Wanda Sykesí Gutless Performance
Big Hollywood ^ | May 11th 2009 at 4:41 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 05/11/2009 4:19:52 PM PDT by lewisglad

Wanda Sykes is the most gutless and feckless performer ever to grace the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Sykes, for those who haven’t seen her stellar work in gems like Over the Hedge, is a militant lesbian with a grating voice and an obnoxious strut.

Well, apparently she’s not so proud to be gay. Because when given the opportunity to make jokes about the nation’s leading proponent of opposite-sex marriage, President Barack Obama, she said precisely nothing.

Meanwhile, she saved her real ire for non-governmental figures like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. To Obama’s hysterical laughter, she said that she hoped Limbaugh would suffer kidney failure and accused him of being the 20th hijacker. She said she wanted Sean Hannity waterboarded by Keith Olbermann. She attacked Dick Cheney, stating that if her child had a choice between getting in a car with Dick Cheney and a car with a stranger, she would tell her child to choose the stranger.

The bottom line: both feminism and homosexuality matter less to Sykes than kissing Barack Obama’s butt. She didn’t utter a single joke about Obama’s out of control spending. Not one joke about his teleprompter. Not one joke about his visit with Chavez, his messages to Iran, his Cinco De Mayo screwup, his mastery of the Austrian language, his “world without nuclear weapons,” his spreading the wealth around, his ownership of the car companies, his tax-cheat employees.

And most of all, not a single joke about Dan Choi, the first gay Arabic linguist fired by Barack Obama under the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Not a single joke about Obama’s refusal to stump for homosexual marriage. Sykes pledged to “get in their face” about gay marriage, but refused to get in the face of the most powerful man on earth about

She did say Obama might be seen mowing the White House lawn. Biting humor!

Our gutless, classless president showed his character by what he found amusing. What a foul man BO is!

One can’t expect civility from the likes of Sykes. Like her hero, she gets an Affirmative Action pass. Our culture just doesn’t expect that much of certain kinds of people.

BS.

She called out the bailout when saying she wasn't nervous about her performance.

She called out media bias when saying that they never catch him smoking but always seemed to catch him with his shirt off.

And I have heard her routine long ago, she talks about relationships with men in her act so I am unsure about the militant lesbian characterization.

She even said Obama didn't have any game.

I haven't seen the Rush bit yet, and it is total B.S. of her to conflate wanting Obama’s policy initiatives to fail with wanting the nation to fail. The Democrats openly lobbied for Bush to fail less than a year ago.

They're right about the grating voice! I first heard the clip on Bill Cunningham's show and I thought he was doing a tribute to the Munchkin who had recently died. I couldn't understand what the person was saying, I just assumed it was some old recording of the actor who played the Munchkin, until I thought I heard "Rush Limbaugh".

...feminism and homosexuality matter less to Sykes than kissing Barack Obama’s butt.

Nothing matters more than kissing Barack Obama's butt; it is the greatest growth industry of the last ten years. If the statists really wanted to bring in some coin, they could strap a surveillance camera to his sphincter and then dun every sycophant who has osculated the Kenyan fundament. Sort of like a traffic camera... the system records who's rolling through the old brown light, and the believers get a bill in the mail. Wanda Sykes would be a little short at the end of this week, Chris Matthews would be destitute, and the DNC would have enough to buy back all of Soros' shares of Virtucon (and still have change to buy Rahm Emanuel a low-mileage soul).

Is she related to Lawanda Page, the woman who played Aunt Esther? She sounds a lot like her and she is definitely stealing her act. Although Lawanda delivered it better and had better material.

Brian Williams declared feelings were hurt, umbrage was taken, excuses were issued, so it must have been a successful event.

I’m sitting here trying to imagine what Brian would have said had someone made a stinging remark about Zero.

The best Correspondents Dinner entertainment had to be Don Imus during the Clinton years. It took stones to say some of the things he did about the Grifters.

One commentator said that they only thing left to do after Imus' presentation was to go around and shoot the wounded. It was great!!!

Sykes didn’t speak truth to power.

It doesn’t take guts to rant at your out-of-power “enemies” while you are surrounded by your currently-in-power friends.

Don't waste your time, the show will bomb on its own and it won't be due to pressure on the sponsors........

WANDA RETURNS TO FOX! 4-1-2009

Family Guy - same story. Time to pull the TV plug out of the wall and do something (anything) else.

News Corp will charge for newspaper websites, says Rupert Murdoch

Snippets: Television profits also shrank dramatically, falling from $419m to $4m due to a loss of Superbowl revenue and weaker advertising at the group's Fox channels in the US and its Star network in Asia.

"she talks about relationships with men in her act so I am unsure about the militant lesbian characterization."

She has been a vocal opposer of Proposition 8 in California. Her oppositon may be characterized as "militant."

From a New York Times November 15, 2008 article:

In Las Vegas, the comedian Wanda Sykes surprised a crowd of more than 1,000 rallying outside a gay community center by announcing that she is gay and had wed her wife in California on Oct. 25. Ms. Sykes, who divorced her husband of seven years in 1998, had never publicly discussed her sexual orientation but said the passage of Proposition 8 had propelled her to be open about it.

"I felt like I was being attacked, personally attacked — our community was attacked," she told the crowd.

“I haven’t seen the Rush bit yet,”

When the media talks about this, they always leave out that Sykes wished failed kidneys on Rush. In other words, she wants Rush dead. That’s the outrage. AND Obama laughed.

Yet another problem with the hysterical tone of the writer.

Obama is always given a pass for having the exact same position as the Republicans. In fact Palin had to correct Biden when he tried to say different, and when challenged Biden capitulated half heatedly that marriage was between one man and one woman.

Yes, and does this militant lesbian know a) the treatment of homosexuals under sharia, and b) the shaft Hussein gave her and her ilk when he kissed the Saudi king's ring?

The Homo group are just a means to the end for the Marxists. I will always call them useful stooges. Life produced by a man and a woman for the Marxists no longer has that level of significance that our culture has given it through the ages. This is a part of the Marxist strategy. Human life must no longer have that transcendent importance that sets it above the state. Human life is now the property of the state to define as it wants and to use as it sees fit.
