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.
