    Wanda Sykes nailed it. That was funny.

    My favorite jokes were the ones about 'what's wrong with the half-white guy?', Nancy Pelosi and Rush Limbaugh.

    Too bad Palin couldnt have been there to hear the abstinence joke. But the First Dude was there, for whatever reason, so he can tell her.

    Both Wanda and Obama rocked! I loved her part about his nipples and Lincoln's nippels.

    I find her delivery painfully laborious, I hope she's not a professional stand-up comedian. And wtf are those actors/singers doing there? Can't there be one event reserved to the people who use their brains to make a living?

    Obama was funnier than I thought he would be.

    The joke about John Boner was classic.

    You're right, the President has a much better writer, but Wanda Sykes was able to go after the republican's jugular. She received gasps when referring to Rush as a terrorist & mentioning his oxycontin addiction. She even went after Michelle for 'inappropriately' touching the Queen (i didn't see that video), and the media for snapping too many photos of the President shirtless, unable to catch him smoking.
    Obama definitely crushed his dinner speech......that's why I feel sorry for Wanda because she had to follow him
