Jon Stewart wrapped the year tonight with an excited look ahead at the Supreme Court now getting a chance to rule on marriage, because as everyone knows, “marriage is under attack.” And after years and years of federal and state bans on gay marriage, the high court will finally take on the civil rights issue. And for the moment, as Stewart phrased it, “shit just got real.” Stewart said it’s “hard to overstate” how big a deal this is for gay marriage, and in reaction to one reporter predicting this could be a “Roe v. Wade for gay rights,” found some sense of relief, because who argues about abortion anymore?
