Maybe she's funny, but not from what you see in the short clips shown all over the MSM. Sykes' remarks were positively hateful, showcasing all that is ugly, petty, and mean about Democrat left-wing. It's the kind of stuff you can hear daily on Sirius Left on such shows as the Alan Bennet show. It involves a lot of "organic" material such as talking about someone's kidneys or body noises, kind of an eighth grade humor but without the humor.
The White House provided some guidelines to Sykes' before her "peformance" but forgot to mention not to mention Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh has projected a far greater figure in the administration than lesser known lights--say, the Vice-President?
Well, Sykes' did manage to obey one White House dictum. Her dialogue was not to use the "N" word, sometimes used in her outside appearances. The result was boring, on the level of a dead cat bounce. Which goes to show how untalented some comedians are when deprived of material not playing upon racial sterotypes.
