Isn’t it obvious? We gave women the right to vote. As Raw Story reports:
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, a tea party activist that’s appeared several times on Fox News, and founder of an organization where Sean Hannity serves as an advisory board member, said in a sermon recently published to YouTube that America’s greatest mistake was allowing women the right to vote, adding that back in “the good old days, men knew that women are crazy and they knew how to deal with them.”
I’m completely on Patterson’s side, in fact, I’m sure he agrees with me that the real problems began when we extended the franchise to anyone other than white male landowners over 21. I can see a new movement to cast off the vote arising for the glory of our nation – women, poor folk, non-white folk joining together to reclaim their lost legacy – marital rape, domestic violence, slavery, illiteracy, being 3/5ths of a human being, lacking legal personhood and disenfranchisement. Me, I’m going to work on the law that says my husband can beat me as long as it is with a stick no thicker than his wrist – bring that one back, baby!
I keep hoping that we have achieved peak stupid, but I fear not so far….this might be close, though.
