Maybe the folks over at The Daily Beast have a point: This might have been a little less than classy of the Great El Rushbo. It does have a little “eye-for-an-eye” quality to it. (And, in general, I tend to think both the office of the president and the office of the First Lady deserve to be respected in and of themselves.) But it’s also — I have to admit — pretty funny.
Playing off Bachmann’s point earlier today that NBC would definitely apologize if Jimmy Fallon and The Roots had treated Michelle Obama the way they treated her, Rush today introduced a fake Mrs. O with Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” You know the one. “I like big butts and I cannot lie” …
When somebody in his studio seems to demur, Rush says, “I get it. One is true and one is not. That’s the difference.” Bold, I tell ya: The man does not back down.
