John Derbyshire Wows the Ladies

In an interview with Alan Colmes, John Derbyshire of the National Review makes the case for repealing the right of women to vote:

The conservative case against it is that women lean hard to the left. They want someone to nurture, they want someone to help raise their kids, and if men aren’t inclined to do it — and in the present days, they’re not much — then they’d like the state to do it for them.

[…]

Among the hopes that I do not realistically nurse is the hope that female suffrage will be repealed. But I’ll say this – if it were to be, I wouldn’t lose a minute’s sleep.

He later said that he’s in favor of repealing the 1964 Civil Rights Act because we “shouldn’t try to force people to be good.”

Hey, conservatives; how’s that outreach to women and minority voters going for you?
