The Best Late Night Clips of the Week (VIDEO/PHOTOS)

This week was bookended by two major victories. First, late Friday night, marriage equality passed in New York, with props to Governor Cuomo and without the help of President Obama. Then, last night, Glenn Beck officially ended his downward spiral of a TV show on Fox News, working a pointed challenge to Jon Stewart into one of the final segments.

In between, Michele Bachmann officially announced her candidacy for the third time, quickly following that up by invoking the spirit of John Wayne Gacy. And Obama was kind of a "dick" to Congress in his budget speech.

All this and more helped fuel this week's late night talk shows. Below are my favorite clips of the week. What were yours?
