McCain Says Women Should Have Right To Vote

Sedona, Arizona - Senator John McCain, speaking from his wife's sprawling multimillion dollar estate in picturesque Sedona that reporters sometimes refer to as his "cabin", today came out strongly in favor of allowing women to vote in federal and state elections.

Said McCain, "Black people have been able to vote for almost forty years now and I see no reason why we shouldn't give that right to women, provided of course that they are able to provide three different official IDs and are able to complete a competency test given by a poll supervisor the same way they do it for the Black folk."

When McCain was politely informed by Terry Moran of ABC News that women already have the right to vote and that poll tests were ruled unconstitutional, he replied, "No, I'm sure I'm right about this, Terry. You better check your facts."

A shaken and chastised Terry Moran then apologized to McCain for his inappropriate behavior in questioning the senator's grasp of the issues and said it would never happen again. Moran then asked McCain if he could have a second helping of barbecue ribs and another Margarita.

Roberts, Scalia, Alito and Thomas are making sure that women are second class citizens already.

Here's an amusing anecdote about McCain (in a new book about him) that illuminates his attitude about women, copied from HuffPo:

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.
