Republican presidential hopeful, Michele Bachmann, has made her fair amount of war cries against gay people, but comedian and actress Janeane Garofalo may have leveled the biggest attack of all on the group when she made the following accusation: Bachmann’s husband is gay.

That’s what Garofalo accused Marcus Bachmann of when she appeared on Current’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann Thursday.

Of course, she has no proof except for her apparent “gaydar” and her belief that many people who hold a similarly virulent anti-gay stance are usually fighting their own homosexual demons.

“I don’t like anyone that attacks the gay, lesbian, transgendered community anyway,” Garofalo tells Olbermann. “But especially one that seems to be, and this is not a criticism, he seems to be quite gay to me. That’s not a criticism and I’m sure the gay community would not like to claim him as one of their own.”

We’re sure that the gay community wouldn’t care to have him, especially as he doesn’t deny claims that his Christian counseling business’ services include “curing” clients of their homosexuality.

Watch the excerpt from Garafolo’s interview below.
