I think people who are this fucking ugly shouldn't be allowed to vote.

I think people who are this fucking ugly shouldn't be allowed to vote.

Women shouldn’t be allowed to vote, because they tend to vote in ways that I, personally, do not agree with. Who died and made you General Zod, Derbyshite?

Honestly, I can’t even get too worked up over people who are anti-women’s suffrage. In 2009. Because you know they’re only saying it for shock value and negative attention. (In which case, I probably shouldn’t have blogged about it. Too late!)

What’s the most troubling about it to me is that you can extrapolate from this that Derbyshire (and Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin and all the other barking wingnuts that have started tossing this old canard around recently) also doesn’t think that young people, or minorites, or gay people, or handicapped people, or transgendered one-armed Jewish Hindu immigrants should be allowed to vote. Because they probably also vote for non-officially-sanctioned-by-John-Derbyshire candidates, propositions, bonds and measures. Basically, he wants to return to the good ol’ days of white, property-owning male votes only.

Which is obviously never going to happen, so ha ha Derbsy, enjoy your life in this nightmare of universal suffrage. I hope you live to be 100 years old.
