Obamatard of the Day: Wanda Skyles

I wonder if Wanda Skyles was born stupid or just took too many stupid pills?   It is hard to tell.   Gateway Pundit [1] is attributing this quote to Skyles:

“You’ve had your fair share of critics. Rush Limbaugh said this administration fails. He just wants the country to fail. To me that’s treason.”

Now I am not a juris doctor, but even I know, or can google, the definition of treason, Legal Dictionary [2]:

The betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.

[…]

Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

Treason is defined as an act.  What Skyles attributed to Rush Limbaugh was a thought.    A thought is not an act, except maybe in Obamaland.    Pity for Skyles she too stupid to tell the difference.

Addendum: (Eric)

The bottom line is that Wanda Syskes is on the down side of an overlong career, and figured the best way to deal with her issue was to play to her audience. I submit that the reason she came up with these lines isn’t so much that she actually thinks that way, but that her audience agreed with it. A sense of what each particular audience will find amusing is after all a comedian’s bread and butter. In the case of the people there that night, she’s read them correctly.

A lot of the discussion we’re going to hear about this event will lay the whole thing on Sykes… and doubtless, she’s an idiot, acting in desperation to re-kick her carreer. The real issue, however, the one nobody will mention is how many people in her audience… the Democrats and the press… agree with her… how correctly she identified the way her audience thinks .   In answer, The Weekly Standard notes Obama was yukking it up pretty good at Sykes’ statements. Has vid of it, too [3]. Based on the vid, I’d say she nailed it pretty well.

Sykes has done us a service, the degree of which I suspect she doesn’t understand herself. She’s identified the real problem for us.
