Wanda Sykes and President Obama entertain the MSM and Washington elite by getting laughs at the expense of the GOP.
What a sexy blog, love the theme, what are you using?
Wow! Apparently a girl can't go to work and ignore this place for a few hours without being lambasted.
I speak only for myself, but for the most part I find the women on here to be reasonable, thoughtful and intelligent. I think I'd like to meet most of them. What I don't like is folks who come on here, lumping us all into one group, assuming we all agree on everything and SHOUTING at us all.
I think at some point many of us have had some heated exchanges but when the dust settles, cooler heads prevail and peace is once more restored in the VP kingdom.
I'm tired of responding to people who won't listen. I will no longer engage in this juvenile debate.
Dear Ann (Annie?), about that "lesbo posse" o'mine:
1. I would never lead a posse that would have me for a member.
2. I was parodying Sarah Pain's Katie Couric interview. You remember that one, right? The one where she couldn't name a single periodical that she reads or any Supreme Court case she disagrees with other than Roe v. Wade.
3. Calling BS when someone posts an unsourced, silly, or unreasonable argument is not "beating up on them." If you're Annie Oakley then put on your big girl panties and quit whining every time someone stands up to your BS.

I don't know if anyone is returning to this thread, but maybe VP will use this as a subject to create a new one.
Chalk it up to another Obama-anti-gay, throwin-someone-under-the-bus routine:
Wanda Sykes is taking the fall for another Obama/Axelrodrod mistake. Those who were informed about the DNC convention knows that Axelrod leaves nothing to chance: Wanda's routine before she went performed it.
At the democratic convention the DNC (Axelrod) insisted upon seeing every single speech before anyone got up on stage. They complained because Hillary was not ready with her speech "until the last minute". They control the message always, and now that there's some negative fall-out re Syke's routine the Obama admin is letting her get torn apart by the media. I wish there was a way to confirm that her routine was ok'd by someone in the admin.
A black gay woman being used as a scapegoat...just like the guy who took the fall for the flight over NYC...
Thank you, Obama.
dang! should read:
Wanda’s routine had to have been approved by the White House admin before she went performed it.
I finally got to watch this, but I just want to say how PROUD I am that an out lesbian was a headlining speaker! Just a few years ago this would never have happened. Change is small but it happens.
Celebrate the baby steps and look forward the leaps.
P.S. The folks on The View today had a "heated discussion" about the Rush Limbaugh jokes. Seems one of them wasn't laughing.
Clearly, Wanda was referencing Lush Rumball saying he "hopes Obama fails." Her joke was kind of lame in a playgroundy way. "Oh, yeah well I hope your kidney fails." One of the side effects of addiction to hillbilly heroin (Rumball's drug of choice) is kidney failure.
As usual, the wingnuts have gone overboard in attacking her and making Rumball the victim. Yep; this is the same guy who said:
"She sounds like a screeching ex-wife." --on Sen. Hillary Clinton
"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society."
"He is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act. ... This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting."
“The most beautiful thing about a tree is what you do with it after you cut it down”
I really hope she doesn't apologize.
Hillbilly Heroin - moonshine?
Ha, good guess, but Oxycontin is known as "Hillbilly Heroin."
Your comment reminded me of the song "White Lightnin":
Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him,
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'
Hmm... I wonder who that could be?
Hey, I like Elisabeth.... I'd do her. I mean, I'd have her over for an evening of intellectual 'stimulation'.
intellectual stimulation Good luck locating the intellect. Do they make a device for that? Kind of like an electronic stud finder? Because I'm thinking it is just about as well hidden. :?
The intellectual part is optional.
Actually, she doesn't need to talk at all........
*damn, I'm a piggy*
A quality I find rather refreshing.
A quote, which explains why the "joke" about Rush was pretty horrible and not doing Wanda's karma a whole lotta good:
"For those who understand kidney failure, what Ms. Sykes was saying was she wanted Rush Limbaugh in lingering excruciating pain, unable to process body fluids, fevered and finally lapsing into a coma."
I scanned the crowd for Rachel Maddow. Was she there?
Rachel should have been front row centre!! :grin:
Great libidos minds lust think alike.
OK, the strike through shows while it is processing, and then disappears when it settles down on the page.
P.S ... with a crown and a sash.
My god, those were the biggest earrings I have ever seen!
Second observation ... How good did Demi and Ashton look?
When Demi Moore was on General Hospital, her nick name was :
Do - me - more.
I'm just sayin'......
Oh LongBeach ... the tales you could tell, I'm sure!
You insider, you!
P.S. she has one great surgeon ... or perhaps a team of surgeons ...
"give her Texas!" Okay, whattaya say, Steph? Think the Queen would want Texas?
Twitter Time @kdhales
Yeah baby!! "The United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Texas." That has a good ring to it I feel!!
Beware Steph !
:fish and chips emoticone:
Thanks for the heads up!!
:fast food nation emoticon:
something tells me texas would want to go first
You know me well, or were you referring to the state?
The United Kingdom of Texas, Great Britain & Northern Ireland... don'tcha think?
Now that might be an issue......
A serious issue - we Texans don't require first kudos - at the end will do nicely! We generally keep it quiet - keep our bidding under wraps! Exceptions to that rule are our Governor and Walker, Texas Ranger!
Would Texas be a kingdom or a dominion of the Commonwealth? I vote Tex for Governor General.
Oh, I think it could be a kingdom (or even a queendom perhaps...)
So we have to find some nice drag king and queen to set in charge? Does Texas have enough money to pay for a set of crown jewels? The possibilities are really delightful!
Thank you for your support!
Will you be sending texts as part of your campaign?
Why sure - the campaign ways of the 2000s....
The personal touch,
Tex - ts!!
A definite good ring!
If Palin were the Queen of Texas, I think everyone in the country would be behind secession.
Isn’t it funny how women rip into Palin, who is personally pro-life, while MEN dominate the so-called “right-to-life” movement?
Palin hasn't done a thing to take away women's right to choose, but our very own POTUS now says the Freedom of Choice Act is not "a legislative priority" (after having LIED to an audience of women at Planned Parenthood before the election, saying FOCA would be the VERY FIRST BILL HE'D SIGN AS PRESIDENT!)
Hail Rick Warren! Hail Obama!
Palin "hasn’t done a thing to take away women’s right to choose" unless you call backing an Alaska bill that would require parental consent before girls under age 17 could get an abortion "a thing".
Then there's the whole 'charging rape victims for the hospital rape kit' thing. Yeah, she's pro-woman.
Don't really know what her stance on abortion has to do with whether we think she's nothing more than a pawn for the Republican party chosen as McCain's running mate simply because she's female.
sort of like Obama-the-Liar being a pawn for the corporations and chicago bible-thumpers who own him?
Robin, the rape kit thing was disproved ages ago. Really!
see, cuz choice is something for ALL THE HUMANS!
I still want to know who the sadist torturing Theon in the dungeon...
