Now, in Wisconsin, we have another two greats teaming up
One half of the new comedy duo is long-time funny man, Charlie "I got nothing" Sykes.
Joining him, fresh from his gig with Media matters, is Brian Sikma. Sikma of course is the guy behind such classics, "Hey, those women can't sign - they're black!" and "Adultery Is OK, If You Time It Right."
Their first routine is "Did Lena Taylor Aid A Felon To Vote." In this skit, they accuse State Senator Lena Taylor of aiding a known convict in voting illegally. The made a stink of it for a whole week, building up for the punch line.
But it was Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Dan Bice who delivered the punch line: He was eligible to vote because he was no longer on papers.
You see, Sikma and Sykes, who often call Media Trackers as a reliable news source, didn't know enough to contact the Sheriff's Office to get the information:
Sikma said his group went through Collins' county court records but failed to check with the sheriff's office. Sikma said he was unaware that Clarke's shop would provide information regarding the release dates of inmates.When asked if he would apologize, Sikma said he would not, saying that he stood by his false information. Classy.
I'm not expecting Sykes to stand up and be a man about it either.
So, now that Sikma and Sykes have been caught slandering and libeling Sen. Taylor for a week, which is only the latest in a long string of lies told by both of them, I bet you're wondering where the comedy comes in.
No one should ever take these two clowns seriously.
