Maher: Southerners Should Only Celebrate Confederate Heritage Once a Year - 'St. Cracker's Day'

As NewsBusters has been reporting, Bill Maher spent much of his week bashing red states.

After taking a cheap shot at Kansas early in Friday's Real Time on HBO, Maher took aim at Southerners saying that they should only celebrate their Confederate heritage once a year - "We'll call it 'St. Cracker's Day'" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

BILL MAHER: New Rule, if Irish Americans can manage to celebrate their heritage in just one day, then Southerners should be able to do also. That’s right, instead of spending the whole year flying the Confederate Flag and saying “The South Will Rise Again,” you get just one day. We’ll call it “St. Cracker's Day.” And we even have the t-shirt [“Kiss Me I’m Yer Sister”]. [Laughter and applause] Tough show for the South.


Hysterical, isn't it?
