Wanda Sykes at the White House Correspondents Dinner
she took on Rush Limbaugh, accusing him of “treason” for saying that “he hopes this administration fails.”
“I think maybe Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker, but he was just strung out on OxyContin and missed his flight,” she said, to cheers and nervous groans (boos). “Too much?”
But then she continued anyway. “Rush Limbaugh. ‘I hope the country fails’? I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs some more waterboarding, that’s what he needs.”
This is SO typical. What has happened to comedians in this country? Can't they just be funny? She had a great schtick going there for awhile, but then she had to get vulgar and hateful. There was absolutely no reason for her to go down that road. Unless . . . . . she was directed to. But that would never happen in the Obama Administration, would it?
Can you imagine what would happen if Rush made similar comments about her? Rush never said ANYTHING about the COUNTRY failing. What he DID say was he hoped Obama's spend and tax policies fail so the country would succeed. And so do I. She crossed the line. But who's surprised? The fear the left has of Rush Limbaugh is amazing, and probably justified. Anyway, she'll get away with it, because she's . . . . a liberal.
