"Maybe Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker but he was so strung out on Oxycontin he missed his flight... I hope his kidneys fail."

That's the Wanda Sykes joke from the White House Correspondents' Association dinner. I'm sure Rush is chortling as he prepares his opening monologue for today's radio show, which will have more than the usual number of listeners. He'll be all why are they always talking about me? and loving it.

I'll update this post when the show starts.

UPDATE: Sorry, I had a computer problem at the beginning of the show. Later, he was talking about Dick Cheney and then Nancy Pelosi — on the torture topic. Did he start with Sykes? I'm guessing he didn't now.

Did Obama laugh at that? I'm sure Limbaugh will find it stimulating, but I find it repugnant. Have there been jokes about the death of political enemies at any of these State/Media Collusion Mixers before?

Fen said...

I curious why Obama was laughing over "I hope his kidneys fail and he dies".

Or perhaps it was light, relative to all the "jokes" he heard about killing off whitey and the Jews while he sat in front of Ayers.

"I Hope his kidneys fail"Hope and Change, baby. Hope and Change.

TRO said...

Sad, and scary, thing is that they really DO believe Rush is as dangerous as Osama.

Such pathetic fools.

Fen said...

Palladian: Did Obama laugh at that?Yah, he did. DustBunny earlier linked to an account from a UK journo who's not in the tank:

I really hate this fricken Blogger line break bugs . I hope its kidneys fail and it dies.

Bissage said...

Maybe Wanda Sykes was the 20th hijacker but she was so high on crack and getting rough anal from the Chicago Bulls that she missed her flight . . . I hope their huge dicks perforated her colon.

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!11!!!1!!!!!!!!!

PHEW!!!

** catches breath **

Fen said...

From the UK link:

"Obama seemed to think this bit was pretty hilarious, grinning and chuckling and turning to share the 'joke' with the person sitting on his right."

1jpb said...

I hope the outraged conservictims EQUALLY split their outrage between Wanda Sykes and David Feherty.

Crybabies.

1jpb said...

And, she also joked about Pelosi trying to have BHO and Biden killed. Where's the conservictim outrage?

And BHO joked that HRC was trying to kill him w/ Swine Flu. Where's the conservictim outrage?

Crybabies.

JAL said...

It's the new updated version of Animal House hardy-har-har-har.

And don't forget how cool Rahm Emmanuel looked walking around with his jacket casually slung over his shoulder.

Cool. Oh so cool. Wow. Oh double wow. Funny. Sooooo funny! Wow.

Cool and soooo funny.

When does "clueless" -- or is it "classless?" -- become "evil?"

Curtiss said...

I wonder if Wanda Sykes' material was made available to Obama's people in advance. I don't know.

What makes people think it's a good idea to make tasteless and mean jokes about people who aren't present at a forum such as the WHCA Dinner? I think I know the answer to that one.

The unintended consequences will be entertaining. Maybe more than Wanda Sykes.

Hoosier Daddy said...

I'm sure Rush is chortling as he prepares his opening monologue for today's radio show.

That is the truth. I think the biggest problem liberals have with Rush is that can't get his goat. The more they insult him, the more he eats it up. The worst thing that could happen to Rush is the left actually wisen up and ignore him.

BTW, who the hell is Wanda Sykes anyway?

BJK said...

With all due respect, you can get a transplant for a failing kidney.

lacegrl130 said...

As I said - Rush can take it and as Synova said, Rush will $profit$ from it. Good for him. Rush ain't no joke weenie.

Palladian said...

"I hope the outraged conservictims EQUALLY split their outrage between Wanda Sykes and David Feherty."

Do you think it's funny to make jokes about political opponents dying at taxpayer-funded dinners? Do you think that's something that the President of the United States should be seen laughing at? Do you think it's funny to make jokes about drug addiction?

Ok then.

Do you think Barack Obama did a few lines of coke off of Demi Moore's tits last night? I hope his septum falls out!

You're right, it is hilarious!

John said...

This is who liberals are and this is what they find funny. If you don't like it, don't hang around liberals. Liberals found the joke funny and liberals find the idea of their ideological opponents dying horrible deaths to be a pleasent and humorous prospect. What else can you say? I guess I would have to be surprised or learn something new to be outraged by this.

Fen said...

And you can die from kidney failure.

So whats your point?

Palladian said...

"With all due respect, you can get a transplant for a failing kidney."

Not under the coming ObamaCare, he can't!

Hoosier Daddy said...

I hope the outraged conservictims EQUALLY split their outrage between Wanda Sykes and David Feherty..

Whose outraged? I'll bet even money Rush is laughing his ass off. I'm not outraged in the least. It's difficult to be outraged when the opposition acts in its prescribed manner.

TMink said...

When the last president did this sort of thing, the jokes were at his expense, and he laughed, having the ego strength to laugh at himself.

Now the jokes are about those who oppose the president.

Draw your own conclusions.

Trey

Fen said...

1jpb: Crybabies.

What are whining about now, JP?

I hope your kidneys fail and you die.

I hope your mother hemorrhages to death after being gangraped.

I hope you die a horrible death.

Hahahahaha! How funny!

Hope and Change baby.

MadisonMan said...

I think next year they should re-hire Rich Little.

Interesting althouse takes on past Dinners are here, here, and here.

I will not link to Rich Little from last year. You can thank me by way of check, cash or money order.

