Sarah Silverman Mouths Off on Voter ID Laws


Comedian Sarah Silverman has never been known to hide her politics or her potty mouth. But in a recent Web video she made criticizing the wave of voter ID laws that have been sweeping across the United States, she may have outdone herself both for directness and comical potty mouthery.

How direct is she? The video opens with: "Hey, black people, old people, poor people and students. Guess what you all have in common? Lawmakers are trying to fuck you in your assholes."

Her solution? Get everyone a gun permit, since those ID cards are acceptable forms of voter identification, unlike student IDs, Social Security cards or veteran IDs.
