National Reviews Derbyshire on the Repeal of Female Suffrage: "I wouldn't lose a Minutes sleep."

How is it possible that in a recent poll the Republicans are in striking distance to win a number seats back in congress, after watching them melt down over health care reform? Is it because Republicans have found their voice. Have they taken a new direction after realizing they were a little out of touch? You won't believe some of the suggestions coming from the new, more radical intellectual conservative elites. Check out the following, courtesy of Think Progress:

"John Derbyshire, a British-American conservative author and columnist for the National Review, has written a new book titled We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism. The book contains a section called “The Case Against Female Suffrage.” Yesterday on his radio show, Alan Colmes asked Derbyshire to articulate his argument."

DERBYSHIRE: Among the hopes that I do not realistically nurse is the hope that female suffrage will be repealed.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.

COLMES: We’d be a better country if women didn’t vote?

DERBYSHIRE: Probably. Don’t you think so?

COLMES: No, I do not think so whatsoever.

DERBYSHIRE: Come on Alan. Come clean here [laughing].

COLMES: We would be a better country? John Derbyshire making the statement, we would be a better country if women did not vote.

DERBYSHIRE: Yeah, probably .
