I try to avoid posts about right-wing clown Ann Coulter, but when someone says women shouldn’t vote, it's too good not to mention.

“If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, it’s a personal fantasy of mine, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.

“It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it’s the party of women and ‘We’ll pay for health care and tuition and day care — and here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?’”

Garance Franke-Ruta suggests, "I would like to see that quote, 'If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democratic president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, a personal fantasy of mine,' as the header on GOTV mailers along with pictures of Coulter and whichever candidates were stupid enough to associate themselves with her earlier in the year. I would like to see it on television ads."

bluegal: On topic, while we sometimes think of the blogosphere as "male-dominated," thanks to Catherine Morgan at Informed Voters for today's list of over one hundred women blogging on politics, from both sides of the spectrum. ahem.
