In australia its against the law to NOT vote. EVERYONE has to vote, no matter how stupid, racist or ignorant they are.
Mandatory voting seems like a great idea in theory, in practice it seems like it means rednecks and hateful old people run the country all the time instead of half the time.
It was nice of Rachel to take the time to point out how the teabagger agenda might accidentally be construed as racist. I'm sure they'll get right to work on avoiding this understandable, yet false, interpretation of their goals.

This was the most offensive, yet least-surprising, thing I've seen in weeks.

Why are liberals so smug? Gee I wonder.
I had no idea what a "literacy test" actually consisted of. I could never pass any of those tests either, except being a white guy I *would* pass.
Let them. If there was a civics literacy test, the Republican Party would never win another election. Ever.
As reparations for 100 years of Jim Crow laws, they should get 100 years of Joe Cracker laws where whites who don't look and act like total bleeding heart liberals have to take a difficult civics exam before they can vote.
They're admitting that they're in the minority, they're calling the majority illiterate, but at least their moral majority is dead.
How about the test being based on understanding the political platform of the people you're voting for? That would unfairly exclude 99.9% of Sarah Palin voters, I know, but...
Oh wow no way the tea party movement has no concept of history you guys

See this is where the monster is about to come bursting out of the castle and lurch towards the village while the frantic doctor tries to sedate it
Sometimes I want to submerge my naked nubile body in the seething craziness of this "Tea Party" Movement. Get it all in my nooks and crannies whilst touching my nipples to the thought of Maddow.
Seriously, I love Maddow.
Let's protect the right to vote for the stupid. Obama must get elected somehow.
Nobody is talking about making the test biased against blacks. We just need tests to see if somebody can read.
Its never too late to one star a Maddow video.
Bill O'Reilly starting at 6:15!
I believe those Americans who leach off government money shouldn't vote either.
RIGGING ELECTIONS IS WHAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD HAVE WANTED!
Is Sarah Palin:
D) All of the above
They're shooting themselves in the foot here anyway---once you rule out all the dumbass illiterate rednecks you have nobody left to vote Republican anyway.
Fucking teabaggers. They whine incessantly about how government is becoming too big of a force in people's lives, then they advocate the administration of voting tests. Fucking hypocrite teabaggers.
