Openly gay actress and Emmy host Jane Lynch appeared on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell Tuesday night to talk about her new book, the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and how her Glee character Sue Sylvester is starting to resemble real life Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann as Sue runs for an open seat in Congress. Lynch says the show's creators may be putting words in Sue's mouth that the real Bachmann might want to say but has been stopped by her campaign handlers.

That may change, Lynch says, now that Bachmann's campaign manager, Ed Rollins, has left. So will Glee start becoming - gasp - more political?
