I can’t wait for the day when progressive males can evolve to a higher intellectual level and debate conservative women on facts, not on sex.
Have we ever had a woman president? Who was the last to win the right to vote? Right.
Imagine if they played that song to introduce a Democratic woman like Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Barbara Boxer, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Lisa Madigan? Then the wingnuts would defend it. And the last time I checked, it's Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, Jim Hoft, Sean Hannity, Michael Whiner Savage, and their ilk who lobby sexist screeds against Nancy Pelosi, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer, Elizabeth Warren, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, et al., and not the other way around.
From the 11.21.2011 edition of NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon:
Debunking Loesch's insane point, The Huffington Posts's article reports that the words "lyin' ass bitch" were NOT audible.
NEW YORK -- Jimmy Fallon's house band The Roots appear not to be fans of Republican presidential contender Michele Bachmann.
As Bachmann strode on to the stage for an appearance on Fallon's "Late Night" early Tuesday, the show's band played a snippet of a Fishbone song called "Lyin' Ass Bitch."
It's usually the host delivering the political snark, but last night on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," it was the house band that provided the pointed message.
As US Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) made her way across the stage, The Roots, who back Fallon each night, played a coded message of a song for her introduction music. Astute ears -- or Twitter followers of drummer Questlove -- could identify the song: "Lyin' As* B*tch" by Fishbone.
While the audience only heard a "la la" refrain, the message was sent. Before the show, Questlove tweeted, "aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title."
Given Loesch's long history of double standards on sexism, she will defend Conservative/Republican sexism while trashing Liberal/Democratic "alleged sexism" to the hilt.
