Republican comic loves Bush's murdering ways.


Comedian Sheryl Underwood defies stereotypes. "I'm a sexually progressive, God-fearing black Republican," she says. Onstage, she comes off like the anti-Lewis Black, hurling jabs at the left. "You don't send no peace-loving liberal to talk to a murdering terrorist," she quips. "You send another killer."

Still, she tries to find common ground with her audiences, no matter how they vote. "I don't hurt people anymore," she says. "I used to be in the comedy mode of 'It came out of anger.' But really, it was passion."