As for Rush, I agree that he is laughing all the way to the bank, and God Bless America for that. Free Speech doesn't have to be tasteful, as many comedians frequently demonstrate, but feel free to keep wringing your hands and wailing about that nasty Wanda. She is so mean to poor (well, not really) Rush.

MadisonMan said...

Oops, Rich Little was 2 years ago. Still won't link to it.

garage mahal said...

Some woman made a joke about us. Whaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! MOM!!!!!!!

Fen said...

Hey, its the new comedy, stamped with Obama's approval. And I'm sure all our friends here on the Left will aprreciate our humour.

Hey? Where's Beth? I hope you drown in the next storm surge! Ha ha ha!

Palladian said...

Tucked inside Frank Rich’s Sunday column in the New York Times is indication that the newspaper will no longer attend the annual White House Correspondents Association dinners in Washington, which he calls “a crystallization of the press’s failures in the post-9/11 era.” He writes that the event “illustrates how easily a propaganda-driven White House can enlist the Washington news media in its shows.”

“After last weekend’s correspondents’ dinner, The Times decided to end its participation in such events,” wrote Rich. “But even were the dinner to vanish altogether, it remains but a yearly televised snapshot of the overall syndrome. The current White House, weakened as it is, can still establish story lines as fake as ‘Mission Accomplished’ and get a free pass.”

LOLZ

Fen said...

garage mahal: Some woman made a joke about us. Whaaaaaaa!No. Hoping for your death is now the new funny.

Hope you get AIDS and die, garage. Hardy har!

Palladian said...

"I will not link to Rich Little from last year. You can thank me by way of check, cash or money order."

Wow, is Rich Little still alive?

1jpb said...

When the last president did this sort of thing, the jokes were at his expense, and he laughed, having the ego strength to laugh at himself.Let's have more fun jokes about looking for WMD under the Christmas tree (or where ever it was that W was looking in his joke) at the exact moment that our military are dying for the WMD fabrication (yellow cake?, the next time it could be a mushroom cloud?). Really funny stuff.

Palladian said...

"Hope you get AIDS and die, garage. Hardy har!"

He's got a better chance of getting AIDS than he does of getting a tag from Althouse.

And frankly I can see why. He makes "Jeremy" seem literate and interesting.

Fen said...

MM: She is so mean to poor (well, not really) Rush..

Ah I see, its all good because Rush is rich. Nice "oops" there Madison.

montana urban legend said...

"Maybe Wanda Sykes was the 20th hijacker but she was so high on crack and getting rough anal from the Chicago Bulls that she missed her flight . . . I hope their huge dicks perforated her colon."

Wanda Sykes is a lesbian who has never been linked to the Chicago Bulls or crack. But thanks for offering us a view of your warped mind.

"Do you think it's funny to make jokes about drug addiction?"

"Do you think Barack Obama did a few lines of coke off of Demi Moore's tits last night? I hope his septum falls out!"

Evidence that Obama was an addict - or is this just more of your stereotyping?

Factless, humorless fools. And losers. Enjoy your anger for the next 40 years - or however long it takes you to get over FDR, the Cold War and the other currently irrelevant historical reference points that you're obsessed with.

garage mahal said...

Mommy! Daddy! Don't these mean liberals know Rush Limbaugh would never make front of a black person or a woman? Sheesh!

MadisonMan said...

Fen, can I put words in your mouth too?

I don't say it's good. In fact, if you read my words -- you know, those things I wrote? -- you'll see that I say it's tasteless.

Fen said...

"Maybe Elizabeth Edwards was part of the threeway, but she was so strung out from chemo that John and Reille started without her... I hope her kidneys fail and she dies"

Comedy Gold!

Fen said...

Madison: Fen, can I put words in your mouth too?Well MM, why did you bring class warfare into it? Wasn't necessary to your overall point. You always argue in good faith, so I'll take you at your word - you didn't mean it that way. Okay. But you have to admit it looks like a slip up from here.

Fen said...

Sorry, repost, I'm still loving this one:

"Maybe Elizabeth Edwards was part of the threeway, but she was so strung out from chemo that John and Reille started without her... I hope her kidneys fail and she dies"

Too funny!

Lem said...

I'll update this post when the show starts.

Excellent.

I can't listen to him from work.

Jen said...

According to the consummate Republican, Limbaugh is the model conservative.

http://bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aUXi5cHxSSGw&refer=home

Apparently you have to drink the Kool-Aid in order to be a REAL Republican.

Can we just stop paying attention to this dweeb? Please?

Fen said...

Sure Jen. Right after you tell us what you think "conservative" means.

John said...

Fen

No one who pays attention was offended or surprised by Sykes. She is a typical liberal. I have no doubt that most liberals find the thought of their ideological opponents dying a horrible death to be quire funny. I am also quite sure that if it wasn't for the proscriptions of laws, most liberals would gladly administer such a death. It is just who you people are. Being outraged about Sykes is like being outraged about a Tiger having stripes and eating deer for a living. It doesn't make a lot of sense.

MadisonMan said...

Wow, is Rich Little still alive?

A common reaction.

Whatever you do, DO NOT WATCH the youtube link within the link above.

John said...

And also, I wouldn't fuck Wanda Sykes with Michelle Obama's dick.

garage mahal said...

At least we have all the conservative comedians to fall back on. Like.....who's that guy....well you know who I mean!

Palladian said...

"Whatever you do, DO NOT WATCH the youtube link within the link above."

Ahhhh!!! Too late!

Ugh!

Jen said...

