In the Words of Wanda Sykes: Rush Limbaugh? “Terrorist”

Wanda Sykes will emcee the White House Correspondents Assn. Dinner in May, offering her one of the highest profile tasks of her career.

What she delivered at the emcee of the Human Rights Campaign dinner on Saturday was a dose of material that probably wouldn’t sit well with more bipartisan D.C. crowds.

Of Republicans, she told the crowd, “Talk about evil people, they’re just nasty!” Then she quoted Rush Limbaugh: “‘I want the president to fail!’ What the hell? What kind of bullshit is that? So he says screw everybody else. Screw everybody, I just want to win!’
That’s treason, right? I’m like, ‘Let’s not close Guantanamo,
send Rush Limbaugh’s big ass over there! He’s a terrorist!’”

It was stand up, but will he get the joke?

More of her routine here.
