At Saturday night’s White House Correspondents Dinner, comedian Wanda Sykes’s took some shots at Rush Limbaugh. In one joke she said, “I hope his kidney’s fail.”
http://www.breitbart.tv/html/336173.html reminded us of Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) saying of AIG executives, “The first thing that would make me feel a little bit better towards them if they’d follow the Japanese model and come before the American people and take that deep bow and say I’m sorry, and then either do one of two things — resign, or go commit suicide.”
A Fannie May executive did commit suicide which serves as a reminder that people are getting hurt during these stressful times….
During Monday’s press brief, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said, “I think there are a lot of topics that are better left for serious reflection rather than comedy. I think there’s no doubt 9/11 is part of that.”
Even a sports reporter got into hot water recently for joking about the hate some feel toward Nancy Pelosi…..
Reporter Appologizes To Nancy Pelosi
From the Associated Press:
CBS Sports golf analyst David Feherty apologized Sunday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for a morbid joke that went bad in a Dallas magazine.
Feherty, one of the most popular golf analysts for his sharp wit and self-deprecating humor, was among five Dallas residents who wrote for “D Magazine” on former President George W. Bush moving to Dallas.
“From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this though,” Feherty wrote toward the end of his column.
“Despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Osama bin Laden, there’s a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death.”
