Toby Harnden of the U.K. Telegraph was at the Washington correspondents dinner. Mr. Harnden commented on comedienne Wanda Sikes' "comedy routine,
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.
President Obama apparently thought a joke about the torture and death of a political opponent was funny.

Can you imagine if President Bush had laughed about the torture and death of some left wing talk show host? It would have been the lead story on every news outlet in the country--probably for weeks!

Yes this certainly was unfortunate. Especially when you couple it with Obama's sending the photo-op plane over Manhattan, and couple that with his giving a deferential bow to the Saudi King. Frankly I sometime get tired of our "teleprompter president" continuing to learn on the job one gaff at a time. And then there is his Vice-president. But will save that for another time.
