Obama at the White House Correspondents Din Din

After I watched the video of Wanda Sykes at the White House Correspondents Dinner it made me think back about the previous eight years of the Bush presidency and how much pent up frustration there was in our country.

Now fast forward to the Wanda Sykes delivering her monologue and I think she was sort of a microcosm of all of that frustration delivered in this nice petite ball of comedic fire ready to pounce and boy did she pounce!



Now I know those right wing media outlets are ready to call out the militia after
she left the podium but really what do they expect they have been shoving there
right wing bullshit down our throats for the last eight years.

Lets Recap:

2 wars

John Ashcroft

Donald Rumsfeld

The Patriot act

Fox News

etc...

So if Wanda Sykes wants to rail on Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity or anybody else from that right wing media cabal I say go for it, and if the president has one of those laugh so hard his side hurts moments all the better he's been sucking up the last eight years with rest of us.

Wanda your my hero.

I didn't see her speech. I thought it was pretty pathetic that the White House felt the need to make an official statement about her joke about Rush being the 20th terrorist, saying that it was inappropriate.

I agree, it was suppose to be a joke.
