In this clip from Friday, Keith Olbermann has on Politico reporter Ken Vogel to discuss the troubling anti-gay statements of Michele Bachmann’s husband Marcus. Marcus Bachmann runs an “ex-gay” therapy center, a controversial type of therapy aimed at converting homosexuals into heterosexuals through Christ. Vogel suggests that perhaps Bachmann has been keeping her husband out of the spotlight because of his history of bizarre statements about homosexuals, including calling gays “barbarians” who need to be “disciplined”.
Keith seems to believe that these bizarre statements are going to be a liability for Bachmann’s political aspirations. It’s going to be impossible, he says, for Rep. Bachmann to hide her husband during the campaign and keep him (he asks us to forgive the expression) “in the closet”.
