Im sure the president found some of her jokes somewhat awkward and uncomfortable (especially about Rush), but Wanda was looking at him through all the jokes...what else could he really do? He just smiled and waited until it was over.... there were very funny things said by Wanda too though. and Rush crosses the line all the time...and hes serious. At least Wanda is joking.

Whoops! Browser Settings Incompatible


YouTube - WH Correspondents' Dinner: Wanda Sykes thinks Rush Limbaugh is a fine fellow.

The excuse of this being a "joke" won't work here. This crosses the line.

Just imagine if the tables were turned...



oh.


my.

GOD!




at least it's no "Barack, The Magic Negro."

you know what's actually offensive?


YouTube - Bush Jokes about WMD


joking about non-existent, fabricated WMDs that were used as the very basis of an invasion that caused the death of thousands of americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis.

that, my friend, crosses the line.

But but but... he's conservative!

Don't you get it, it's a game. Bush spends, but since he has an 'R' by his name it doesn't count. When a 'D' spends it's time for tea parties. When a 'D' laughs it's offensive. And if you're gay, or caught up in a scandal they just change the 'R' to a 'D'...

It's a very simple game.

The GOP staffers in attendance quoted in the Post's political blog all said they thought Sykes was fine until she got onto the topic of Limbaugh and his "I hope he fails" comments, at which point she went over the line.

Sounds about right to me. I see little reason to get highly worked up over a comedian's over-the-line jabs at a media personality who's himself known for mean-spirited humor, though.

at least she didn't mock Rush like he did Michael J. Fox.

Who's lucky? And who else would have been the "fall girl" for a joke SHE made...

Well Obama alluded to the 9/11 panic that the AF One flyover caused. Blaming his kids.

did anyone die? like thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis? or was Obama making light of an embarrassing incident that was universally acknowledged as foolish? do right-wingers have anything -- anything!-- to add to the current national conversation?

You have to be kidding. Obama made a funny harmless joke about his kids using air force one. To somehow tie it into fearmongering, 911, tragedy, deaths, etc... is absolutely ridiculous. Dont we have better political things to talk about? how come every time a real important issue comes up, some little controversy about who said what takes over. I almost feel like the republicans are using every little person they can complain about or blame anyone for anything to try and hide the fact that they have no new ideas. And some democrats do the same thing...its just politics as usual.

I think the GOP needs to steer clear of Rush, Coulter, Hannity, and other "extremist." They take the focus away from the real issue and always turn it into some other silly controversy to distract people. Same thing happened during the campaign. And the same goes for liberals too, but I just dont feel that the liberals are as obnoxious or downright insane like Rush, Coulter, Hannity, Michael Savage, Bill O, etc...
