Ann is crystal clear

About her position on women's suffrage, something that appears to have taken John Hawkins by surprise in his interview with her:

You caught a lot of flack for 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." Wasn't that just a tongue in cheek comment meant to point out the bad choices so many single women are making about which political party to support?

No, it's not tongue-in-cheek, it’s an inarguable statement of the facts.

What Ann understands and so many nominal conservatives do not is that women's suffrage is completely incompatible with human liberty or a republic as described in the U.S. Constitution. The two cannot co-exist. One cannot defend freedom on the basis of emotion, as fear always runs to promises of security, however nebulous.

It's interesting to note that since women received the right to vote, no bald politician has been elected in either the United States or the UK with the exception of Eisenhower and Churchill. (Atlee was bald too, but he was running against Churchill so there was no hair option in 1945.) And being bona fide war heroes, both Churchill and Eisenhower represented security even more than the archtypical tall politician with executive hair; neither one of them were capable of winning in less extraordinary times.
