Wanda Sykes cuts through the muck of the 2012 Presidential Election as only she can with a rapid-fire, roundtable discussion of political issues featuring a bi-partisan panel of politicos in Logo’s NewNowNext Vote with Wanda Sykes election special.
Says Wanda to the attending Republican panelists: “I’m a black, gay woman. I think the only way to make the GOP hate me more is if I sent them a video of me rolling around on a pile of welfare checks.”
The show aims to educate, activate and entertain viewers while shining a spotlight on the state of national politics through an LGBT lens. The first of several specials was taped on Friday in front of a live studio audience in Times Square in New York City, and the panel got into some heated (and frequently comedic) debates on topics such as the economy, healthcare, education, women’s rights, job protection and gay marriage.
We’ve got four advance clips below, but the first full special airs this Monday, September 10th at 10PM ET/PT on Logo.

Brad Blakeman, Republican Strategist and member of George W. Bush Senior Staff
Barney Frank, Congressman and former Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee
John Fund, Senior Editor at American Spectator
