So, The Roots got the unlucky gig of playing the song for Republican presidential hopeful / crazy-eyed killer, Michelle Bachmann’s, entrance on Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon the other night. They spoke through their music, playing a cover of Fishbone’s “Lyin’ Ass Bitch”. Touche’.

“The performance was a tongue-in-cheek and spur of the moment decision. The show was not aware of it and I feel bad if her feelings were hurt. That was not my intention,” said Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson in a statement.

He tweeted earlier, “late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title.”

Jimmy Fallon has since made a public apology to Bachmann, stating “?uestlove is grounded,” and later following with “I’m honored that @michelebachmann was on our show yesterday and I’m so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back.”

Hmm, perhaps they should have gone with something more subtle, like Eminem’s “(Bitch Gets) No Love”?

    Complete racist BS! If a white group ever insulted a black female left wing politicain in such a demeaning and disrespectful manner they would be finished. For a group of emcees that act so “real” and “true” to take a blind sided swipe at a WOMAN?? cowards. Altough it doesn’t really matter, these fools are washed up as it is. They are out of touch has-beens grappling to stay current. They are the house band on a late night talk show, pathetic. Let’s see them try that cowardly move on a right wing man. He’d put questlove through his bass drum fat face first.
