    Bachmann: NBC President Should Have Apologized To Me, Not A Deputy | Real Clear PoliticsPresidential hopeful Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is still upset with NBC and the network's program "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." Last week, the Congresswoman went on the show and unknowingly was introduced with a profane song called "Lyin' Ass Bitch."

    "Of course I accept the apology, but my guess is it would have been the president of NBC that would have been apologizing, not the senior vice president of programming," Bachmann told KLIF-AM radio.

    “If a Don Imus or someone does something questionable, they’re thrown off the air. But when it’s done to a conservative, it’s just passed off and forgotten," she said.


    I haven't agreed with Mrs. Bachmann on most things, and wish her husband would admit he's a flamer, but she's right on this. Disgusting display of misogyny and definitely would not be tolerated had it been directed at Mrs. Obama, Mrs. Clinton, or Mrs. Pelosi.

    Get it together, Jimmy Fallon!

    I'm from Georgia, where "Mrs." is a title that commands immediate respect. I worked on the Clinton campaign in 2008, met Hillary multiple times, and addressed her as Mrs. Clinton to her face just like any proper Southern boy raised by a good mother would do. She didn't have a problem with it or with me.

    So please do not project your lack of manners onto me. Mmmkay? Thanks.

    Back to the topic: the President of NBC owes MRS. Bachmann an apology.

    Lack of manners from addressing a person by their title? Hmmm, thanks 4 pointing this out 2 me. Now i'll go call the dean of the college Mrs. rather than Dean. Wonder how she'll take that?

    Nice try, but it's not either or. Either Dean or Mrs. is appropriate, but that's besides the point because I don't give a flying fuck how you address or don't address someone based on your inability to see gray areas an insistence on dividing things into either/or arguments.

    Just don't presume to call me misogynist because I have good manners and you're on lame "either this or that and never both" crusade.

    You're not going to win by beating this dead horse. The intimation that I was being sexist by addressing women I respect as Mrs. is simply wrong. It was wrong yesterday, it's wrong today, and it'll be wrong tomorrow.

    So I will no longer dignify the accusation of misogyny -- nor allow you to change the subject -- by acknowledging it any further.

    Oh, and I'll keep using "Mrs." when and where appropriate.

    Yeah I suppose. The problem is that it's just so tempting to make fun of her, even if its inappropriate. Cries of "sexism" coming from a homophobe...hmmm.

    What are we to think of Ms. Monroe singing "Happy birthday, MR. President"...?

    In Virginia, they still refer to our nation's third president as "Mr. Jefferson". it's quirky, endearing, and definitely a Southern thing.


    Political Correctness only applies to select groups...dontcha know?

    Really, tailgater doesn't have much of a point: after all, using "Mr./Mrs./Ms./Miss" is considered more respectful than using a person's name without any formal title...

    ...and yet people refer to the Kennedy's as "JFK," "Bobby Kennedy" and "Teddy Kennedy" at varying times, they refer to Abraham Lincoln as "Abe Lincoln," and of course, when he wasn't being called "retarded cowboy" or "moron," George W. Bush was often called "Dubya."

    Not even the first US President is given a formal title everytime he's mentioned...it's usually just "George Washington."

    Seriously, people need to get over PC thuggery when it is THIS asinine!

    In Georgia, we still refer to Mr. Jefferson as "ole massa."

    (Too soon?)