Fen:

Did you read what Cheney said? That man is just creepy.

Almost creepier than John.

1jpb said...

Garage,

Beck does comedy shows. I'm not being facetious, he really does these in addition to his radio and TV show.

Fen said...

Jen: Did you read what Cheney said? That man is just creepy.No. What did he say? Please provide a link (not a huffpo revisionism).

John said...

"At least we have all the conservative comedians to fall back on. Like.....who's that guy....well you know who I mean!"

Yes, so now the entire media and entertainment establishment can work in support of a sitting government. Nothing creepy about that. What is stunning about the Dinner was not Sykes, who just said what most liberals believe. What is stunning is that it is supposed to be a roast of the current administration. Yet, all the jokes, except Obama's were about the previous administration. I guess in 2012 they will still be making Bush Cheney jokes. It is like they were afraid to make fun of dear leader without his permission. That is creepy.

William said...

How did it come to pass that Rush Limbaugh became the face of the Republican party, and Nancy Pelosi exists on some astral plane diffent from all other Democrats?...This is a winning strategy for the Democrats. The more Republicans like Cheney come to Rush's defense, the more Rush becomes a kind of official spokesman for all things Republican. I listen to Rush with frequency and enjoyment but 51% of the American populace will never embrace his views. Can't we all just say mean spirited things about Nancy Pelosi and leave Rush alone?

Oh, you mean when Cheney says he would take Limbaugh over Powell?

Your linked parsed him. He qualified it "politically", ie not in all circumstances.

Of course, if you read the MSM, you likely missed that. No worries. They'll keep feeding you with a shovel, and you'll keep swallowing bullshit.

I'd rather just be an angry loser Republican. But thanks for the meditation.

John said...

"I'd rather just be an angry loser Republican. But thanks for the meditation."


As opposed to Dems who routinely joke and laugh about people that disagree with them dying. You clowns own the government, the media, the entertainment industry and all of academia but you are still angry and bitter. Do you know any other way to be?

Whine away!

"You clowns own the government, the media, the entertainment industry and all of academia but you are still angry and bitter. Do you know any other way to be?"

Geez John, that didn't sound angry and bitter AT ALL!

montana urban legend said...

Aarrgghhh! Don't vote Democrat! It's a conspiracy!

Vote Republican instead. The oil companies that are completely in their pockets are so much better for our national security than the entertainment industry!

John said...

"This is stunning? It's common. In 2001, the host was Darrell Hammond. Guess who was his most famous impression?"


Do you honestly think next year or the year after will be any different? Especially after Obama bails out the newspapers and he is literally paying their salary? Name one person in the media who is considered mainstream and not a rabid right winger who will so much as make a joke letalone a serious critism of Obama? It just isn't done.

Paul Zrimsek said...

Oil is a strategic resource (know why the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor? Hint: it wasn't because they hated us for our freedoms), entertainment is not.

Thank you.

John said...

"Geez John, that didn't sound angry and bitter AT ALL!"


Who cares if it did? You just dodge the point. The point is that Dems won and they still are angy and bitter and laugh at the idea of their opponents dying. Saying "you are bitter to" doesn't respond to the point or say anything relevent.

Moreover, there is nothing angry or bitter about point out the obvious. I am not the one joking about people's deaths or defending those who do. You are. Calling everyone else bitter, doesn't take away from or have anything to do with your own behavior. As I said above, Sykes was just saying what most liberals believe. It am not angry about it. That is just the way it is.

Fen said...

See. Paul understands the diff. Good one too.

bumped and framed:

"Maybe Elizabeth Edwards was part of the threeway, but she was so strung out from chemo that John and Reille started without her... I hope her kidneys fail and she dies"

Rose said...

Obama isn't funny. His jokes are uncomfortable and not funny. His self-centeredness comes through loud and clear.

As for Wanda Sykes - too bad. I liked her. But no more.

I hope Napolitano puts her on the Terrorist watchlist.

TitusTheCabaret said...

Learn to be the witness of your thoughts and emotions which is an essential part of being present.

Aww...garage has posted some good stuff here. He deserves a tag!

You know, garage, there are tags galore - and flattering ones to be found elsewhere. ;-)

MadisonMan said...

Rose, Obama isn't a comedian. He's a politician, and they're only good at getting themselves elected. Some are funny (or can at least tell a joke) because that's their election shtick -- Reagan comes to mind. Obama doesn't need to be funny because he has other skills that help him in elections.

Trooper York said...

You see women are just not funny.

If you want to see how horrible a comedian Wanda Sykes is in a non-political setting, catch the New Adventures of Old Christine on CBS where she is the second banana.

It is hall of fame cringe worthy.

Trooper York said...

If Mort were awake he would say calling a second banana is racist.

AJ Lynch said...

Fen is on a roll today:

"Hey? Where's Beth? I hope you drown in the next storm surge! Ha ha ha!"

LOL- I spit soda on my desk Fen.

Trooper York said...

Titus I want you to know that my Chaka Kahn's are alined properly today. Thank you.

Jen said...

John said, "the entertainment industry and all of academia but you are still angry and bitter. Do you know any other way to be?"

and THEN he said, "The point is that Dems won and they still are angy and bitter and laugh at the idea of their opponents dying. Saying "you are bitter to" doesn't respond to the point or say anything relevent [sic]."

and THEN he said, "Calling everyone else bitter, doesn't take away from or have anything to do with your own behavior."

hmmmmmmmmm. Are you angry and/or bitter?

