*Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing number of critics who are criticizing the White House’s decision to invite rapper/actor Common to a poetry event this week.
Fox News’ website picked up the story first reported in The Daily Caller, which pointed out Common’s “Def Poetry” poem “Letter to the Law,” which criticizes police and says the line, “Burn a Bush cuz for peace he no push no button.”
Palin tweeted in response: “Oh lovely, White House,” with a link to Daily Caller’s write-up.
As previously reported, President Obama and his wife Michelle will host the gathering of poets, musicians and artists at the White House on Wednesday night. Joining Common on the performance bill are Elizabeth Alexander, Billy Collins, Rita Dove, Kenneth Goldsmith, Alison Knowles, Aimee Mann and Jill Scott.
