Well After All, the Birther Controversy's Run Out of Steam...

One of the most ridiculous 'controversies' being stirred up recently is the angst over poet/rapper (or rapper/poet) Common appearing at the White House.

Seriously?!

I'm not a fan of rap or 'def jam poetry, but if Common is not one of the most benign entertainers in these categories, I don't know who is. And in the light of everything there is for pundits to talk about - the economy, the wars, employment, health care - the fact that anyone on a serious news program or network would do more than note Common's appearance is a sign of just how superficial this type of 'news' has become...

Well, superficial and more than a bit hypocritical...


I wonder what's behind the incessant need to find other reasons than policy to disagree with this President?
