VID: "Controversial rapper" Common's White House poem mentions Biblical heroes and the return of Jesus Christ

Mainstream rapper Common was invited to and performed at last night's "Evening of Poetry" at the White House.

The overture led to much public hand-wringing by a handful of conservatives who proved they're quite unfamiliar with Lonnie Rashin Lynn Jr.'s work. Sarah Palin tweaked him on Twitter and Karl Rove, who worked in the White House for President George W. Bush, labeled Common a "thug."

In actuality, Common is generally known as a "conscience rapper" and would probably reside near the bottom of any thinking-man's list of MCs you wouldn't want to have at such an event.

But all of that is politics. What I found most interesting is that Common's spoken word piece referenced several Biblical heroes and even the return of Jesus Christ.

Here's a clip:

Sounds like content the Fox News hounds would support if you ask me...

Sarah Palin was so successful as a governor, she graduated early, she real is a “Dan Quayle” in heels. She clearly loves “dishing it out” but real can’t take it because she loves playing the victim card. Poor thing she fail as a VP candidate (her lie that her daughter was engaged was such a farce), her stand-up comic fiasco on the Jay Leno Show, please, her TV show canceled after declining rating, I guess running for Prez is the only thing she can look forward to, but since she is a coward she will only throw small minded rocks, poor thing. Since we already had an idiot “W” that caused our current economic debacle, America knows not to trust in fools who think they are brilliant. One of the reason for “W” failure was his drinking, Palin just has bad genes.
