Sarah Palin Rips Michelle Obama, Common

by at . Comments

Former half-term governor and current famous person Sarah Palin slammed Michelle Obama on Twitter today for inviting Common to the White House.

Her beef? Palin and some others aren't thrilled that the rapper and actor promotes healthy diets once rhymed about burning President George W. Bush.

"Oh lovely, White House," tweeted the ex-veep hopeful, making sarcastic reference to a story on Common and Michelle Obama in the Daily Caller.

Palin Common

The conservative website resurrected a Common aimed at Dubya by transcribing lyrics from a 2007 YouTube video of a past performance of "Letter to the Law."

"Seeing a fiend being hung/With that happening, why they messing with Saddam?/Burn a Bush 'cause for peace he no push no button," goes the song.

Common continues: "Killing over oil and grease/no weapons of destruction/How can we follow a leader when this a corrupt one."

Michelle Obama invited Common, a fellow Chicagoan and former member of the Obamas' church (yes, that church), to an event celebrating American poetry.

Palin's criticism was echoed by the Drudge Report and Fox News. The rapper, whose real name is Lonnie Rashid Jr., seemed pleased, if anything.

"So apparently Sarah Palin and Fox News don't like me," the hip-hopster tweeted to CNN's Roland Martin. "It's not funny... I'm dangerous!" he joked.

What do you think of the criticism levied by Palin and others? Valid? Just an attempt to find up the lowest Common denominator and rile up the base?

(Sorry.)

Common is a great rapper. and who cares if he is friends with the White House famille? Who's business is that? And furthermore, why scrutinize the friends of someone else? Unless you are Michelle Obama's mother, why should you give a damn who she talks to and who she hangs out with? Sincerely, who cares?

Too bad the article doesn't tell you the whole story about Common's song defending convicted cop-killer Joanne Chesimard, which is what Palin and others are trying to point out. Articles like this one fail to provide all of the details. Look it up, she is a disgusting individual that Common chose to glorify in poetry, which is what Common was invited to the White House to discuss.

The Obamas are a joke... It's an embarrasment that they would be doing these sort of things... Play golf, spend money, play basketball, spend money, vacation, spend money, campagn earlier then ever done before on our dime, spend money... oh and spend money. Common is a joke and should not ever be invited somewhere like the white house. I have no respect for a president who has no respect for his office.

By all indications, Sarah Palin has an *unhealthy obsession with Michelle Obama. Palin found it to be all good to turn around Michelle's intentions toward healthy meals,as a way of telling Sarah's young children that Michelle didn't want them to have desserts. Palin expressed horror at Michelle having a vegetable garden on the grounds of The White House.Palin is beginning to sound more like the disgruntled wallflower sitting on the sidelines looking for complaints against the popular honor roll student. Now she is questioning who is invited to The White House. It seems that Palin should be more concerned about her own daughter's recently altered facial features instead of trying to keep up with the activities, and invitations of The First Lady!!

MLL- I agree with you that our country would be better off if we eliminated the labels "democrat" and "republican" SO THAT THE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE TO CONSIDER THE IDEAS, not just LABEL and DISPOSE of thoughts about the good of the nation!
