Wanda Sykes is funny!

Below is a hilarious clip by Wanda Sykes at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner. It seems some stuffed shirt conservatives are mad because she joked that she hopes Rush Limbaugh dies of kidney failure. That Wanda always cracks me up!


  1. There was quite a bit of controversy here about her remarks. Lines were crossed there that should not have been crossed, even though she had her defenders on the sunday morning lineup.

    The bigger issue is that our comics are not taking on Obama at all, really. He's like "off limits" to the comedian set still. That's troubling. I think in part it has to do with race -- the taboo making fun of a successful (half) black man. And in part I think it's because the comedian community largely sympathizes with him, and is reluctant to criticize him or poke fun at him in any meaningful way. That's unfortunate, because that kind of ribbing is one of the things that keeps people usefully skeptical of our leadership -- rather than the personality cult I think we are seeing right now.

  2. I almost feel guilty laughing at this.


  3. Well, Wanda is a professional comdedian.

  4. I am not big Rush fan but wishing somebody were dead is pretty sad.
