I don’t want to get all political here, because I know about 88% of you skew heavily to the right, but this story is newsworthy and important, so allow me to present it objectively with minimal commentary.

The Roots, who have always had a sense of humor about the intro music for guests on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, welcomed GOP candidate/person-to-be-taken-seriously Michelle Bachmann onto the show by performing an instrumental version of Fishbone’s “Lyin’ Ass Bitch.”

I’m guessing that, since that song is 26 years old and very obscure, it wasn’t a coincidence.

So…is this worse than the time they played out Spencer and Heidi to Beck’s “Loser” or Joe Jackson’s “Is She Really Going Out With Him?” for Jessica Biel (cause she was dating JT, ya see)?

What a dumb rhetorical question. Yeah, this is worse. Though the “Loser” intro gives it a run for its money.

Is it really, really funny?

Families across America shouldn’t be subjected to that word.

USA values preclude such a deragatory term being bandied about.

Can’t we find a more adult level of discourse?

Knowing that this is where we are as a country saddens me.

You have to decide that for yourself.

Everyone has a different opinion, all of which are equally valid.

Surely you can find another avenue for political commentary.

Herman Cain has kept the internet plugging along today with his newest campaign video (below). But does he really get to corner the market on ill-advised campaign videos? Of course not. We live in America, where around 80% of our politicians are certifiably crazy, so let’s remember that he’s party to just one of many weird campaign videos of the recent past.

Herman Cain – 2012

This spot is just fine until the last eight seconds or so, when the wheels just fall off. The close up of the Chief of Staff smoking a cigarette, the cheesy, cheesy song, and, of course, Herman Cain doing a slow turn towards the camera. You would half expect the White House to be condemned after two months if these guys moved in there.

Mike Gravel – 2008

This ad is called the “demon sheep” spot, quite fittingly. Just…just watch it, please.
