How far have we fallen since the days of Reagan?
Here’s a good indication. The “poet” Common has been invited to the White House tonight. This poet has written about killing President Bush, shooting police and even dedicated a poem (A Song for Assata), to fugitive NJ State Trooper killer Joanne Chesimard who has been a guest in Castro’s Cuba since the 1980s.
Incredibly, this “poet” is eerily similar in tone and content to Tyrone Greene, a character played as a joke by Eddie Murphy on Saturday Night Live in the 1980s.

How far have we fallen? Looks like we might have another joke in the White House tonight. But these jokes are all too real.
