Last night, Stephen Colbert interviewed Salon's sexiest man, Chris Kluwe, the Vikings punter who penned an epic letter blasting Maryland politician Emmet C. Burns Jr. over the pol's desire to suppress a Baltimore Ravens player's vocal defense of gay marriage. Explaining his stance last night, Kluwe said, "I firmly believe that people are people, and [gay people] deserve to be treated the same as everyone else."
