What's good for the goose . . .

CBS Sports golf analyst David Feherty told a joke that had U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, all dead on an elevator.  The joke was stupid and inappropriate.  Feherty has apologized.  (Link to story here.)

Comedian Wanda Sykes appeared at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and told a "joke" about Rush Limbaugh dying.  And Barack Obama laughed.  (Link to story, and video, here.)

Will Sykes apologize?

Or is it okay in 2009 America to joke about the death of prominent people, as long as they're conservative?
