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. . .

Coming from McCain, it might not be the nonsequitur it appears to be, but instead is just poorly worded. Instead, perhaps, what he meant to say was something like, "In the week we celebrate the anniversary of women's suffrage, I am proud to say that [she] hasn't forgotten her proper place as a woman. Despite so many women getting uppity and donning trousers and stealing men's jobs, Sarah is still a real woman, a devoted wife and mother of five."

...which is why McCain very desperately needed a female running mate to salvage his reputation among women.

Clearly he misspoke. I mean, just look at the grammar of what came out of his mouth. I appreciate you filling in the clear tone of what he was going for.
