Sunday Funnies' prayers have been answered! Bryan Safi, our favorite satirist from InfoMania's That's Gay, has started doing hilarious mini-webisodes called "That's Gay Salutes", a very special series of salutes to our worst enemies!

In the first installment, Safi burns the Freedom Federation and Andrea "Stump-Loving" Lafferty (of the Traditional Values Coalition, a Southern Poverty Law Center certified Hate Group) for their insane rhetoric around the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

That's Gay salutes the no-brainers at the Freedom Federation, who oppose the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act based on a troubling mix of misinformation and old-fashioned ignorance, as video evidence from their own convention reveals.

If you missed it, be sure to check to check out my hilarious interview with Bryan Safi and be sure to check back for more of his videos! More Sunday Funnies, including Colbert & Jon Stewart, laughs after the jump!

Jon Stewart and the Daily Show took aim at "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", liberal activists, and Lindsey Graham in "Friendly Fire - Gaywatch Edition":

A liberal activist heckles Barack Obama, and a conservative protester questions Lindsey Graham's sexuality.

Colbert got fired up about the outing of Lindsey Graham (and in turns outs the Michelin Man), taking swipes at Republicans, Fox News, and even Sex and the City along the way:

The Word - Straight to Video
Lindsey Graham, save your good name and career by releasing a straight sex tape.

Colbert got so worked up about William Gheen and his conspiracy theory that Lindsey GRaham must be gay and being blackmailed to support immigration reform (yeah...) that he had to do a BONUS Word segement:

Safi forgets that it also protects gender identity. Unless he knows something we don't.

I noticed that too. I dropped him an email about it. While I'm sure it wasn't anything nefarious intended, I think it's extremely important to include "gender identity" when talking about ENDA. :)

I didn't suspect anything nefarious. It just seems to get lost if a law affects trans people or not while simultaneously claiming "LGBT". So it can become confusing when people claim "LGBT" but then only discuss LGB.

I completely agree. We need to make sure the language we use on these important laws is correct.

Gheen's a moron. Graham's gutting the CIR bill and he's not going to ever vote for it. It's like Snowe, et al, did on health care. Gheen should grow up.
