Sarah Palin Says She Knows the Lyrics to 'Rapper's Delight'

"I'm not anti-rap. In fact, like Bret Baier, I know the lyrics to 'Rapper's Delight,' too."

-- Sarah Palin on the conservative controversy around the rapper Common's invitation to appear at the White House's Poetry Night on Wednesday, flashing some alleged knowledge about the Bar-Mitzvah friendly Sugarhill Gang. Palin had spoken up through her Twitter account about the event, and went on Fox News last night to deride the White House for inviting the rapper. With questions surfacing on Twitter, a new conspiracy may be born about Palin's hip-hop credentials, as incredulous Tweeters demanded to know: where is the video evidence? Check out the original statement from On the Record here. It's also worth pointing out that, at over 14 minutes, "Rapper's Delight" is a very long song with a lot of lyrics to know.
