Jon Stewart vs Bill Bennett

While I was watching Ann Coulter flop around on Tucker Carlson, Jon Stewart was taking Bill Bennett to the woodshed over gay marriage.

Crooks and Liars has the video.

Jon Stewart brought up a very good point. Whenever someone brings up the so-called slippery slope that takes us down the road to polygamy, why not talk about what happens when the slippery slope goes the other way? Using this reasoning, why wouldn't the government have a compelling interest in regulating marriage via anti-misceganation laws?

Bennett did not have an answer beyond the typical toddler response of just because.
