We touched on the \"Common Controversy\" yesterday, and called it silly. After re-thinking it a little bit, I think the White House sends a message as to who they invite to visit them and who they associate themselves with. The Bush administration would NEVER do something like that: O wait!
In case you don’t know who National Security Advisor Condi’s “good friend” is, Equatorial Guinean President Teodoro Obiang Nguema. Nguema is “one of the most brutal, most corrupt and unreconstructed dictators in the world”;
PS: I want to be clear that I am NOT comparing Common to Teodoro Obiang Nguema at ALL. I still think the “Common story” is the ultimate non-story. I am just pointing out the incredible hypocrisy and fake outrage of the right wing echo chambers and Fox “news”.
