I like Wanda Sykes. She's very funny. She's particularly funny often acting as the indignant black woman on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and it's a great schtick. Yes, it's the first joke about 9/11 that I've heard if you want to talk about the Rush Limbaugh, Oxycontin, 20th terrorist thing. And how could Obama not smile - it was funny. Rush Limbaugh dishes out an awful lot, I'm sure he can take this. He probably laughed himself.
Maybe the jokes appeared a little too true. "You all voted for me" Obama said to the press corps. They laughed and I hope felt a little embarassed by it. Yup the flyover joke might have been a little too close to home as plenty of people including me are still angered by it. But hey, Jon Favreau is edgy, he grabbed a cardboard cut out of Hilary Clinton and squeezed her corrugated boobs for the internet. The man's edgy. Obama trusts this 27 year-old frat boy to be his wit mentor the way we trust our barber to get the area around our ears just right.
Sure, we all think we learned something about Obama Saturday night and we did. Being indignant about it is pointless.
Move on, nothing to see here.
