Last night, Jon Stewart dedicated the entire opening of The Daily Show to the Chick-fil-A controversy. He ended the segment by concluding that the end result might be a win-win:

STEWART: For people who are gay or support gay marriage, I get how seeing thousands of people come out to make this statement is incredibly disheartening, but take solace in this: Gay marriage is happening. Like many drive-through window lanes, it ain’t going backwards. And your bonus is this: You get gay marriage, and all your political opponents are going to get is Type 2 Diabetes. Here’s my prediction: In ten years, America will have a lot more gay marriage and a lot more Chick-fil-A restaurants because they are both quality products.
