You would think after releasing his birth certificate and getting rid of Osama bin Laden, President Obama would be spared frivolous non-issue attacks by conservative pundits on Fox News for at least a little while.
Last week, Michelle Obama organized a poetry event at the White House in which she invited Grammy award-winning rapper Common to perform and Fox News went on the attack.
Fox lambasted this invite, calling Common a "vile" and "controversial" rapper and condemning the president for associating himself with him.
Being a fan of Common myself, I was infuriated by this.......
This is the final appearance of "Wes Side Story." Wesley Dugle is a Spartan Daily Staff Writer.

My Dentist and his family from Hawaii went to school with President Obama! They were over developed in some of the world's most beautiful and peaceful cultures-- religions, art, sciences, philosophies, and beautiful, peaceful, pastoral ways of life. I know that this equality, this oneness of the races, this love between the brethren, this better world, cannot be found only through the path of legislation and politics. Itcertainly cannot be found through the path of violence and killing, and the destruction of our young people. It cannot be found when the brothers are pitted one against another in useless, wasteful neighborhood wars. I know that to become a reality is to love, the supernatural Love of God!
