    Hello From Bangkok. Miss California believes in the existence of Satan, so does the majority of the rest of the world. Don't look so surprised.

    Another terrific show! Thank you Anderson & all of 360! Good night too.

    Good night fellow bloggers! Great remarks (especially on Cheney).I thought the Pres. & Ms.Sykes were hysterically funny at the dinner!

    God bless & prayers for the soldiers that died and for the soldier that shot them.

    Great "shot" & thanks for the info...did not know such a breed existed!

    President Obama was great! Loved his jokes. Maybe those Republicans can chill and have a good laugh. They sure need it! I hope they turn off so many young people that the next election will bring an even larger majority to the Party of Reasonable People. Good Night AC et al.

    Sometimes people need to talk about their problems as it helps them to put everything into perspective. Elizabeth Edwards has the right to do whatever she feels is best for her to do.

    It is sad about the soldiers in Iraq today and I send prayers to all of their families including the one who committed the killings.

    Dick Cheney needs to go away and quit talking. It would help if the media would just quit covering him–he is disgusting and so is the press for covering what he says. He is probably helping the Obama administration by talking so much as so many around the world disliked Cheney so much they will avoid attacking our country just to prove him wrong once again!

    Miss California needs to have her title revoked.

    Obama was great at the press dinner Sat. night!

    I have never know there is an animal called wallaloo. (I do not even know if I spell it right.) It is cute, though. Looks just like kangaroo.

    Good night everyone.
    Have a great Tuesday tomorrow.
    Sweet dreams all!!

    A power tool caused that fire, did the people using the power tools have any firefighting equip?

    some medical detective work needed to figure out what happened at the vacation spot in Thailand

    Pres's joke about Rush being a troubled asset is funnier than I thought. I'm guessing politicians and reporters enjoy irreverent comedians as much as everyone else. I didn't hear some of these pieces of Wanda Sykes routine.

    Father Alberto needs to hurry and marry that woman. To the extent that I can give any advice about that.

    Excellent Australian accent Anderson. Was that a walleroo noise?

    Sorry to miss Isabel on the blog tonight.

    Good night everyone.

    At first I did not believe the story about
    that animal being on the loose. Now there
    is video proof.

    Rush Limbaugh is a big boy and he makes a living off of the right to free speach. With as many people as he has offended today, yesterday, and last week alone ...Im sure he can handle comments by wanda sykes.
    im not mad at her / or him for that matter

    May 11, 2009 at 10:58 pm |
  13. Lisa Bouldin Carter

    comedy is comedy, at least Wanda was making jokes. When Rush speaks he considers himself as being serious and spewing hatetrad.
    I think laughing is much better than hate. Enjoyed the presidents jokes

    Comedy is serious relief no matter how serious the subject may had been. One can relate to the subject. Good Night, everyone!

    While you all are making such a big deal of Elizabeth Edwards forgiving her husband or airing his filthy laundry, you all are ignoring that we are in a new day when too many women believe that they are doing themselves a service by being just as filthy and dishonest in bring the question of infidelity to about 50/50. Unfortunately, as badly as many women felt infidelity was when some men acted as if it was a right of passage into cavemanism, too many women have, in recent years, managed to expect little virtue from them, cheating as much or more than men in recent years. Start mentioning the number of women who cheat in marriages and in relationships. Regretfully filthy living is becoming an equal opportunity disgrace for both genders.

    PTSD: Question the Soldiers childhood. Is he in an Incepted/open sub-conscious state(is he able to make a conceptive bond/be hypnotized?) Is the outburst really even his? Eating sperm without male notification just caused the death of five more people!!!

    Health coverage in America requires a zero unemployment rate unless and until an amendment is passed it sadly must remain State business.

    A zero unemployment rate is reached by the development of a New United States Postal Service: which will also make living cleaner and raise the average national standard of living to that of first place when listed on a comparison to the rest of the globe.

    Health coverage requires public utilities installed by the ease of the New United States Postal Service and the coverage of all emergency services via an amendment or the State. Emergency response times should be faster with a New United States Postal Service.

    Health coverage must be public when accounting children: this until they enter a full employment union working contract as overviewed by the Federal and State Senates in bulk union coverage methods: so contracting health coverage.

    Superficial elective surgeries should not be covered by medical insurance.

    The Student pays back the insurance provided through the Union dues providing an education to the next generation. The child is covered by the base taxation for grade school public education and again is payed back once employed.

    In regards to the comedy at the WHCD, I think it could be considered as going to far but when you look at the source, Wanda Sykes, her jokes are always very edgy and push the limits so I think it's much ado about nothing.

    Elizabeth Edwards had a choice, not get involved in her husband's campaign, knowing the cheat he is, she chose to participate in the cover up. She should have kept her story private... her husband probably cost Clinton Iowa, not that it matters now, but we will never know.
