Poll question: Really, Michele? Would NBC have FIRED THE DRUMMER?


Michele Bachmann has spoken out and demanded an apology for the song played by the Roots, the "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" house band, when she was introduced as a guest Monday night. Bachmann called the song, "Lyin' Ass Bitch" by Fishbone, sexist and a sign of Hollywood's bias.

She was unaware of the significance of the song's title at the time, she said, but was later angered to hear its meaning.

"I think the point is," she told Fox News's America's Newsroom, "if that had been Michelle Obama who had come out on the stage, and if that song had been played for Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her and likely they could have fired the drummer, at least suspended him, none of that happened from NBC and this is clearly a form of bias on the part of the Hollywood entertainment elite but its also I think its sexism as well."

The First Lady was booed by fans at a NASCAR race at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, for which the racing circuit later apologized.

6. Yeah, but that's not enough for Bachmann.
The drummer still has a job.

3. But the song fits you Michele Bachmann,
and it just doesn't fit Michelle Obama.

5. Well, this should give Bachmann a boost in her polling.
Nothing like being victimized by the liberal media to earn her polling points. I'm surprised she'd even appear on that show...I'd have figured she'd avoid such a venue like the plague.

7. The only bias here is towards YOU...
Michelle, and really can you blame them? You are a mean, spiteful, hateful, nasty, angry woman. Did you think they were going to give you flowers?

10. A member of the band tweeted it out on Twitter before the show began.
DU has nothing to do with this.

13. It was not from DU
The drummer sent out two tweats on twitter. The first was before she came out and he said they were going "to do something snarky" on her. Then after they played the song he tweated the name of the song.

9. The tea party is disrespecting America, no one should give them even the slightest bit of respect.

14. It shouldn't have been played.
She may be all that the song described, but it still should not have been played. Just because Limbaugh and brain-dead NASCAR fans stoop to that kind of misogynistic crap doesn't mean we should engage in the same tit-for-tat garbage. I don't think anyone should be fired, but a public apology is in order, IMHO.

17. They wouldn't play that for Michelle Obama because she's not running for office and
she's not a "Lyin' Ass B*tch" so no reason to play it. :shrug:
