    Wanda Sykes Roasts Obama, Rips Rush

    Rush Limbaugh's gonna have a mouthful to say about Wanda Sykes.

    The actress/comedian roasted President Barack Obama and just about everyone else in Washington at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner last night.

    Sykes, who stars in The New Adventures of Old Christine, poked fun at everything from the president's shirtless photos ("I know you're into this transparency thing, but we don't need to see your nipples") to the Obamas giving the Queen an iPod ("What's she gonna do? Download Lady Gaga?").

    She also took hits at first lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

    However, the night's biggest quip was at Limbaugh's expense. In January, the conservative political commentator said he hoped "Obama fails," which Sykes called "treason."

    "You might want to look into this, sir, 'cause I think maybe Rush Limbaugh was the 20th highjacker but he was just so strung out on OxyContin he missed his flight," joked Sykes. Limbaugh admitted to being addicted to prescription drugs in 2003.

    On the jump, watch Obama's comedy stylings ("Dick Cheney is working on a book, tentatively titled How to Shoot Friends and Interrogate People") and see which celebs were on hand to yuck it up with our commander in chief.

    Plenty of celebs hobnobbed with Washington's press corps at the event, including Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Whoopi Goldberg, Eva Longoria Parker, Chris Tucker, George Lucas, Jon Bon Jovi, chef Gordon Ramsey, Dwayne Johnson, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Alicia Keys, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore and Tyra Banks.
