Last night’s The Daily Show took on Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s (R-MN) anti-gay views and the ex-gay therapy practiced in her husband’s clinic. Jon Stewart suggested that Marcus Bachmann prescribed “Ibstraightphen,” “Nohomotrin,” and “Heteron,” for patients who wished to change their sexual orientation. Then, when tempted to make fun of Bachmann’s dancing as being “an Izod shirt away from the gay character on Modern Family,” comedian Jerry Seinfield appeared to offer Stewart “ex-comic therapy.”
