Colbert jokes that those who signed the petition to get Referendum 71 on the ballot belong to a minority of intolerance. He refers to the lawsuit that has reached the U.S. Supreme Court to keep those identities private.
"Folks we need to protect this persecuted minority," Colbert quips. "And the only way I can see to do that is for Washington residents to vote in favor of gay domestic partnerships, because then no one will care who signed this petition, and these people can stay in the closet that the gay people have abandoned."