John said...

No Jen I am not. But way to dodge the question again. My state of mind has nothing to do with your state of mind. But you know that. You are just not bright enough to argue that point so have instead decided to be a troll.

Trooper York said...

I will amend my statement to say that there is one woman preforming today who is pretty funny. And that is Lisa Lampanelli. She would have been perfect for this roast. But the weeines of the main stream media would have pissed their panties.

Darcy said...

Psst! John...it ain't sinking in. Futile. ;-)

Trooper York said...

Of course one of Lisa Lampanelli's main comic riffs is how she loves to have dirty sex with black guys.
So the main stream media wouldn't have laughed anyway. They just would have nodded and said me too!

Trooper York said...

If Mort was awake he would ask me if I had Lisa Lampanelli's phone number.

garage mahal said...

Aw thanks Dracy. But I'm not a quitter. Unlike *ahem* some other A listers here who received tags and left in a huff.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

I don't really care about Rush, he can take care of himself. What I find offensive is using 9/11 as the basis for partisan political jokes It disgusts me that the leader of our country would find this humorous.

Trooper York said...

Not garage mahal. He goes away for a little bit and then he shows up when you least expect him. Like herpes. Heh.

John said...

"Of course one of Lisa Lampanelli's main comic riffs is how she loves to have dirty sex with black guys.
So the main stream media wouldn't have laughed anyway. They just would have nodded and said me too!"

A few "Obama has a big schlong and likes to do the nasty" jokes would have been really funny, especially if made by a top shelf white girl.

MadisonMan said...

Trooper, was Chaka in for a fitting today? You are lucky.

garage mahal said...

Darcy. Not Dracy. LOL.

montana urban legend said...

Before I'm done previewing this, let me just say that Trooper is right. Lisa Lampanelli is hilarious.

For the rest, I predict a booming business for psychiatrists specializing in the treatment of anger management issues for conservative clients. 2011 will be known as the year that the conservatives went to therapy. Don't worry. It won't make you -- gasp -- weak! Even Metallica went to therapy.

Doesn't it suck when you don't get to define what constitutes polite society and civilized behavior simply to suit yourself and your own caprice?

Trooper York said...

Oh to explain that joke to hd house for later when he gets on the computer after the home care attendant goes to the bodega, the main stream media want's to have dirty sex with one paticular black guy.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

mcg said...

Trooper: Damn straight. Lisa Lampanelli knows how to roast. And she'll never get the invite.

Trooper York said...

I do want to say that even though we almost never agree on anything, Montana Urban Legend has a very good blog that I wish he would write on more often. I like to hear from someone who is totally different from me. We do agree on some stuff but the differences is what makes the stew spicy. Nobody is all of a piece and you would enjoy a lot of his posts.

I would link to it but the professor gets pissed off if I link to anyone else except for her blog. She's funny that way. Heh.

Jen said...

John: So is your question, "Why do dems think it's funny when a comedian delivers a joke about a republican's death? And why do the morally upright republicans never ever think a joke like that is funny?"

Because that's never happened before.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Let's have more fun jokes about looking for WMD under the Christmas tree (or where ever it was that W was looking in his joke) at the exact moment that our military are dying for the WMD fabrication.

I'm always touched by the concern the left has for our boys and girls in uniform.

When they're not suspecting them of being domestic terrorists that is.

montana urban legend said...

The best Lisa Lampanelli was her roast of Pam Anderson. Unfortunately, Comedy Central goes nuts with copyright restrictions and makes it nearly impossible to view that clip - except in an edited version on their own, clunky, 54k speed website.

Sofa King said...

MAL: Conservatives don't go to therapy, they go hunting.

montana urban legend said...

Trooper - you're the best.

If we can agree on Lisa Lampanelli, then no gap is unbridgeable. But then again, Lisa Lampanelli could probably get the Hutus and Tutsis to make peace. Or the Hatfields and the McCoys, for that matter.

MayBee said...

The Oxycontin thing is an exceptionally good zinger, especially for that audience.

There is nothing Hollywood people find more repulsive than drug use.

TitusTheCabaret said...

Trooper so glad to hear about your Chaka Khan's. That is definitely being in the Present if they are aligned.

Love Lisa Lampinelli. She is Now.

I wish for everyone here is to Bring more Consiousness into their Life Now.

Being,
Ever Present

NOW.

thank you.

John said...

"Doesn't it suck when you don't get to define what constitutes polite society and civilized behavior simply to suit yourself and your own caprice?"

So basically you can't think of any substantive way to defend Sykes' jokes other than "we can do it and so it must be great". Anyone who says "I think it is a really bad idea for the President to be laughing at jokes about his opponents' deaths" is just angry and bitter right?

That is a pretty dangerous and delluded attitude isn't it? Question, is there any joke that Sykes could have made about a Republican that would in your mind be condisered out of line? Anything? Further, if there isn't, then is it okay for Republicans to make the same kind of jokes back at Democrats? If not, then really what you are saying is that Republicans have no right of free speech and any abuse heaped on them is permissible and anything they do in return is unpermissible, which is a pretty crazy way to look at things.

Trooper York said...

You have to catch the Comedy Central roast when they replay them especially the Pam Anderson one. That was really funny. And as I recall the late Bea Arthur was on it and was unbelievably funny in a dead pan sort of way that Wanda Sykes was going for but failed miserably at in these clips.

TitusTheCabaret said...

