http://www.alainsnewsletter.com/read/211/media-liberal-bias/not-funny-barack-obama-laughs-at-wanda-sykes-joke-about-wanting-rush-limbaugh-dead/ This is what she said: "Rush Limbaugh said he hopes this administration fails, so you're saying, 'I hope America fails', you're, like, 'I dont 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 differently than what Osama bin Laden is saying. You know, 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." She then concluded: "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." Obama seemed to think this bit was pretty hilarious, grinning and chuckling and turning to share the "joke" with the person sitting on his right. There's not much room for differing interpretations of what Sykes said. She called Limbaugh a terrorist and a traitor, suggested that he be tortured and wished him dead. What was his crime? Hoping that Obama's policies - which he views as socialist - will fail. That's way, way beyond reasoned debate or comedy and Obama's reaction to it was astonishing. Imagine if a comedian "joked" that Obama was a terrorist who was guilty of treason and should be tortured and allowed to die. There would justifiably be an outcry. But when the "joke" comes from a liberal, Obama-supporting comedienne and the target is a right-winger then the likes of Hilary Rosen and Donna Brazile are on CNN saying it's just comedy and Limbaugh is "fair game". LIBERALS DON'T DO THIS SORT OF THING, THEY'RE VERY TOLERANT PEOPLE, RIGHT? THIS IS ONLY THE SORT OF THING YOU'D HEAR FROM CONSERVATIVE NUT CASES, THEY SAY.

I am offended when people bash Rush. I agree with Rush on almost everything. When they talk about him like that I find it very hurtful personally. When Pelosi calls us Nazi's I guess that's not HATE. I can't even use the word HATE without getting ripped to pieces.
