It's Not Often I Defend Michele Bachmann, but...

Recently, Presidential candidate and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. When she was introduced, Late Night's house band, The Roots, played her out with "Lying Ass Bitch", a song by ska-punk band Fishbone.

To his credit, Fallon conducted a good interview and Bachmann must've found her Zen place or something, because she's been doing well on the campaign trail the last couple of weeks.

But it was absolutely shameful that she was introduced with that song and I can't believe how some people on the Left, who would be screaming misogyny if Nancy Pelosi or Michelle Obama was introduced with a song like that, are brushing this off as humor. You'd see the nut jobs from Democratic Underground and other fringe organizations gathering signatures and Occupying NBC and it'd be the outrage of the year.

It's too bad. I actually really like The Roots, but this'll make me think twice before I buy concert tickets to see them.
