Much Worse Than Common at White House

The White House appearance of Common went off without a hitch last night... except for the fact that America is forced to live with the fact that his "art" has been embossed with the seal of the President of the United States. 

Although Common, real name Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr, has been widely praised for his positive messages, rightwingers have homed in on the song about Assata Shakur, who was found guilty of the New Jersey shooting in 1973. She escaped from jail in 1979 and has since been in exile in Cuba.
