When Robert Gibbs Has More Class Than the President

Wanda Sykes "wows" the White House Correspondent's Dinner -- and President Obama, from what the video shows -- with her special brand of tolerant, tasteful humor:

All of which prompts a moment of true class from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs:

Good for you, Robert. I mean that.

If only your boss had had enough class (or good sense) not to be caught on camera so visibly enjoying the idea of kidney failure being wished on the "20th hijacker"...

UPDATE: From Powerline:
I guess that's Obama's "new era of civility" in action. I don't want to be too hard on Obama, but . . . he should have been prepared for this sort of incident and avoided joining in the "fun" of wishing a political opponent dead.
