Conservative blogger and gay activist Andrew Sullivan visited “The Colbert Report” to discuss the GOP’s double standard when it comes to homosexuality: “In Washington, all the Republicans are perfectly gay-friendly. They’re staffed by gay people, they’re okay with gay people, I mean the vice president’s daughter is an open lesbian.”

When Colbert asked Sullivan if Republicans were going to start outing gays within the party, he responded: “I think there’s a beginning of a moment when they can’t keep the current facade going. They can’t pretend to be tolerant in private, and intolerant in public. They’re either going to have to purge all the gays from the Republican Party or they’re going to start having to behave like grown-ups and treat us like human beings. It’s one or the other. They can’t keep this balance going.”
