2012 Election Sexism Watch #8: Bachmann Enters Stage to “Lyin’ Ass Bitch”

Earlier this week, Michele Bachmann entered the set of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon accompanied by the musical musings of The Roots covering the Fishbone song, “Lyin’ Ass Bitch.” 

Glenn Beck responded by calling Fallon a “despicable human being.” The Women’s Media Center noted that this gender slur was both “sexist and unfunny.” Fallon has since apologized.

  1. what a horrible song… ‘music’ has gone so far downhill it is ‘out of sight’
    symptom of the spiritual state of society … nothing is too much, there is no ‘offensive’, or ‘obscene’
    what is ‘next’? something even more outrageous … in the pursuit of funny

    OK, and what do you think? You seem so reserved. Good song choice for Bachmann?
