WATCH: Stephen Colbert Outraged by Harvey Milk Stamp

By Daniel Reynolds

Stephen Colbert is sour about the Harvey Milk stamp.

The faux conservative host of The Colbert Report ranted about the recent announcement of a forever stamp honoring the late gay political icon that will be released in May.

“A gay man on a stamp?” Colbert said incredulously about Milk, who will become the first openly gay elected official to be featured on a U.S. Postal Service stamp. “Anger!”

The 49-year-old political satirist, who was recently named heir to David Letterman as host of CBS's Late Show, said the stamp was yet another instance that the “gays are hell-bent on rubbing our noses in their lifestyle” and have “infiltrated another beloved institution,” the U.S. Postal Service. He declared that appearing on a stamp is a “prestigious honor traditionally reserved for our greatest presidents and regional songbirds.”

“Suddenly, if I want to mail something, I have to lick this guy's backside?” Cobert quipped. “No! No!"

“Make no mistake, folks — if it’s mail, I’m licking something.”
