Q: Which Wanda Sykes Statement Is the Most Outrageous?
Wanda Sykes, unfunny comedienne and B-grade actress, spoke at the White House correspondents' dinner yesterday -- the premier social event of the D.C. calendar. The eyes of the elite-media world were upon her; here is a clip from the joint:
She made three intriguing statements; in reverse order, they were:
- "Rush Limbaugh.... I hope his kidneys fail -- how 'bout that?"
- "I think maybe Rush Limbaugh was the twentieth hijacker; he was just so strung out on Oxycontin, he missed his flight."
- "Rush Limbaugh said he hopes this administration fails. So you're sayin', I hope America fails! I don't care about people losing their homes, their jobs, our soldiers in Iraq... He just wants the country to fail. To me, that's treason: He's not saying anything different than what Osama bin Laden is sayin'."
In the third statement above, Sykes casually equates Barack H. "Lucky Lefty" Obama with the United States of America; thus if Limbaugh hopes for the failure of Obama's massive expansion of the federal government to control every aspect of our lives, then that means Limbaugh wants America itself to fail. Hey, Obama -- America -- same thing: The One We Have Been Waiting For begins Le Grand Siècle Nouveau des États-Unis.
"L'État c'est moi!"
I can't answer the question in the title of this post, which of the three statements is most outrageous; but I certainly maintain that the final statement above is the most unAmerican. Alas, it is also the least controversial -- among America's media elites.

I won't click and listen. B,C and worse wanna be funny acts...nothing but tripe. I just read a comment somewhere smugly mocking the mere 20% of Americans who are conservatives. Well I say there are more of us than obnoxious things like her. It's just that they yell so loudly no one sensible can be heard.

The Liberal world: often spoken principles of so-called compassion and high mindedness but, when push comes to shove, the real face of liberalism is shown: vain, vindictive, thin-skinned, cruel, arrogant, and emotionally immature. And these are qualities they are proud of?

I wonder how the peace loving Obama supporters will take this ...
US officials responded with massive diplomatic pressure, publicly accusing Pakistan of “abdicating” to the Taleban. Behind the scenes, they also threatened to launch missile attacks on Swat and to withhold — or at least attach strict conditions to — billions of dollars in military and civilian aid. Yesterday the House Appropriations Committee approved an initial package of $1 billion (£665 million), including $400 million for improving Pakistani forces’ counter-insurgency abilities and $600 million for education and democratic reforms.
It's dated yesterday, so it must be Obama pressuring a poor 3rd world country by threatening military intervention.
Can you say ... 'cowboy' diplomacy ?

The White House correspondents' dinner was another scheduled meeting of the Church of the One. Sykes was booked to speak when Jeremiah Wright was unavailable.
