Kimmel Flings Gay Barbs At Santorum, Gingrich At White House Correspondents Dinner

At the White House Correspondents Dinner last night in Washington, DC, host Jimmy Kimmel took some gay-friendly potshots at former GOP presidential contenders Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

Addressing Santorum’s opposition to marriage equality, Kimmel said, “it’s one thing to oppose gay marriage. It’s another all together to do it in a sweater vest.”

Kimmel teased Gingrich—the infamous serial adulterer who also opposed same-sex unions—about his weight: “How can you be against gay marriage when you yourself are the son of two gay parents? The Michelin [Man] and the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.”

The late-night talk-show host admitted he’s stumped why anyone would be against marriage equality, saying all marriages are essentially gay. “As a man, when you get married essentially what you’re saying is, “I will never touch another woman as long as I live. Now let’s put jewelry on each other and dance.’”

Even President Obama got in on the act when addressing his Administration’s work on repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell: “In my second term, we will replace it with a policy known as ‘It’s Raining Men.’”
