    Default Roots Introduce Michelle Bachmann With "Lyin' Ass Bitch" on Late Night

    "Jimmy Fallon" band slams Michele Bachmann with song choice
    By Brian Montopoli

    Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann emerged for an interview on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" Monday night to the song "Lyin' A** B*tch" by the band Fishbone, Spin Magazine reports.

    It's unlikely that Bachmann, who smiled and waved as the song was played, recognized what was happening - though the (wordless) music certainly sounded out of place. (You can see and hear it at left, via Politico.) The song came from the show's official band, The Roots, which has performed at rallies on behalf of President Obama.

    Before the song was played, The Roots' drummer Questlove tweeted, "aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title."

    He later retweeted reactions, including "@questlove huge ups to the fishbone tune for Bachman on jimmy tonight. perfect entry song for her!"

    Fallon, meanwhile, Tweeted Tuesday: "@Questlove is grounded."

    The Bachmann campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

    Rep. Nita Lowey said the song choice was insulting and inappropriate as she called on The Roots, Jimmy Fallon and NBC to apologize.

    "I do not share Michele Bachmann's politics, but she deserves to be treated with respect. No female politician - and no woman - should be subjected to sexist and offensive innuendo like she was last night," the New York Democrat said in a prepared statement.

    Love Fallon, like the Roots, I would never vote for Bachmann...but the Roots deserve jeers for this. I imagine Fallon had no idea.

    Fallon has since tweeted: I'm honored that @michelebachmann was on our show yesterday and I'm so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back.

    Was about to say, it's about time Fallon did something funny....but I suppose the credit actually goes to his band.

    To me this falls under artistic licence. Artists don't need to be objective, they express their opinion through their art. Newsanchors, journalists, they need to be objective.

    Honestly, between here and Facebook, I am surprised that so many people are like "Meh, it was funny, Bachman's a cunt."

    In fact, the comment sections on most boards are 90% pro-Roots.

    I don't like Bachmann, but come on.

    I just like that this is probably the most rock and roll thing to happen in the last 10 years. Seriously. It's the spirit of rock and roll. Republican, Democrat, it doesn't matter. The band felt a certain way about a certain person and let it be known through music without actually getting in her face on TV and saying "You're a lying ass bitch."

    Interesting… This is mostly blown off and excused, but race fans booing Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden are scolded.

    The country needs something to unite us like a nuke in a suitcase?

    At least Nascar fans were drunk and considering that our country really isn't thriving under the Obama admin, one can almost justify it. This was planned and far worse. Actually attacking the character and calling a successful woman a bitch.

    I personally don't like the woman but you don't insinuate that she is a bitch
