How Badly Did Sykes' Shtick Go Over?

This badly. Harry Smith of CBS is quoted as saying:

I ran into Keith Olbermann afterwards…And he said ‘I’m not sure, I think that was probably — probably in bad taste.

If the self-professed “next Edward R. Murrow”, purveyor of assassination jokes, who sat by as one of his guests called the Tea Party Protests “racism straight up” thinks your act might be in bad taste, you may be in trouble.
