*In his defense of GOP presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann being introduced on Jimmy Fallon’s Monday broadcast to the song “Lyin’ Ass Bitch,” conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on his Wednesday show said that if Michelle Obama were to appear on his radio show, he would introduce the first lady with Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 hit “Baby Got Back.”
Limbaugh’s goal was to “illustrate” what the reaction would be, compared to the attention given when Bachmann was introduced to the now infamous Fishbone song.
“Ladies and gentlemen, it is not often that we have guests here on this program at the EIB Network,” Limbaugh said. “But as today as it can often happen, we have an exception and I am proud and I am honored and I want to introduce to the microphones of this program the First Lady of the United States Michelle ‘Mochelle’ Obama.”
Limbaugh suggested there was a possibility the Sir-Mix-A-Lot tune could have been on the iPod he gave the Queen of England back in 2009.
“I wonder if that song was on the iPod that Barack gave the Queen the first time he went over to visit here in the U.K.,” Limbaugh said. “Now you people are probably saying, ‘Rush, that’s tasteless – how could you possibly?’ I’m just trying to illustrate. That’s what we do here on this program sometimes. You illustrate absurdity by being absurd.”
Limbaugh has taken heat in recent days for another swipe he took at the first lady, saying she was guilty of committing “uppity-ism” on his Monday program.
