Wanda Sykes comments about Limbaugh

Much is being made, in certain circles, about Wanda Sykes jokes about Rush Limbaugh at the Press Corps dinner last night...or the night before..whenever it was.

Supposedly she made some jokes about Obama as well, I dn't see them on YouTube. Of course, it's okay for blacks to make jokes about Obama. Catch a white perosn doing it - even the same joke - and of course they'll be branded a racist and probably lose their job. (And I'm not blaming the oversensitive idiots who scream racism, but the companies, etc. who cave to their threats.)

Obama's comments:

I have to admit that this is the kind of humor that is all the rage these days. Way back in the 1970s the "Dean Martin Roasts" were all the rage, with a variety of comedians putting down the guest of honor. And of course Don Rickles, the king of insult. I've never understood or cared for that kind of humor.
