At the Press gathering
Got this from POLITICO
Obama laughs at Rush "Oxycontin" jab
Wanda Sykes isn't killing but she's getting some laughs -- and Obama was yukking it up until Sykes muttered the word "abstinence" and "Palin" in the same joke.
He was back laughing when Sykes slammed Rush -- and hard -- for the hoping-Obama-will fail stuff
CSPAN was trained on the president when Sykes joked that Limbaugh was the "I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th [Sept. 11th] hijacker, but he was so strung out on Oxycontin he missed his flight."
Obama was chuckling -- while saying something to his dais mates -- and couldn't quite stop smiling even as he sipped some water.
She finished her Rush bit with: "l hope this country fails?" I hope his kidney fails!"
He chuckled at that one too.
And I hope she.........Nah, can't go there, not even in impolite society.

Wanda Sykes slaps around the critics of the President at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. She takes on Sen. McCain, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Dick Cheney and critics of the President's choice of dog. I love the look on wingnut Glenn Beck's face at about the 2:40 mark. He's obviously not amused.
Sykes: But Mr. President you've had your fair share of critics. You know, even Sen. McCain. Sen. McCain gave you grief about the new helicopter that you didn't order. You know I think Mr. McCain is just a little bitter because he wanted to be in the new helicopter. Just tell Mr. McCain I'm sure if you asked nicely your wife will buy you a helicopter.
Rush Limbaugh, one of your big critics. Boy, Rush Limbaugh said he hopes this administration fails. Yeah. So you're saying I hope America fails. It's like I don't care about people losing their homes, losing their jobs, our soldiers in Iraq. He just wants the country to fail. To me that's treason. He's not saying anything differently than what Osama bin Laden is saying. You know, you might want to look into this sir but I think maybe Rush Limbaugh was the 20th highjacker but he was just so strung out on Oxycontin he missed his flight.
Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails. I hope his kidneys fail. How 'bout that? He needs a good waterboarding. That's what he needs.
Sean Hannity....Sean Hannity said he was going to get waterboarded for charity for our armed forces. He hasn't done it yet I see. You know talking about he can take a waterboarding. Please. Hey okay you might want to get waterboarded by someone you know or trust but let somebody from Pakistan waterboard him, or Keith Olbermann. Let Keith Olbermann waterboard him. He can't take a waterboarding.
I could break Sean Hannity just by giving him a middle seat in coach. Oh I need leg room!!
Dick Cheney...he's a scary man..scares me to death. I tell my kids, I say look if two cars pull up and one has a stranger and the other car has Dick Cheney...you get in the car with the stranger.
