Former half-term governor and current famous person Sarah Palin slammed Michelle Obama on Twitter today for inviting Common to the White House.
Her beef? Palin and some others aren’t thrilled that the rapper and actor promotes healthy diets once rhymed about burning President George W. Bush.
“Oh lovely, White House,” tweeted the ex-veep hopeful, making sarcastic reference to a story on Common and Michelle Obama in the Daily Caller.

Sarah Palin has a way with words. That way is … well, interesting.
Cracks and unnecessary side comments she made during an event last week, while harmless enough, continue to undermine her attempts to be taken seriously.

While not up there with Charlie Sheen quotes, this is one of Sarah’s strangest.
