Obama Defender Sykes Taunts Romney with Polygamy Gag
Comedian Wanda Sykes does all she can to protect President Barack Obama with her humor. She's the epitome of the Palace Guard comedian crowd.
But Sykes is all too willing to mock Mitt Romney, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. Last night, Sykes played the discredited polygamy card to attack Romney's religion on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
Sykes and her host were talking about elements of her lesbian marriage. She mentioned that because they both work, it’s hard to manage the kids.
“Right now, I’m really trying to talk her into getting another wife,” Sykes joked. “We have a great nanny, but we need another wife. Nannies, they want days off, you know, they work certain hours. Wives, nobody cares. They just work.”
“You just say ‘thank you,’” Sykes continued, “send them some flowers, take them to dinner every now and then. You know, I told my wife you don’t have to worry about it because, you know, we’ll be married so you know there’s no sex involved.”
“That’s why I’m kind of leaning towards Romney right now,” added Sykes.
