In news that you could kind of see hurtling at you from miles away, Michele Bachmann has already accepted an apology from Jimmy Fallon and she now wants an apology from NBC for her "Lyin' Ass Bitch" intro music. "This wouldn't be tolerated if it was Michelle Obama, it shouldn't be tolerated for a conservative woman," said Bachmann on Fox News claiming that the move was sexist. But wasn't that just a nasty attack in general? Regardless if you're a man, woman or Michelle Obama it just seemed like a below the belt, personal attack. Bachmann also squeezed two of her favorite words, "elite" and "bias" as she parlayed the request into a politically-charged talking point. "If that song had been played for Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her, and likely they could have fired the drummer, or at least, suspended him,” Bachmann said. "This is clearly a form of bias on the part of the Hollywood entertainment elite."
