governor David Paterson has introduced legislation to
legalize gay marriage in his homestate of New York, he has formed the
Colbert Coalition to defend the “traditional definition of marriage.” Taking his cues from the

parody-inducing “Gathering Storm” ad
put out by the National
Organization for Marriage, Stephan Colbert promises he “won’t let them
make you retroactively gay.” Phew.
