Bill Maher: Sarah Palin "Shouldn't Be on Vacation, She Should Be in Summer School"

You knew Bill Maher would have a field day with Sarah Palin's revisionist American history lesson. And he did. Along with guests Melissa Harris-Perry and Larry King, Maher poked fun at the former Alaska governor's Totally Not Presidential Family Fun Bus Tour, her stealing of Mitt Romney's thunder, and of course her amazing retelling of the Paul Revere story (which had Harris-Perry howling with laughter). "She should not be on vacation, she should be in summer school," Maher joked. "Paul Revere was warning the British... about gun control! And Washington apparently was crossing the Delaware to bomb an abortion clinic." American history àla the Tea Party!

Then the conversation turned to the broader GOP 2012 presidential field, about which Maher had this to say: "I think anybody could be president in this dumb fuckin' country." Ouch.
