Maher: "Make It Harder For Teabaggers To Vote By Bringing Back The Literacy Test"
In the "New Rule" segment on the Friday broadcast of "Real Time" on HBO, host Bill Maher said if there are Voter ID laws then there should be literacy tests for "teabaggers."
"So, I say this. Fair is fair. If Republicans can make it harder for minorities to vote with their tricky ID laws, then we get to make it harder for teabaggers to vote by bringing back the literacy test," HBO's Bill Maher said to applause from his "Real Time" audience.
"You can ask me for a picture ID and I'll ask you to count to twenty without taking off your shoes," Maher proposed. "And you can't vote unless you can answer these simple questions: One, what did we call the World War that came before World War II? Two, seven tenths of the earth is covered by a, water; b, Mountain Dew; c, your ass. And three, name a book that's not about vampires or spanking."
