Welcome to the American Capitol.I'm sure you've already heard about Wanda Sykes calling Rush Limbaugh a terrorist, and hoping his "kidneys fail".And that from his reaction, Zerø the TIC* thought it was quite the knee-slapper.Read the story on Fox.com.
An editor with Britain's Daily Telegraph who was at the dinner wrote that liberals will give Sykes a pass, since her target was a right-wing talk show host. And he marveled at Obama's response.
"That's way, way beyond reasoned debate or comedy and Obama's reaction to it was astonishing," wrote Toby Harnden. "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."
[See title] Sykes is the former, Zerø, the latter.I guess this is what he meant when he said he was going to raise the level of discourse in Washington....and stop all that partisan sniping.Rush's reaction: Silence.Zerø shames himself and the office. Sykes proves she's a classless loud-mouth. Rush wins.There is something discordant about Zerø's behavior. He either does not know how to behave properly, or is dismissive of the need to.Whether it's his absurd apologies for America to foreign and enemy states, his cavalier treatment of Gordon Brown, his execrable taste in gifts for heads of state, his bowing to the Saudi king, his wife's grabbing of the Queen of England, his refusal to visit the graves of WWII American dead in France, his refusal to attend the recent Prayer Service, his own personal attack on Rush Limbaugh, his absurd dependence on Teleprompters for the briefest of statements, his having a Pizza Chef flown to the White House, his "party" nights, his Air Force One panic flight over NYC, his $100 a lb steaks, his wife's $500 sneakers......his thug tactics toward GM, Chrysler bond-holders and the banks, his obvious targeting of businesses and political enemies, his willingness to prosecute/ruin political opponents, his campaign's derangement over and persistent persecution of Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber...This guy is a classless boor, parading as a head of state without decorum; an oaf with a limosine.He's an embarassment to us all.
