Bachmann wanders into ambush, blames NBC

From Fox News:

Republican candidate Michele Bachmann addressed the controversy surrounding her appearance on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ this week, saying if what happened to her had happened to the First Lady, heads would have rolled.

When Bachmann was introduced on the Fallon's show Monday, Fallon’s house band, the Roots, played Fishbone’s song ‘Lyin’ Ass Bitch.’

Fallon has since apologized, and while Bachmann said she accepts the comedian’s apology, she thinks NBC should apologize as well.

“If that had been Michelle Obama, who’d come out on the stage, and if that song had been played for Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her and likely they would have fired the drummer, or at least suspended him," she told Fox News.

“This is clearly a form of bias on the part of the Hollywood entertainment elite," she said, adding the incident smacked of sexism as well.

Ms. Bachmann,

First of all, Michelle Obama would never, ever have been greeted with that song. And secondly, you're the one who was dumb enough to go on that network, which has tripped you up in the past. So basically, stop whining. It hardly looks presidential.
