It’s a fact of life that sometimes, events unfold in such a way that you can smell a White House Press Corps obsession coming from a mile away. And while this Sunday’s morning chat made me feel like a whole lot of new attention should be given to our regional partners in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region, I can tell you for certain that today’s press cycle shall be given over to the subject of laughter.
Specifically, the topic of Wanda Sykes, and the laughter of President Barack Obama at this weekend’s White House Press Correspondents’ Dinner, and specifically a joke, made at Rush “I Hope He Fails” Limbaugh’s expense. “I hope his kidneys fail.”