I am in the NOW when I say Bad Trooper about the linky winky thingey.

Have you repented?

I watched Doubt this weekend and loved it. Streep tour de force.

mcg said...

Here's a decent copy of the Pam Anderson roast. Warning: this clip defines the phrase "NSFW for language."

Trooper York said...

"But then again, Lisa Lampanelli could probably get the Hutus and Tutsis to make peace. Or the Hatfields and the McCoys, for that matter."

Well she would just do a three way with the Hutus and the Tutsis so that would be easy. But I don't know about the Hatfields and the McCoys. I don't think she does toothless hillbilly sex.

That's Larry the Cable Guy.

montana urban legend said...

Hey -- I've got nothing against hunting. I respect that. Some species need an occasional human check on their numbers other than extinction. And if you like to eat 'em, that's cool too.

But come on. You can't blow off all the steam through a barrel of a gun, I'd imagine. That might become cumbersome, especially during the wrong season and when a nearby range isn't handy.

Hoosier Daddy said...

I have no doubt that most liberals find the thought of their ideological opponents dying a horrible death to be quire funny..

That reminds me of a former co-worker who confessed to me that she celebrated with multiple martinis when Reagan died.

Rush rises above the fray. The unspoken question "Wanda who?"

The Lady Bunny was there too.

Bea Arthur read from Pamela Anderson's book and it was hilarious.

Ah, but where are gun ranges scarce and therapists plentiful? Big cities! How many conservatives are there in these cities, proportionally? Not many! Coincidence?

mcg said...

Well damn, if I'd only known that's all it takes!

MadisonMan said...

The last joke of Lampanelli's roast of Gene Simmons was way too predictable (although I was thinking Paul McCartney, not John Lennon, as the answer).

Her Clay Aiken video is funny though.

Trooper York said...

You are so right Montana. You see we are losing sight of the main issue. Funny is funny. Wanda Sykes was just not funny. Ever. Her reputation as a comedian is as valid as John Edwards for chastity, Sarah Jessica Parker for beauty and George Will for sagacity. Vastly overstated.

I am sure that there are plenty of funny jokes we could devise about Rush and Obama and their connections both in the political and media sense. But Wanda Sykes would never come up with them.

Trooper York said...

Just a little joke among us Christians.

He was joking, right?

Oh.

It's interesting how quickly the commenters here -- on both the left and the right -- got so thoroughly distracted by mutual accusations of humorlessness, nastiness, bitterness, jealousy, meanness, cry-baby-hood, etcetera, that everyone seems to have forgotten what seems to me to be the central issue in this anecdote: that the President laughed at this vile stuff! I don't know who Ms. Sykes is, and I don't care, and I don't care which party she was going after. I don't care whether Obama was laughing at a joke aimed at a Republican, a Democrat, a Communist, a Social Democrat, a Fascist, or a Hottentot -- but whoever it was,

the President of the United States should not find it funny, ever, when anyone jokes that anyone should get kidney failure and die.

Seriously. Isn't that obvious?

Rush didn't mention it, instead returning Cheney's Sunday compliment, along with the lesson that the most despised is usually the truth teller, and the most loved the liar.

I doubt he'll mention Sykes, a rare case of alignment of good character and commercial retaliation. Why give her the time of day.

montana urban legend said...

Even Palladian agrees re: Lampanelli's Pam Anderson roast? Now I'm convinced that some alignment of cosmic proportions has been achieved.

But on a lighter note, here's a hilarious clip of Joe Biden washing his Trans Am in the White House driveway.

Chip Ahoy said...

This is making me sad.

I was counting on modern day so-called liberals reaching for and finding their inner maturity once they finally had total control of House, Senate and Executive branch. Now is the time to grow up and actually become adults because everything they hold dear in their hearts is at stake. And it's all about what's in their hearts, isn't it? It's now, or it's never. I should have known better since that control was wrested by kicking and screaming and by constant baby-like bitching and moaning for eight solid years straight through. Silly of me to think their tactics would change once in power.

That's OK. The population generally will be sick of them all soon enough.

I'ts simply not possible to be taken seriously about preening morally over waterboarding three very dangerous enemies of state at the moment in time when another attack was expected following the greatest attack on a US civilian population in its history, and then make jokes at a state-funded dinner about wishing your domestic opposition to die of kidney failure. It does reinforce, though, that the left sees all of its enemies to its immediate right, and none beyond their own noses. Sorry. No crybaby here, no outrage either, just disappointment and sadness that the maturity needed for this historic moment is not present.

And we're to be subjected to lessons on glamour from one of Europe's greatest hags? Pathetic. Why was that woman there anyway?

I've always liked Sykes, and I understand her emotional investment in the success of Obama's administration. I wish the best for him and for her, but I do not see that happening. Obama appears to be exceedingly narcissistic. There's a fault line that will crack. I see him attack his domestic enemies the way Bush refused to do to the right's dismay. Imagine Bush making cracks, or having comedians do it for him, about Michael Moore who stated flatly his goal was to see Bush's policies fail. Like it or not, and I don't, as president Bush had more class than that. As an objective observer of these two regrettably miserable political parties, and why you would align with either one is beyond me, Bush has more class in his little finger than Obama has entirely. I can see Obama can dish out ridicule but like all despots his ego too fragile to take any. That's his Achilles' heel. I'll be surprised if this administration lasts a second term. A shame because it takes at least that long for anything great. Go on, surprise me.

Trooper York said...

