It’s not surprising considering all the backlash, but Republican hopeful Michele Bachmann‘s husband, Marcus, is now insisting that he isn’t as anti-gay as he seems.
A recent report showed how a counselor at the Bachmanns’ clinic urged a client to cure away his gayness through prayer, but Marcus says they don’t try to change people, and besides, the client asked for it!
As for the tape of Bachmann calling gays barbarians, Marcus says it must have been altered.
He was actually speaking about children!
Oh, that’s much better.
