Wanda Sykes delivers the zingers

The mistress of ceremonies at last night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner was actress/comedian Wanda Sykes.

TV FOX Wanda Sykes

I checked out her video performance as well and she poked fun at everyone from President Obama to the Republicans.

The mistress of ceremonies for the evening was Wanda Sykes, an actress and comedian who grew up locally and got her start doing stand-up while moonlighting from her day job as a procurement officer at the National Security Agency.

“It’s funny to me that [photographers] have never caught you smoking,” Sykes told the president, “but they always catch you with your shirt off. I know you’re into this transparency thing, but I don’t need to see your nipples.”

Tart-tongued comic Wanda Sykes, the dinner’s entertainer, poked fun at Obama giving the Queen of England an iPhone during a recent visit. “What are you going to give the Pope, a Bluetooth,” asked Sykes. And she questioned first lady Michelle Obama having patted the queen on the back “like she just slid into home plate — way to go, queen!”

Here’s Wanda’s performance at the dinner.

Can you believe folks are already debating Wanda’s routine from last night?  Apparently some folks weren’t too happy about her rant on Rush Limbaugh, Grand Poobah of the Republican Party (sorry about that Michael Steele).

There’s some chatter in the blogosphere and on cable TV about comedian Wanda Sykes’ routine at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last night, particularly her jokes about conservative talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh.

Since when are comedians or anybody else suppose to tiptoe around Limbaugh?  Especially after all the hate he spews towards others?  Do they bitch and moan about his everyday routine on the radio including his mocking of Michael J. Fox? As Senator R. Clayton “Clay” Davis from The Wire statessheeeeeit!!!!!”
