The excitement brought to American politics by President Barack Obama continued at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night. There may have been more celebrities in attendance than there were journalists and politicos but President Obama has attained super rock star status. It is what it is.
Much discussion of the evening will probably address the president's comedic style. President Obama's jokes were very good. He's very much reminiscent of late night talk show legend Johnny Carson in his delivery.
On the other hand comedian Wanda Sykes was brutal and, in some cases, brutally honest. Too much so for some people. She ragged on just about everyone in a powerful American political position. Her kidney failure comment about Rush Limbaugh and abstinence comment about Sarah Palin may have crossed the line. What do you think?
