08/21/2005 Entry: "Women's social rights are not critical to the evolution of democracy"

"MR. GERECHT: Actually, I'm not terribly worried about this. I mean, one hopes that the Iraqis protect women's social rights as much as possible. It certainly seems clear that in protecting the political rights, there's no discussion of women not having the right to vote. I think it's important to remember that in the year 1900, for example, in the United States, it was a democracy then. In 1900, women did not have the right to vote. If Iraqis could develop a democracy that resembled America in the 1900s, I think we'd all be thrilled. I mean, women's social rights are not critical to the evolution of democracy. We hope they're there. I think they will be there. But I think we need to put this into perspective."
Reuel Marc Gerecht, Meet the Press, August 21, 2005 (Via Mr. Dan Kelly and Sisyphus Shrugged)

Not even kissed while being fucked. Unreal. Oh, and by the way, 1900 was a long time ago and not a great year at that. 1920 and 1964 were much better years for democracy and the country.

Hey there, women in countries where they let you vote, did you know the people running the US believe women's social rights are not critical to the evolution of democracy? Yeah, me, too. But like you, I never thought they'd have the unmitigated gall to say it on national TV in front of God and everyone.

Regime change anyone? Because if the women of the US don't vote to evolve our democracy starting next year, if not sooner, you can pucker up and kiss your social rights, as well as your asses, good-bye.

Women of California can vote against whatever bullshit our so called governor tries to dish up in the upcoming "special" election we can't afford, such as his desire to redistrict California in the Repukes favor. We can stop the bastards right here on that.

Oh, by the way, just in case you were wondering, according to this, the women of Iraq have had the right to vote since 1980. Progress? I think not. Be warned, sisters, the clock can go backward in bush world.
