Colbert dices Buck on the gays: ‘He can’t help it; he was born that way’
The U.S. media has largely embraced homosexuality as a naturally occurring healthy variation of human sexuality, which makes Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck fodder for television comedy. Buck’s now infamous Meet the Press comments– in which he said gayness was a lifestyle choice and that gays may have a genetic predisposition to same sex attraction, kinda like alcoholism– made it onto Comedy Central’s Colbert Report Monday night.
“Yes, being gay is like alcoholism: Too much and you have a problem. But there’s nothing wrong with social gayness. I mean gay in moderation…. and I don’t want any liberals going after [Buck] for being a politically opportunistic gay baiter… [He] can’t help it; [he] was born that way!”
