Justice Scalia's dissent on the Defense of Marriage Act was filled with snarky comments and mocked on Wednesday by The Daily Show.



"He firmly believes that it is inappropriate and arrogant for the court to strike down a decades old Congressional law," reported Samantha Bee from the steps of the Supreme Court.



"Really?" anchor John Oliver asked. "Didn't he just help overturn the Voting Rights Act of 1965, literally yesterday?"



"Well, like I said, this is a firmly held belief of Scalia's that he has held for... approximately 36 hours now."



"To be fair to him, Sam, that is hundreds and hundreds of minutes."

Meanwhile, after the Supreme Court ruled part of DOMA unconstitutional and overturned Proposition 8 in California, Stephen Colbert was left with so many unanswered questions.

"Because DOMA is dead," Colbert wondered on The Colbert Report, "my marriage, I think, is invalidated?"

"I think you're a lesbian now?"

"I'm married, why couldn't I defend Prop. 8?"



"Is there any way we are ever going to get the gay toothpaste back in the tube?"



"Is there any way we could turn the gay people and the black people against each other?"



Slate's Emily Bazelon attempts to explain everything.
