(Newser) – Jon Stewart nearly explodes on the Daily Show last night holding in a flood of zingers he'd like to deliver about the apparent sexual orientation of Michele Bachmann's seemingly self-hating gay-bashing husband Marcus. But he holds his tongue as best he can, finally spilling that the mister has apparently "absorbed" all the gayness his "Christian counseling" therapy clinic is reportedly trying to eradicate. Then he runs a clip of a dancing Marcus, remarking that he's an "Izod shirt away from the gay character on Modern Family."

Still, Stewart struggles mightily not to "ridicule" Bachmann for his "seeming hypocrisy," even though his clinic therapy is "doing real damage to real people." He then runs a clip of Bachmann calling gays "barbarians" who "need to be disciplined." OK, OK, Stewart finally dishes as he flashes a scene from Hollywood Squares: "He dances and sounds not only gay, but center-square gay."
