Jon Stewart Thinks Michele Bachmann's Husband Is Gay

Jon Stewart: Michele Bachmann's Husband Is an Izod Shirt Away From the Gay Character on Modern Family

Jon Stewart went there last night, calling out Michele Bachmann's husband, Marcus Bachmann, for setting off some people's gaydar. Like his presidential candidate wife, who has made controversial statements about gay people, Christian therapist Marcus thinks being gay can be cured and has been accused of practicing "pray the gay away" therapy. But after consulting clips of Marcus dancing and speaking with an arguably effeminate voice, Jon wondered if Marcus was "curing them so he can hoard all the gayness for himself." According to Jon, Marcus is an "Izod shirt away from being the gay character on Modern Family."

Jon knows it's probably unfair to hint at Marcus's hypocritical homosexuality with no more evidence than the presence of gay stereotypes, but he can't seem to help himself. Later in the program he brings out Jerry Seinfeld to help "cure" him of his gay jokes. Check out the clip of Jon examining the evidence of Marcus's potential gayness and tell me in the comments, do you think Jon went too far or is he dead-on?

If Marcus Bachmann is going as far as referring to gays and lesbians as "barbarians," then this is all fair game.

I think 1) because Congresswoman Bachmann has had so many negative comments about gay people, and 2) because her husband has said negative things about gays and may have engaged in the controversial therapy while receiving government funds for his clinic, and 3) because the Congresswoman is spotlighting social issues in her presidential campaign, the couple has opened itself to scrutiny and comment.
