The Daily Show's John Oliver took apart Justice Antonin Scalia, the wingnut House Republicans and Sen. Rand Paul following their reaction to the Supreme Court's rulings on Prop 8 and DOMA this week.

The Daily Show's John Oliver took apart Antonin Scalia, the "justice whose name most resembles a GI Joe villain" for his rant following this week's rulings on DOMA and Prop 8, calling them “legalistic argle-bargle,” which as Oliver noted, might give Supreme Court scholars a tough time explaining in the future.

Oliver then turned to the Republican House members, who had their usual gang of wingnuts show up at a press conference to "share their feelings" about the rulings as well. After showing old "terror babies" Louie Gohmert quoting "wise man" King Solomon, Oliver reminded the audience that Solomon had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines.

Gohmert went on to complain about how the rulings are a "holy quintet who goes against the laws of nature and natures God," to which Oliver responded:

OLIVER: Really? If your brain... if your brain can’t process God’s creatures enjoying different kinds of sex, you don’t want to bring nature into this, because nature is where dogs hump each other in the face! In the face! That's nature. That's nature right there. That is all natural my friends, just as God intended.

In an attempt to "elevate the debate" Oliver said, "Enough of the House members. Let's hear from a United States Senator." Que Rand Paul with the bestiality talk and Oliver asking why their “definitely not perverted brains” go straight to animals.
