Paying a visit to the Jimmy Fallon show, Michele Bachmann gets serenaded by a strange musical number by the house band led by Roots drummer (and Occupy Wall Street supporter) ?uestlove.
An instrumental version of Fishbone’s “Lyin’ Ass Bitch”
Best punk’d moment for a politician this year.and I don’t know Jimmy Fallon from Jimmy Kimmel.
Both sides of the political spectrum get their giggles when and where they can and if skewering pompous politicians becomes off-limits, please let me know when that law is passed so I can mock it mercilessly and flaunt it relentlessly.
Michelle Obama and Jill Biden attended a NASCAR event last weekend and got booed for their trouble. Maybe I should be bent about that, but when the typical attendees of NASCAR probably aren’t your typical Obama demographic, so if you walk into the lion’s den wearing meat underwear you can hardly squawk when you get bit.
The same principle goes for Bachmann going on the Jimmy Fallon show. Meet the Press it ain’t so if a pompous, stick up the butt, humorless prig like Michele Bachmann gets taken down a peg, I don’t apologize for finding it funny. It’s about time she got called on the hateful shit that spews out of her piehole.
She’s said far worse about entire groups of folks that don’t fit into her narrow-minded worldview including “gays are part of Satan,”
Here’s another of Michele’s lies. She signed a pledge that stated Black families were better off as slaves than living in an America with a Black president.
“Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.”
The Minnesota soccer mommy turned right-wing presidential candidate demanded an apology from Fallon as she huffed, “This is an outrage,” Bachmann told political reporting site the Hill. “The point is, if that had been Michelle Obama who had come out on the stage and that song had been played to Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her. This is clearly a form of bias on the side of the entertainment elite.”
Baby, you ain’t Michelle Obama and you’ve said and I know you can’t be serious about wanting an apology. Not with all the people you’ve offended over the years. Where the hell is your apology for that bullshit about slavery?
Bachmann is the worst kind of right-winger. She immerses herself in bigotry and then when she gets a small dose of it tossed back in her Botoxed mug, she squawks like a wet hen.
Humor is subjective and comedy isn’t pretty as Steve Martin said. I don’t have a problem with the clever way The Roots took down one pompous politician any more than I do with Fishbone making a song called “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” in the first place. Hell, I’m pleased at an opportunity to mention Fishbone.
Getting dogged out by the instrumental version of a naughty song isn’t disrespect, it’s karma and if karma is a bitch, at least she’s not a lyin’ ass one.
