As not only one of the funniest people in the world, but also a gay black woman, you'd think that Wanda Sykes might have a couple of things to say about civil liberties, politics and the upcoming election. Too bad nobody ever thought to give her a TV show in which she could talk about all that.
Unless… Oh, wait? What's this here?
"Seems like the GOP, they wanna take their hand out of my pocketbook but then shove it up my uterus."
For the record, I knew about the show the whole time. Since, like, before I even started writing this post.
The first of two NewNowNext Vote with Wanda Sykes election specials will premiere tonight at 10/9c on Logo.

Did you hear? Someone said something really awful. I mean, it was just so callous and offensive. Basically just shock for the sake of shock without any regard for feelings or repercussions. And then, after that, Wanda Sykes made a joke about that guy's kidneys failing…
John Oliver joins the discussion over here.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

Wanda Sykes is not the kind of person who needs a whole lot of prodding to express her opinions, as evidenced by this exchange (well, not really an "exchange" so much as a "rant") between her and Jay Leno…
Here's my favorite little bit of her rant…
"Jay, I'm a feminist. but I'm sorry, that woman's crazy. That's a crazy, scary lady right there. Gun-toting and, you know, shooting caribou. I mean, come on, Jay. You ask me what do I think about her? There's really nothing to think about. I mean, we don't know anything about her.
"They don't let her talk. They say, 'Oh, she's meeting with the world leaders.' But there's no reporters. I'm like, is she meeting with the world leaders, or did you take her to the Epcot Center? Let her drink around the world? You know, because I've done that. Maybe I should be Secretary of State.
"I have more — you know, the woman, she just got a passport last year. She has been to Mexico. Does this ring a bell, George W. Bush? Come on.
"This was — she hasn't been anywhere. She was like, "I can see Russia from my backyard." What — what — what — while you were delivering letters to Santa Claus at the North Pole? I mean, are we stupid, you know?"
