A Witch Called Wanda

Comedian Wanda Sykes took a sharp swipe at Rush Limbaugh at Saturday’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner:

“You’ve had your fair share of critics. … Rush Limbaugh said this administration fails. … He just wants the country to fail. To me that’s treason. He’s not saying anything different than what Osama Bin Laden is saying. You might want to look into this, sir, because I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker but he was just so strung out on Oxycontin he missed his flight. … Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails, I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs a good waterboarding, that’s what he needs.”

Poor taste. Out of bounds. Unfair to Rush by comparing him to a 9-11 hijacker. I enjoy a good Rush Limbaugh joke as much as the next one, but this swipe is mean and ugly and unfair — and told in front of the President of the United States.

And we wonder why people are so cynical and caustic these days.

It’s time for the WHCD to re-evaluate their annual program. This clearly crossed the line.
