She who brought us the "Great Schlep" in 2008 has now put forth a new video on the subject of Voter ID/Suppression in a dozen states.
It's a hoot. It's a howler. It's definitely Not. Safe. For. Work. And sadly, every bit of it is true.
In short, she said that “lawmakers are trying to fuck you in the asshole” and ended up recommending everyone buy guns, because states like Texas and Tennessee have passed laws that say gun permits work as voter IDs, but Social Security cards and student IDs do not.
This video was created by the Jewish Council for Education & Research, a super PAC supporting President Obama, published to YouTube on Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012.
I got nothing more, she said everything. If you have to explain a joke (or an election tragedy), it ain't funny.
8:04 AM PT: Ok, Ok, here's something I can add and that you can share with with your Republican acquaintances who don't cotton to Sarah Silverman and her potty mouth ways.
Brookings Institution nonresident fellow Michael McDonald explained to Fox News host Shepard Smith that the instances of in-person voter fraud were “very low.”So why do millions of Americans have to run around trying to find and pay the Poll Tax of getting a state photo ID in order to use their Constitutional Right of Voting - if the likelihood the fraud those ID's would prevent is 1 in a Billion? I'm just saying.
“We’ve had millions and millions of voters over the last years and the likelihood of vote fraud occurring is on the order of winning the lottery,” McDonald said.
“Winning the lottery is like 11 billion [to one],” Smith noted.
“Yes,” McDonald agreed. “It’s a very rare, infrequent sort of thing. But when it does happen, we are concerned. And election officials do take these allegations seriously, they investigate them fully. Usually what happens is, the allegations come out and then afterwards we find out that maybe someone signed on the wrong line on a poll book or something of that nature, and that’s the source of the error. It wasn’t really that vote fraud occurred.”
8:36 AM PT: Rachel also did a piece on this last night.
