We have heard worse said about that punk Rush Limbaugh on the evening news:

Wanda Sykes’ jokes at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner have caused quite an upset among political and conservative commentators who feel some of her punchlines went too far. During the daily briefing on Monday, White House spokesman, Robert Gibbs was asked about the specific joke in which Skyes spoke about Rush Limbaugh and his hopes that the Obama administration “fails,” saying that his views are no different from that of Osama Bin Laden and suggested that he may have been a 9/11 terrorist. Naturally, the White House cannot condone such a notion, and expressed disapproval, reports the Associated Press. Continue…

    Do yo thang Wanda. It was a comedy set. Everyone there knew it. Everyone outside commenting on it knew it. Are we supposed to take everything a comedian says in a ‘politically tinged’ comedy set seriously now? That’s some bull…

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Wanda! Her cameos on (i think) season 4 of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM is the shit! Go find that KRAZEE EYEZ KILLA episode now and piss yerself!

    …somehow if you are old, republican, white AND have a serious dependency to drugs it will go away with no questions asked. But if you are young, liberal, (well) white and have a serious dependency to drugs (See Amy Winehouse) you are the object of ridicule and condemnation. If you are NON-white and fall into this category, forget it! the american media will turn you into the biggest spectacle they can.

    She didn’t say anything wrong. Wanda Sykes is funny as shit!

    Ever listen to Rush? He holds nothing back, he goes hard on anyone that has a political agenda different from his. I remember him saying Chelsea Clinton(12 yrs. old at the time)looked like a dog.

    She was funny and on point. Rush is a drug addict who like terrorists want America to fail.

    oh yeah, and wanda sykes is funny and very in-your-face, she pulls no punches.
    she reminds me of whoopi in that way.

  • its the Foosa

    I dont think the issue is as much about Rush as it is about her tying him into the 9-11 hijackings. I think 9-11 is a really sensetive topic for many americans, and those that are, are not ready to laugh about anything that happened that day. I bet if she did a 5 minute tirade on Rush that didnt mention 9-11, should woulda been alright.

    I loved it. Obama can’t laugh because of politics but keep the truth comin’ Wanda. Rush and all of his cronies are treasonous terrorists. It’s about time someone said it (in public)!

    Also, remember just a couple short years ago when the Bush Admin pronounced anyone a terrorist who dared to criticize us going to war on trumped up reasons? Yeah…I do. The entire GOP can kiss my ass.

    I don’t think it was too much. I have heard comedians on BET refer to 9/11. This is what comedians are best at, making light of real life situations, making us laugh, when in reality, we should be crying. Comedy helps keep us sane, thus the saying that ‘people that laugh live longer’.
    Rush Limbaugh is a prick who has said IMO much more HURTFUL things that spew hate and division.
    Go Wanda!

    Funny that she didn’t bother to roast the president which is what usually happens at the correspondent’s dinner. President thin skinned couldn’t take it so they just made fun of conservatives. That’s like … so original and funny.
