From earlier this week, Stephen Colbert had a bit of fun with former Iowa gubernatorial candidate and gay bashing wingnut, Bob Vander Plaats and his organization, the Iowa Family Leader for comparing homosexuality to secondhand cigarette smoke.

Colbert managed to work in a few shots at wingnut Michele Bachmann and #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement Jon Kyl as well.
