The Roots play "Lyin' Ass Bitch" for Michele Bachmann on Fallon

Coming soon to a Fox News segment near you: When Michele Bachmann was a guest last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the Republican presidential candidate walked out as house band the Roots played the Fishbone song, "Lyin' Ass Bitch." Apparently Bachmann isn't familiar with the ska-punk band's self-titled 1985 EP, because the song choice came and went without a remark. But the cat is out of the bag this morning, and has been raising hackles all over the Internet. The clip has since been removed by NBC from the show's online broadcast (though you can still see it below), and will no doubt cause much consternation on the right. As for Fallon, he tweeted this morning: "@questlove is grounded."[via the Washington Post]
