Michele Bachmann's husband put another notch in his anti-gay belt yesterday. Marcus Bachmann, whose Christian clinic urges patients to abandon homosexuality, had a memorable exchange with a gay-friendly Bachmann supporter (so they exist?) while stumping with Michele at an Iowa pizza restaurant, CNN reports. The supporter, Kathy Schnell, even held a sign that read "Gay-Friendly Iowan."

In the video, Schnell says: "I wonder if you're aware that 10% of the population is gay. And if you have 28 children, then 2.8 of those kids are very likely gay." Michele claims that's only "according to the Kinsey Report." Pipes in Marcus: "Your facts are wrong." "That's not valid?" asks Schnell. "No, it's not at all," says Marcus. "It's been a myth for many years." When Michele and Marcus move on to the next table, Schnell takes off her Bachmann sticker. (See why Marcus sends Jon Stewart's gaydar into the red—and one columnist says Marcus' critics are all hypocrites.)
