John Oliver Blasts Republicans' DOMA Reaction (VIDEO)

The Supreme Court justices are not elected and they're certainly not God, so why are we letting them decide what is and is not constitutional? This seemed to be the main thrust of the Republican reaction to SCOTUS striking down DOMA and Prop 8 this week, and John Oliver was having none of it.

"The whole point of the Supreme Court is to keep us in check. Sometimes we as a nation make bad decisions." Oliver explained.

Oliver also took issue with the notion put forth by Congressman Louis Gohmert of Texas that the decision goes against nature. "The Daily Show" host quickly squashed that by showing exactly what nature's idea of sex is.

Moreover, he asked the most important question about anti-gay rights politicians of all, "What is it with these people and animals?"
