Why exactly is the White House distancing itself from Wanda Sykes? Had they not heard her stand-up before? She dissed Rush Limbaugh, who continually disses and mocks President Obama, and she's wrong? Okay. I'm going to need the Obama White House to man-up and to stop getting punked by Republicans, especially at White House events. She is funny, gay, liberal and always takes on the Republicans in her stand-up. Did they really think she was going to curb her enthusiasm for taking on Limbaugh and Cheney? The White House needs to get a sense of humor.
