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.)

Who cares what Sarah Palin feels.

Oh please. She's just whining because she's not allowed anywhere near that place nowadays. Hell, she wasn't invited to the Correspondent's Dinner yet celebrities like Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev were.

Brandt Hardin, what the h*ll did you say, all those edu-macated words and all. Obtuse, that's a word from the Shawshank Redemption movie and all that, so what's the connection?
God, it would serve our country so much better if we could just STOP all that labeling, Republicans/Democrats. Can't we all just agree to disagree and not beat each other up like Gangs do, hmmmmmm The Red vs Blue, North vs South, East vs West, sports team rivalry, just a bunch of grown GANGS is all.

In my opinion her comments are fueled by nothing more than RACISM, DISCRIMINATION, HAUGHTYNESS AND JEALOUSY! what he said in his rhyme has nothing to do with her need to comment which she does quite too much. He is black and she including others dont like it. PERIOD!

Another win for Sarah Palin. You people are so afraid of her that you keep getting her into the headlines. And BTW Samir Bernstein it's the DemoKKKrat party that has the history of racism. Do some historical research some time. You only call Republicans racist because you're the one with pure, blinding hatred for them because YOU'RE the one that sees them as one color - white. Even though the fastest growing group of Republicans these days are Hispanic and even blacks are turning Republican more often than Democrat. But you wouldn't know that because you're a Obama bobblehead blinded by the mainstream

Palin is doing what all effective Republican pols do: blow the dog whistle and speak in code. It's a way to insinuate to the basest of their base that African-American culture is inferior to Caucasian culture. Nothing more nothing less.
