The Roots Express Their Distaste For Michele Bachmann In Song

Last night, crazy-eyed bully apologist Michele Bachmann was a guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Perhaps to make up for the incredibly boring, softball questions they knew Jimmy was going to ask her, house band The Roots decided to have a bit of fun with her intro music.

Their choice for her walk on song? Fishbone’s 1985 classic “Lyin’ Ass Bitch,” a fitting theme for someone who lies freely and alarmingly until it seems like she’s “equal parts crazed Divine Wind kamikaze-for-Jesus and calculating, six-faced Machiavellian prevaricator.”

This isn’t the first time the band has slyly commented on one of Jimmy’s guests; when Ashlee Simpson was on the show, for instance, they played Milli Vanilli‘s “Girl You Know It’s True” (a reference to her lipsyncing), while Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt got to walk out to Beck‘s “Loser.” What’s that it says in Bachmann’s favorite book? “Whatsoever a fame whore soweth, that shall he also reap.”

Drummer Questlove let on that this was going to happen in a tweet he sent out before the show:

For his part, Jimmy Fallon remains as blandly non-confrontational as ever:

Hulu has the full episode, and as of now, has not pulled it down; the same cannot be said for NBC’s website.
