More Joyful Noise From Kansas
I am happy to report that it seems that Vox Day and the fathers' rights advocates who endorsed Fathers' Manifesto aren't the only ones who think women voting is an atrocious idea.
Well, in case you've been too busy watching endless Law & Order reruns and don't know, Sen. Kay O'Connor, who is seeking the GOP nomination for secretary of state next year, also thinks that women should not have the right to vote. Here are her enlightened comments: "I think the 19th Amendment, while it's not an evil in and of itself, is a symptom of something I don't approve of," she said at the time. "The 19th Amendment is around because men weren't doing their jobs, and I think that's sad. I believe the man should be the head of the family. The woman should be the heart of the family."
I agree with her. I'm assuming that she took her own advice and did not vote for herself when she ran for Senator. I'm also assuming she's not married, because married women who run for political office are going against their God-ordained roles as helpmates to their husbands. They aren't supposed to be in leadership positions. With all the time political work takes they won't be home in time to make a delicious tuna casserole for their hard-working husbands. I admit that I get a scorching case of cognitive dissonance when trying to wrap my pretty little head around a woman who was voted into office saying that the 19th amendment is "sad", but I won't let that get in the way of my baseless opinion. Women are the heart of the family, but smart women delegate the chores. I have fairies who do my housekeeping. Every morning when I wake up, I go to the kitchen, and magically the dishes have been washed and there is fresh coffee brewing. Gotta love those fairies! However, I think they're unionizing. The floors haven't been washed in ages, and the clothes need folding. They even work without pay! See, if you know anything about fairies, you don't dare pay them or they get insulted and leave. Why bother with illegal aliens who work for a pittance when you can get fairies who work for free?
Just to make this even more enlightening, O'Connor is from that bastion of liberalism and common sense - Kansas. She is living proof that evolution is a crock.
Why stop at preventing women from voting? Let's go back even farther and prevent Blacks from voting. Let's prevent non-landowners from voting. Kansas should consider all that too, being the forward-thinking paradise that it is.
