Okay, the Wanda Sykes thing

Holy shit.

As you've probably heard by now:

While entertaining before a group including President Obama at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, comedienne Sykes took a couple of shots at Rush Limbaugh that were, pretty objectively, low blows.

Even Jon Stewart and Keith Olbermann--no amateurs at taking shots at Limbaugh themselves--have raised objections on their respective television shows.

Stewart also pointed out that the same people who have their panties in a bunch because of something Sykes said, are perfectly all right with everything Bush & Cheney did. Quite right.

But that's not the Holy shit part.

As someone on the Aaron Sorkin mailing list just reminded me, in a second season episode of West Wing, "The Drop-In," the c-story was:

A comedian who kills in front of an audience including the President, but there was a joke the White House isn't happy with.

But that's not the Holy shit part either.

The Holy shit part is...the comedian's name on the show?


Aaron Sorkin is Jesus.

K...GOOSEBUMPS and that cold shiver down my spine. Sorkin is not Jesus...he is the devil.
