Stephen Colbert took a few moments to comment on Friday's Supreme Court same sex marriage ruling, sparing no quarter to Justice Antonin Scalia.

Colbert began with a general congratulations to gay people everywhere, saying, “Wow, history moves fast. It’s hard to believes that gays achieved full constitutional personhood just five years after corporations did.”

And with a completely different set of justices, save Justice Kennedy. Colbert didn't spare the dissenters at all.

Beginning with Justice Roberts, he warned gay people they might get congratulations from him that read, "You guys are perfect for each other — and a cancer on our democracy."

He then moved on to Justice Scalia, who opened his dissent by complaining that any majority opinion that began the way Kennedy's did would cause him to "hide his head in a bag."

Colbert answered that by saying, "That's funny. I could’ve sworn he was already hiding his head in a flesh-toned cinch sack."

He then asked Scalia to come appear on his show. (As if...)

Happy Pride Weekend, all!
