Sykes Hopes Limbaughs Kidneys Fail And Olbermann Waterboards Hannity 2009: Newsbuster Tim

Sykes Hopes Limbaughs Kidneys Fail and Olbermann Waterboards Hannity

NewsBuster Tim Graham Saturday if comedienne Wanda Sykes, appearing at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, would really make fun of President Barack
Obama or go all gentle. Well, the answer is likely worse than any of us could have imagined, for Sykes used this platform to attack conservatives rather than the person who is historically roasted at this event. In fact, her only real knocks on Obama were that he’s constantly being photographed with his shirt off, and that if he screws up, everybody will blame it on “the half white guy!” After some respectful and largely complimentary jokes about the President, including how he’s really not all that great on the basketball court, Sykes attacked Republicans, conservative pundits, and white people (video part I embedded right, part II below the fold with some lowlights): Nice roasting, Wanda. So this is the picture of a more united and tolerant America I don’t know about you, but I’ve never felt more isolated.
