|02:27 pm - Oh, so that's what suffrage was about!|
"I am especially proud to say, in the week we celebrate the anniversary of women's suffrage, [she is] a devoted wife and a mother of five."
-Senator McCain, about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin
Between 6:30 and 7:00 minutes into this video.
I didn't know suffrage was about being devoted to your husband and popping out babies. . .

I'm glad someone else caught this
I was listening to his speech, and was like "did he really just say that?" Fortunately CSPAN puts their closed captions on the internet almost in real time, so I went back and checked. And sure enough, he said it. It's as if he's saying, it's nice that women have the vote and all, but obviously their most important roles in life are as devotees to men and nuturers of children.