It just means that funny is funny. If you want to be outrageous you can push it as far as you want as long as it is funny.

The mainsteam media who ran this event fucked it up as usual. They went the safe route. That's why a douche bag like Mark Russell is consider funny in Washington.

1jpb said...

Mrs,

Folks laughed at this, and they laughed at Pelosi plotting to kill BHO and Biden, and they laughed at HRC trying to kill BHO w/ Swine Flu, and they laughed at Dick shooting his friend (laughing about that was also committed by Bushies during the Bush years, which was when W also told a funny about sending our military to die because of fabricated WMD (yellow cake? the next one could be a mushroom cloud?) that may have been under the stuff).

"One pictured Mr Bush looking under a piece of furniture in the Oval Office, at which the president remarked: "Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be here somewhere."

After another one, showing him scouring the corner of a room, Mr Bush said: "No, no weapons over there," he said.

And as a third picture, this time showing him leaning over, appeared on the screen the president was heard to say: "Maybe under here?"

The audience at Wednesday's 60th annual dinner of the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association obviously thought the quips hilarious - there were laughs all round..."

How about this fun (via Sully) from not too long ago:

"Absolutely determined that a good time would be had by all, and equally determined to bring down the house, Richard Nixon appeared as the final act. The curtain pulled back to reveal the president and Vice President Spiro Agnew seated at two modest black pianos (Dwight Chapin at the White House had requested grand pianos or at least baby grands but the Statler Hilton could only manage uprights). This was the first time a chief executive had appeared on the Gridiron stage, and Nixon opened by asking: "What about this 'southern strategy' we hear so often?" "Yes suh, Mr. President," Agnew replied, "Ah agree with you completely on yoah southern strategy." The dialect, as Wilkins observed, got the biggest boffo.

After more banter with the "darky" Agnew, Nixon opened the piano duet with Franklin Roosevelt's favorite song ("Home on the Range"), then Harry Truman's ("Missouri Waltz"), then Lyndon Johnson's ("The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You"). Agnew, drowned him out a few bars into each with a manic Dixie on his piano, and the Gridiron crew got louder and louder. "The crowd ate" it up," Wilkins observed. "They roared.""

Did you fuss about David Feherty's Pelosi joke?

You conservictims sure are crybabies.

Palladian said...

I wouldn't mind if he found it funny if someone joked about Ahmadinejad dying of kidney failure.

Doesn't surprise me that this classless clueless admin would hire a no talent garbage brained black lesbian to speak so they could yuk it up.
An intelligent, well-spoken black comedian (like Bill Cosby) wouldn't even consider appearing before these low brow thugs, bullies and haters.

Oh, but mrs whatsit...it was a joke! We all just need to have Wanda Sykes and Obama's exquisite sense of humor or seek therapy, don't you know? We just don't get it. ;-)

Chip, I don't think that the White House Correspondent's Dinner is State funded. I thought it was hosted by the White House earlier, but it seems I was wrong about that. If anyone knows for sure, I would be interested to find out the specifics.

Maybe Rush didn't mention it because he wants to avoid any discussion of his history as an addict. That would be "off topic."

In fact as a black gay woman there was a lot she could have done that would have been outrageous and funny.

How about this as a opening line.
"I want to greet you with the famous lines that Barack Obama's father first uttered when he came to America..."Where the white woman at?"

Then she could have mocked the sterotype that black dudes want white woman no matter how ugly but as a lesbian that's cool because that left more woman for her. Or jokes about how dudes from Kenya are really fast and always win in the Olympics and that comes in handy for the President because he wants to run away from his mother in law who is living in the White House.

She could have punctured the politically correct balloon in a big way that a white or hispanic comic or male comic could never do and been very funny.

But that's not Wanda Sykes. Very safe stuff. Not funny. No talent. Hack.

So she was perfect for those journalists. Heh.

Palladian said...

"Maybe Rush didn't mention it because he wants to avoid any discussion of his history as an addict."

Just like Obama wants to avoid any discussion of his history as an addict?

Sniffle, sniffle.

palladian, you were too quick in replying! I tried to fix the damn italics thing, then your comment preceded mine.

Now they'll wonder where that comment came from (Ahmadinejad dying of trichinosis is funny!).

1jpb said...

Trooper,

Nixon got there first. And, it was a hit. See my earlier comment.

1jpb said...

Palladian,

The NYT spent a bunch of time looking into BHO's drug use by tracking down all the folks that surrounded BHO during that time of his life. Do you remember what their implied accusation was?

That BHO was exaggerating his drug use to spice up his book.

Rush wishes he had that problem.

Trooper York said...

1jpb you miss the point. Sykes has the chance to mock both sides of the equation much the same way as Chris Rock does in his comedy. Or the way Jackie Mason mocks jews and jewish sterotypes that wouldn't be acceptable coming from a black comedian. But I think you are too thin skinned as a lot of the conservatives here are about comedy.

I mean you can have a white skin or a black skin but if the shit is funny you just can't have a thin skin.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Silly of me to think their tactics would change once in power. .

Well I would call it wishful thinking at best.

We're far too polarized as a nation now and far too many scores have to be settled for us to actually, you know, get on with fixing the country. Well I guess the problem there is the difference of opinion as to what 'fixing' the country means. For Obamabots, it means sinking us all further into debt so everyone can have free health care, free college and a free pony. Bush deficit spending = BAD! Obama deficit spending = GOOD!. Wrong is right and the sun rises in the South if Obama says so. Bankruptcy shamkruptcy, we're going to do it our way and you can talk to Guido at the IRS if you don't fucking like it. We won. Now shut up and go pit my cherries.

