Michelle, why would you want to be president to people like that? You are better than that. They don't deserve you. Let them stew in their ugliness. Poor Questlove, he is sooo ugly! How would this sonofa...feel if these epithets were directed to his mama? Pfui Mr. Ugly and all of your cohorts!

The difference between Bachmann and Questlove is that even though Bachmann may eventually accept an apology, her supporters probably won't. Apologies have been made, and though not completely accepted, she should at least condemn any persons that harass and/or use racism to demand an apology that she probably won't accept anyway.

Yep, never gonna happen. A money-worshipping hypocrite like Bachmann is not capable of such behavior.
02:57 PM on 12/04/2011
Too bad that won't happen, since Bachmann supporters are racist pig people.

Can someone explain to me how this was an attack against women?

the use of the word 'bitch' was a bit much, and I agree that he may have been better served using a different song, but I think that the theme song to 'The Generals Daughter,' would have REALLY gone sailing over head....

Hahaha @ Racist Tea Partiers. This little incident has made the racist base of these candidates all the clearer. Ad-hominem attacks don't belong in any intelligent discussion, but they do tell you a lot about the person who uses them.

Ok, so racist comments are bad, but, sexist comments are ok (if leveled at a republican women). As mentioned before, it amazing to me to see the 'womens groups' all but ignore anything said about a 'conservative women". But, had this been played for Mrs. Clintion, there would have been massive out cry. The womens groups have clearly displayed the hypocrisey in which they live. During the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, the women's groups had said "consensual sex between a superior and employee is still sexual harassment, as, the boss has the power to fire her". Clinton leader of the free world, and, a secretary? Womens groups had nothing to say. Hypocrites. I wish Bachman would simply go away. But, I'm really as tired of the "picking and choosing the person or action to register indignation over. As opposed to practicing what these groups preach.

The Clinton affairs exposed the women's rights groups as utter hypocrites with no moral foundation

You are indeed a victim, but I left my crying towel in the car.

She is not a victim, since this is not about victims. It's about respect and decency on TV.

Many of you are just using this one man's poor behavior as an excuse to voice the hostility towards all black people that you were already feeling.

The racists do not understand that disliking the behavior of one black person does not justify your racism towards all of us, which is what your insults and name-calling are all about.

I never did anything to Bachmann, yet white people think it's acceptable to stereotype and insult me because of this young man's actions.

I am an African American woman AND a feminist. Questlove was wrong and sexist, and those who are attacking him are wrong and racist.

Judge him as an individual, do not insult every other black person or hold us responsible for his behavior.

the race card - awesome!
02:51 PM on 12/04/2011
You can't trivialize real racism by whining about the 'race card'. I guess racists like you will always think that a minority can't POSSIBLY ever speak from a position of integrity - it's just the race card!

Not if you agree with him regardless of the fact that it was a stupid decision.

I wonder how the left would have reacted if a similarly defamatory intro song would have been used as the First Lady was introduced?
01:38 PM on 12/04/2011
The title of the song does not fit Michelle Obama. So anyone who is interested in accuracy (right, left or center) would have taken issue with its use in an introduction of her.

The application of the song to Michele Bachmann is not defamatory. "But it's true." is always a good defense against charges of slander, liable and defamation of character.
02:00 PM on 12/04/2011
Libel. Not liable.

answer the question
01:45 PM on 12/04/2011
The artist explained by the song had been used - to address the habit that s. Bachmann has of rewriting history. Perhaps it could have been done better, and for that he apologized. Of course, the kind of "faux outrage" and apology demanding minions that follow Bachmann fail to realize the irony of their demands - that Ms. Bachmann has never apologized for her numerous offensive comments and lies.

Am I wrong? Wasn't Quest the one who tweeted to everyone that they were gonna have a surprise?

If he'd kept quiet, only Fishbone fans would have figured it out and they both don't like MB either, so they would have kept it private. Quest was too proud of his cleverness not to share it and he got burned

The use of this song was intentional, as his pre-taping messages indicated.

those epithets just may fit.
01:29 PM on 12/04/2011
Really? You are arguing that ALL black people deserve to endure the n-word because you do not like the actions of ONE black person? Your logic is as shallow as you are.
12:37 PM on 12/04/2011
It's very telling when a person or movement is wronged and the targeted individual fires back with personal insults which have no connection to the incident. It gives the imperssion that these people are anxiously sitting on a stack of racist slurs that they feel justified in slinging in defense of themselves or their group. I understand why Bachman and Co. feel insulted; they were. But, what does that have to do with Questlove and his questionable choice? In my experience, when people fall back on personal insults in an argument it indicates that they have a poor grasp of facts or the maturity to address the discussion as a civilized adult.

Thought it was the perfect choice of song for her...factual and contemporary. She is what it says. No need to apologize for anything. Flame on Teabaggers
