Ann Coulter was recently quoted in The New York Observer, saying, “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?’’
Because of the First Amendment, she’s allowed to say what she wants. However, according to her, the 19th Amendment ruined a personal fantasy of hers. This really makes me wonder, does a well-educated woman really think like this in the 21st century, or is she saying this just to be heard?
Ms. Coulter has been engaged several times, but never married. Yet was quoted saying that women were voting stupidly, most notably, single women. Most well-known for pushing the limits, and fired, at least twice, from MSNBC, she says what she wants to say, and she knows that it will get people to talk. She wrote five books, and all have appeared on New York Times Best Seller list.
She definitely gets herself in the news, but is this the type of supporter that the Republican candidates really want? Their biggest competitor, besides themselves, is a woman. A strong woman, who was a soccer mom, and pushes for healthcare, tuition, and day care. Those exact women, that her political party needs on their side.
So while Ms. Coulter believes that the 19th amendment might be her worst nightmare, I somehow think some Republicans might be cursing the first. – Courtney Lawrence