It's good to be the king.

1jpb: The NYT spent a bunch of time looking into BHO's...

I'd be careful with the words "a bunch". My research indicates that the NYT didn't do a whole lot of hard-hitting pieces on Obama's drug use. What they did indicated that there were a bunch of people who claimed that Obama partied with them but never partied that hard. With the history of the NYT, I find it hard to believe that they're doing hard-hitting pieces on the drug use of the presumptive Democratic nominee in the 9 months before the 2008 election. Call me jaded but I just don't believe they were willing to interview anyone who might suggest that BHO was more than a casual pot smoker.

1jpb said...

Trooper,

I disagree w/ your point. Speaking for my self, I don't want a 100% race based routine because she's black and he's black.

She did have some funny stuff about him being half black. But, I don't need to be deluged w/ racial jabber, just because some of the folks involved aren't white.

Different strokes for different folks.

AlphaLiberal said...

I didn't think it was funny, but I didn't think it was funny when George Bush made a big joke out missing WMD.

And, in that case, hundreds of thousands of people died for his jokes.

As far as Limbaugh, well, if there is anyone for whom such a joke is appropriate, it's him. He has made thousands of inappropriate jokes over the years.

And many of the people with their panties in a wad over Wanda's joke defended Rush.

Palladian said...

"Different strokes for different folks."

I think Gary Coleman should have been the entertainment.

AlphaLiberal said...

Maybe Rush didn't mention it because he wants to avoid any discussion of his history as an addict. That would be "off topic."Yes, we're not supposed to discuss that the leader of the conservative movement is a drug addict.

But Limbaugh's drug abuse explains his addled thinking rather well.

Someone told me that many elites hooked on the pills get their, in part, by their love for heroin and cocaine. I don't know a lot about that subject, frankly.

1jpb said...

Bob,

The NYT did more hit pieces on BHO than they did on McCain.

I will never forget the issue where they compiled all their previous pieces about these two guys. The BHO stuff was much more critical. And, a lot of that stuff had been meticulously discredited w/ indisputable third party facts on the BHO website.

The only hatchet jobs on McCain where the sort-of accusation of cheating w/ the lobbyist and the poking around w/ Cindy's personal relationships/friendships.

When I first scanned that compilation (by looking at all the headlines) I was shocked that the NYT was trashing BHO, and being relatively favorable to McCain. Then on closer inspection I realized that each blurb under the headlines was a description of a story from earlier in the campaign.

AlphaLiberal said...

Ha-ha. This is funny. When Rush Limbaugh was being investigated for violating drug laws, the ACLU filed an amicus curiae brief supporting Rush Limbaugh.

Drug laws make strange bedfellows!

Follow the Leader! He's got the best drugs in town!

mrs whatsit said...

ijcp, it makes my point that you so thoroughly fail to see my point.

Palladian said...

"Someone told me that many elites hooked on the pills get their, in part, by their love for heroin and cocaine. I don't know a lot about that subject, frankly."

If I am parsing this mangled grammatical wreck correctly, I think you're suggesting (in a completely douchebaggy and revolting manner) that Limbaugh is secretly a cocaine or heroin addict...

Wow.

I think Limbaugh should change his name to Emmanuel Goldstein.

garage mahal said...

Just like Obama wants to avoid any discussion of his history as an addict?.

By devoting pages to it in a book he wrote? I mean, a book written by him and Bill Ayers? And I must have missed the part where Obama got busted for doctor shopping prescriptions.

ijpb: NYT on BHO

Btw, the piece you first referenced is a validation of the critique from the Right that the BHO-loving media only produces fawning pieces on the politicians they love. I mean, come on, they took BHO's own claims about his drug use, interviewed a bunch of his old party friends and wrote, "oh, don't worry, Obama was just trying to be cool, he didn't really do that many drugs!" So, now we're all supposed to feel warm and fuzzy because the President is historically hyperbolic to sell more books.

1jpb said...

Bob,

Shockingly, I didn't keep it. Clearly you've discovered the smoking gun to what you may be implying is my imaginary NYT compilation. So, feel free to believe that it never existed.

Mrs,

Crybaby!

AlphaLiberal said...

I think a more interesting thread would be "why do conservatives make a drug addict their leader?"

And, news on the net says that ol' Lush has probably fallen off the wagon.

Pallidian:

I tend to come right out and make my charges, not beat around the bush.

Look, Althouse and her followers claim to know secret motivations all the time (latest one is a secret plot to keep Gitmo open). It's how things are done here.

Except not to the Great Lush, huh? His motivations must not be questioned.

AJ Lynch said...

Looks like Obama's spending plans will grow the deficit even more.

So Obama may need a full-time comedian on staff to keep morale up. Is Kramer or George Costanza available? It would be a win-win. Obama could claim he created one more job.

AlphaLiberal said...

To clarify, as I understand, Obama admitted to being a former drug (MJ and cocaine) user, not an addict.

Unlike Lush Windbag, he was not busted for Doctor shopping to illegally procure drugs.

Unlike Lush Windbag, he did not do this well into his middle age but stopped by his early 20s.

Unlike Lush Windbag, he did not reach a plea agreement with the AG. Essentially, a conviction.

Unlike Lush Windbag, he did admit it without being busted and dealt with it.

AJ Lynch said...

