Rush Limbaugh:The 20th Hijacker – Just One More Reason to Love Wanda Sykes

“Maybe Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker but he was so strung out on Oxycontin he missed his flight.” – Wanda Sykes

Yup, that’s what comedian Wanda Sykes called old fat boy Rush Limbaugh last Saturday night at the White House Press Correspondent Dinner. I’m not gonna lie, that was one of the funniest lines I’ve heard in a long time. I did a blog a while back on the 2oth hijacker, and that’s also why I had to laugh at that line.


Sadly, it would appear that there is a segment of the population who thinks her routine was over the top. I suspect that they are all Republicans. I mean, had she not said anything about Rush Limbaugh the leader of the party, Dick Cheney, Sean Hannity or allude to failures of the previous administration, would they be upset?

Probably not, but hey, I understand why those people are a little bit shitty. Yeah, I get a little upset when someone talks shit about my favorite NBA team which happens to be the New York Knicks. But like me, they should be able to take what they dish out. After all, I can’t stand the Dallas Cowboys and I spare no moment to give their fans hell when I encounter them. That said, and me being a fan of comedy, I enjoyed Wanda Sykes’ entire routine. Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, or an Independent, you couldn’t have helped to laugh. Lets be real, it’s not like we were watching a re-screening of Pootie Tang….

Funny is funny for crying out loud, and its exactly the reason every time the 20th hijacker speaks I laugh. Of course I’m not laughing at what he says as being funny, but instead laughing at the fact that he’s been able to hide his mental retardation from radio executives. An astonishing act which has led to him being on the air.
Ok yeah, so maybe I was out of line to say that. Yes, maybe what I said was insulting to the mentally challenged among us. For that I apologize. Yes I do, because putting them in the same class as Limbaugh is very disrespectful to the many mentally challenged who live among us. At the end of the day, why even get mad at Wanda Sykes?
I mean after all, isn’t she an entertainer just like Limbaugh?

QUESTION:Do you think she was over the top and or inappropriate?
