WATCH: Wanda Sykes Is A Triple Threat To The GOP

“I’m a black, gay woman. I think the only way for the GOP to hate me more is if I sent them a video of me rolling around in a pile of Welfare checks.”

Armed with a bag of punchlines and a bucket of truth, funny lady Wanda Sykes is prepared to talk politics when NewNowNext Vote with Wanda Sykes premieres tonight on Logo at 10/9 c.

Wanda will break down the pressing issues of the 2012 election with a panelist of distinguished guests including noted sassbot Congressman Barney Frank, GOProud’s resident comedian Jimmy LaSalvia and MSNBC anchor/blushing groom Thomas Roberts.

Fellow comedienne Sandra Bernhard will then host Sound Off with Sandra Bernhard, the live interactive after show where viewers can tweet in their questions to Sandy B using the hashtag #NNNVote. Needless to say, political correctness will be checked at the door.

Check out another clip from Wanda’s special below:

      As a gay man am I supposed to be a single issue voter and not care about the victims of Obama’s drone strikes, his signing NDAA, his medical marijuana users attacks, his attacks on protestors rights, of the many ways he’s acted as GWBs third term? Give me a break. I know the LGBT mega groups funded by corpate America and the blogs that want to be in the in-crowd cover for the 2party system charade of war, poverty and erosion of civil liberties but I have better ethics to support these evil people.

      @jeff4justice: Jeff, I hear ya. I’ve spent the last year or so talking with other progressive friends about all the stuff you mention and whether or not we’d vote for Obama in 2012. I hate the fact that the closer we get to the election, the more I feel myself going back into “pick the lesser of two evils” mode. A lot of smart people have written about this, as I’m guessing you know. Some, like Chris Hedges, Mike Feder, et al, are saying the only thing left is for mass uprising and non-violent revolt. I’m coming to believe that’s true, yet that nagging question still hangs on: are we even marginally better with Obama in office than Romney/Ryan? So you’re not alone out there… there are other LGBT folks who are not “one issue” voters. I just wish, for once in my life, I could go to the voting booth and not be in “lesser of two evil” mode…. perhaps it’s time for parliamentary multi-party system here in the States. At least that way you can get some semblance of minority representation.

      @Aidan8: Amen and I empathize with your concern. However, at age 32, I’ve never been convinced of the 2-party system. To me voting for blatant liars is mental illness – Stockholm syndrome and normalcy bias. If our choices were Stalin and Hitler would voting for a lesser of evil make any more sense.

      Also, let’s remember Democrats helped elect Alito and Roberts to the Supreme Court in the Bush years.

      However, if one just cannot vote for alternative party for President, at least vote alternative party for statewide races – unless you live in a state where that option has more or less been removed as is the case here in CA thanks to the Top 2 general election.

      Stay strong!

      Yes okay jeff, vote for Romney, who will not pull out of the war either and continue to kill your precious human race.

      @jeff4justice:

      Then vote for Romney. Let’s see if he cares for any of the issues that you are assuming Obama is not taking care of. If Romney wins, drone strikes will increase, NDAA situation would be worse, medical marijuana? protestors rights? not on your life. And he will definitely be in the mold of GWB. Give me a break!

      If your “ethics” lead you to vote for Romney, or support the candidate who actually is worse on these issues that you care about, then I pity you.

      @FStratford:

      “If Romney wins, drone strikes will increase,”

      Obama has outnumbered Bush’s drone strikes by 5 to 1. Do any of you guys actually check ANYTHING yo say about politics?

      And LOL you “Progressives” who still have no clue that your philosophy means the biggest government possible, intruding in every single aspect of EVERYONE’S life, choking us with regulations, taxes and fees, control and even now, SUING GALLOP for not liking their poll results. Alinksy is alive and well…at least until November.

      Or maybe you weren’t BELIEVING Obama at the convention, he’s just getting started so don’t worry, pretty soon you’ll be enjoying the same ~lifestyle as Cuba…USA business are paying the highest rate in the civilized world even 20% more than RUSSIA FFS:

      “Now, I won’t pretend the path I’m offering is quick or easy. I never have. You didn’t elect me to tell you what you wanted to hear. You elected me to tell you the truth.”

      “And the truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. It will require common effort, shared responsibility and the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one.”

      LOL oh yeah I can’t wait for 4 more years of this crap. Obviously you pay no attention to issues MOST PEOPLE care about but here’s an example: The “auto industry” wasn’t saved, the auto industry UNION was saved and now every one of those stupid Chevy Volts (now suspended from production) were costing TAXPAYERS $40,000 per unit with Obama pretending he could force that P.O.S. on people FFS.

      Romney’s solution was the correct CLEAN RESTRUCTURING BANKRUPTCY solution that EVERY business has the right to do legally, but NO – Obama uses that to vilify him to Boobus Americanus who doesn’t even know what a bankruptcy is.

      You may detest social policies of conservatives but lying to yourselves about your chosen candidates or reality is ridiculous.

      @ScaryRussianHeather: You invoke Saul Alinksy and imply that somehow Obama is the equivalent?? Are you fucking kidding me Heather?? Obama is no liberal, no progressive, and certainly no Alinksy. That you invoke/imply this shows that you are just another ideologue spouting your own brand. I could have a real conversation with a real conservative, but I can’t do it unless reality is the basis. You’re obviously not in touch with reality.

      @Red Meat: Nope, not buying into the fear-based 2party system charade. If you vote to condone the charade of lie-based war, poverty and erosion of civil liberties then that’s on you.

      @ScaryRussianHeather: Romney is as much of a monster as Obama. Both cowards are too pussy to debate their alternative party options and media (including queer media) is covering for them.