Alpha:

To be fair you should add "as far as you know" at the end of each sentence in your defense of Obama's drug use.

For instance, as far as you know, Obama claimed (in his book? or in an interview?) he stopped using drugs in his early 20's.

Palladian said...

"Look, Althouse and her followers claim to know secret motivations all the time (latest one is a secret plot to keep Gitmo open). It's how things are done here."

It is? Oh ok. In that case, I heard that you like to fuck euthanized cats out back of the local animal shelter. I don't know a lot about that subject, frankly.

AlphaLiberal said...

AJ wants the federal government to cut back on spending, along with the private sector.

In conservative Bizarro world, this will somehow speed our recovery. If only everyone in the economy cut back, wouldn't life be grand!

ooooo-eeeee-oooooo...

Palladian said...

I heard that Obama once snorted coke out of Angela Davis' afro. I don't know a lot about that subject, frankly.

Bob Sacamano said...

1jpb -- whoops the "compilation" disappeared..

That's so strange. I remember seeing this compilation that Newsweek had put together on Obama. The compilation suggested that Obama was a crypto-Muslim and that he probably had a crack-dealing business from 1982-1985. It also suggested that Obama was probably funneling Illionis state funds to his buddy Ayers so they could bomb the Pentagon again.

I don't remember where I saw it now, but I remember it.

Trooper York said...

Hey just to be clear 1jpb, I think you post some funny stuff and have a good sense of humor in general.

I didn't want Sykes to do only "racial" jokes, she had a lot to work with in a lot of areas in which she is safe to mock because she is a black lesbian that are radioactive for anyone else. But she didn't have the balls so to speak. She is a hack of the first water. Sort of if Bush had used someone like Jeff Foxworthy. Funny is funny and that shit ain't funny.

Is that how you interpret my comment Alpha?

I strongly supported a stimulus but not the scatter-shot fiasco Obama and the Dems drew up.

Let's face it, the first thing that should have been easily stimulated is new car sales. But new car sales still suck because the plan was a lousy one.

Hate to have to tell you this but it is true.

Palladian said...

Wanda Sykes' act is funnier and fresher than Titus'. Get some new material, Sally Bowles..

AlphaLiberal said...

Big difference, Pallidian. I have a basis in fact for floating that question.

See:
OxyContin Users Turning to HeroinHey, I can't believe anyone still uses H after all we've learned. But they do. And oxycontin is a gateway drug. Plus Rush Limbaugh is an Oxy addict.

For people who want to fill our prisons with drug users to march behind a big drug addict is a bit much to expect the rest of us to take!

Especially when they say HE should be allowed to stay out of prison and get treatment. But not all those other millions!

Rush Limbaugh should have done time.

1jpb said...

"why do conservatives make a drug addict their leader?"

At first I wasn't sure if this was W or Rush. I think that W has admitted to an "irresponsible youth" that ended in his forties when he became closer to God. I think he's acknowledged drink too much. I also recall that he's never denied using cocaine.

Why won't he say that he hasn't used cocaine? I think he's used it, just like BHO.

And, one thing seems certain; only one of these guys seems to have had a destructive relationship w/ what could be described as addiction (to alcohol).

AlphaLiberal said...

AJ, glad to hear I misunderstood your position on the stimulus.

However, I do think "reinflating the bubble" schemes are not real feasible (though whether autos were one is debatable). And Infrastructure improvements continue to deliver economic benefits long after the cars drop dead.

But lunch is over now. Thanks for the diversion.

TitusTheCabaret said...

Rush and Bush's previous addictions are not an issue. We all fall from grace.

Obama's drug use is a very serious issue and concern though.

dannyboy said...

I never heard of Wanda Sykes until now. What kind of name is Wanda Sykes for a black woman anyway? That sounds pretty Waspy to me.

MadisonMan said...

ljpb, I think Obama has had, maybe still has, a destructive relationship with that addictive nicotine. You can argue that such a relationship is different than alcoholism, but addiction is addiction.

AJ Lynch said...

Damn Alpha must be in a union. He gets to take time off for lunch.

NKVD said...

Is the headline supposed to be funny? Rush as a jihadi? Sure, I can see Obama in that role, and that of a drug addict, too. He is still addicted to nicotine, and he used to smoke crack, but come on, no audience would laugh at suggesting a muslim was the 20th hijacker or that Obama was an addict. The truth is never funny.

dannyboy said...

Last week a co-worker introduced me to his new girlfriend and I doubled up laughing because I thought he said her name was Boniva and I said ain't that the drug Sally Field is hawking on tv?

MM,

Let's at least agree that not all addictions are equally destructive.

Don't want to be a moral equivalence lib do ya?

Speaking of really mild addictions, I'm about to go to Starbucks for a disgustingly sugary concoction (2nd of the day) that a few years ago I would, rightly, ridiculed and mocked. Now, I can't get enough.

It's sad. I know.

former law student said...

Folks, this is just robust humor, like when El Rushbo cracked about "the Magic Negro" ordering black teenagers be shot to death on the high seas.

Wanda Sykes is an entertainer, a comedian. If you don't appreciate her humor, most likely you haven't listened to her long enough. I recommend a daily, three-hour long, dose.

dannyboy said...

Rushbo cracked about "the Magic Negro" ordering black teenagers be shot to death on the high seas..

Why is it always the high seas? Why not the low seas or the mid-seas?

And why are black teenagers on the seas anyway? Everyone knows they can't swim.
