You know I'm no fan of Michele Bachmann, but Jimmy Fallon went too far

Bachmann appeared on Jimmy Fallon Monday night, and she unknowingly walked in to the song "Lyin' Ass Bitch" by Fishbone. Most people did not notice this until the band's drummer tweeted about the song choice.

I'm not saying that Michele Bachmann, known frequently on my blog as DAAP, is not a liar. I was just about to write a post about all the lies in her recently published memoir. I am no fan, and damn straight she is a liar and not particularly smart either. She does hold her own with Jimmy Fallon, and they have an extremely tame exchange on his show (after the song introduction) (video below).

I'm glad to read that people across the political spectrum are calling out this sexist attack on Bachmann. It's never okay to call a powerful woman a bitch. "The choice of song to introduce Michele Bachmann on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' last night was insulting and inappropriate," New York Rep. Nita Lowey, a Democrat, told Politico Tuesday. "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."
