Tobias Fünke Quotes Presented By Marcus Bachmann (PICTURES)

Marcus Bachmann, a.k.a. Mr. Michele Bachmann, has emerged as a controversial figure in the news as of late, even becoming a hot topic on "The Daily Show." But if Bachmann seems a little familiar, you're not alone. A certain cult TV character played by David Cross bears more than a few similarities with Rep. Bachmann's husband.

Consider Bachmann's recent quote saying bi-curious people are "barbarians" that "need to be disciplined." We couldn't help but be reminded of Tobias Fünke from "Arrested Development" telling his daughter Maeby, "There's a new daddy in town. A discipline daddy," as he listened to a Village People-like disco anthem, "Discipline Daddy."

Not only that, but Marcus Bachmann's credentials as a therapist have come into question, and he isn't technically licensed to practice psychology in Minnesota -- his alleged ex-gay clinic operates on a bit of a loophole. Tobias, on the other hand, was delicensed from practicing psychology before becoming the world's first analyst and therapist, or "analrapist."

So with those similarities in mind, there was really only one thing for us to do: combine some of our favorite Tobias quotes with photos of Bachmann. Because why not? A word of warning to Michele: If any of the nannies who helped raise your 23 foster kids was named Mrs. Featherbottom, you may want to make sure your name isn't actually Lindsay Bluth.
