WTF Fridays: So Common

Well, they can’t blame Desiree Rogers this time.

Aren’t “poets” supposed to be controversial?  Who wants to listen to a poem about lillies in the wind for more than 5 minutes?

First Lady Michelle chose a nice array of poets, including Common.  I think it’s some people’s worst nightmare that one day Michelle will have an all-out “Freaknik” in the White House a la Jones Beach 1997, with barbecued chicken and fried rice for everyone.

It was either Kanye or Common.   I bet it makes more sense now!

    The right wing shouldn’t be the only one to object to Common. He’s not denigraded because he’s a poet but because he sympathises with cop killers and wants white presidents assasinated. Is that something that should be endorsed by an invitation to the WH?

    The right wing has nothing better to do. I don’t know who should win the go somewhere & sit down award this week – Ellen Pompeo or the Republican talking heads.
