We’ll see if the new administration has a sense of humor when that Queen Of Mean (and that’s a compliment), Wanda Sykes, is going to be mocking Barack Obama. That’s the tradition at the White House Correspondents Association annual media-politics-showbiz schmoozefest in Washington DC where Sykes will be performing May 9th. “The first thing I did when they asked me to do this gig — I made sure my taxes were paid,” quipped Sykes (unlike a lot of Democrats). The openly gay co-star of CBS’ The New Adventures of Old Christine who’s also an outspoken Democrat and Obama supporter (and BFF of Jane Fonda) was chosen by the Association “because of her fresh style and engaging stage presence”. I just hope C-SPAN has a 7-second delay button.
