Jerry Seinfeld helps Jon Stewart with his Marcus Bachmann problem [VIDEO]

Seinfeld tried to keep Jon "straight' on Marcus Bachmann.
Marcus Bachmann has made his living trying to help gay kids be straight. Last night on "The Daily Show," Jerry Seinfeld played counselor, trying to help Jon Stewart not make gay jokes at Marcus Bachmann's expense.

Stewart ran through some choice clips of Marcus Bachmann that make it look like that not only is he president of Bachmann and Associates, but he's also a client.

After watching a particularly light-footed moment from Marcus, even Seinfeld can only say, "Wow."

Stewart's assessment of Dr. Bachmann, drawn first from a video clip where Marcus and Michele do a swing dance, is that he might be "curing [gay people] so he can hoard all the gayness for himself."

"Is he teaching people not to be gay?" Stewart asks. "Or is he like the Green Mile Guy, just absorbing it all?"

Eventually, Jerry shows up and tries to get Jon to go... "straight," to use an apt word. It works, sort of, but after a while even Seinfeld has to get in a few shots of his own.

I love the Don Rickles joke at the end.   Imagine how awesome Don Rickles meeting that person would be.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Have you tried it straight from the Daily Show website?    I know they post all their clips for free.  I imagine they'd want people in the UK to see this.

I had to try very, very hard not to use that line, but I'm glad someone did.

Yeah, my friend said it wouldnt open up... There are copyright issues involved just like when we in the US try to access a video from a foreign network.  Apparently the show used to air on UK's Ch4 but they dropped it...I sent him the original Daily Show link but no go...Most youtube clips get pulled before he opens the email.  He was finally able to see a little bit from an MSNBC clip on Youtube...but I wanted him to see the entire version.  Oh well

I was slightly surprised you didn't. I know my friend, Bob Sacamano, would have!
