Media Fawn Over 'Groundbreaking' Gay Wedding on Late Night Comedy Show
The Culture and Media Institute ^ | 11/4/2011 | Erin R. Brown

"Groundbreaking." "Memorable." "Big." "Remarkable." "Intimate." [?] "Wonderful." "Great." "History-making." "Go Coco!"

The above statements were made by various media outlets upon learning of Conan O'Brien's intention to preside over the wedding of a gay couple during the taping of his show "Conan" in New York this week.

O'Brien, who is celebrating his first year at TBS, is back in New York this week (for 16 years his previous show, "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" was filmed in New York City). He announced last week that he was going to officiate a gay wedding because same-sex marriages are now legal in New York. The funnyman obtained an online certificate from Universal Life Church Monastery and on Thursday, Nov. 3, married his long time costume designer Scott Cronick to his Cronick's partner in a traditional Jewish ceremony.

Let the media cheerleading begin.

Maybe he’s officiating this facade of a ceremony to demonstrate his disdain for gay marriage. After all, it is a comedy bit.

It will be hard to top the wedding of Tiny Tim and Miss Vicky, that was pretty gay

Ack, I'm a Reverend from Universal Life Church Monastery in 1998. It's a website, you became a Reverend by filling out a form. The guy running it died a long time ago. I didn't know it was still going. I wouldn't exactly trust their credentials to marry anyone.

Conan has been on for 16 years, and here I've never seen a show.

You got that right. Actually I have stopped watching any of the late night so-called comedian shows, because none of them are that funny, especially in the last 6-7 years when their rabid fawning & shilling for the socialist RAT bastard demoRAT party has become so blatant. None of them are funny any longer. However of all the late night commedians, Conan was the worst IMO. He was the most unfunny, stupid humor comedian of all.

There is also going to be underage gay sex on GLEE this week I hear. Not that I’d watch that drivel.

We have a winner!
I thought of Tiny Tim's carnival show wedding to Miss Vicki on the Tonight Show hosted by the late great Johnny Carson as soon as I read this article but didn't consider how so very gay it actually was until you mentioned it.

Since NBC retained rights to the Masturbating Bear, Conan just invited Andrew Sullivan instead.

Turning into another Jerry Springer Show?

Sex deviates, sluts, tramps, dopers, and every other bottom-of-the-gene-pool attraction to the type of people who are "viewers".

The State-Run-Media promotes whatever needs to be attracting the Democrat voterbase.....

It’s just about love. What a wonderful ceremony. Then, they’ll take turns putting their penis in each other’s mouth and drop their pants while Conan watches one guy put his penis into the anal canal of the other on tv. How quaint. Homosexuality - it’s just partner-assisted masturbation.

Almost as “groundbreaking” as the wedding of Tiny Tim and Miss Vicki.
