CNN: Sykes' Joke about Limbaugh (who trashes the U.S. President everyday) was over the Line!

John King was just on CNN, and was at the "Affair" last night. He said he doesn't normally give his personal opinion (sure!), but said that many people cringed last night at the Rush Limbaugh joke, and so did he. He said that this joke was over the line.

I'm just trying to figure out why a joke told by a "comedian" about an "entertainer" who trash talks the President every damn day to millions of listeners over the radio goes over the line.

In otherwords, why can Rush Limbaugh call the President a terrorist and a Socialist, but can't be called a terrorist who was addicted to Oxicotin (especially since it is true).

Didn't John King hear anything that President Obama said in the part of his speech about journalists; that they are at their best when they tell the truth, or an approximation thereof?

I say, :wtf:

FUCK YOU John King! That's what I say.

Let's make sure that the Video of Brenda Sykes telling the Rush Joke goes viral!
