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. . .

It was sexist, but I was more offended by the number of people that did not know what 'suffrage' means.

Indeed, for all the terrible and offensive things that segment proves, it really shows that this is something we really need to talk about in history classes. How is it that there are people who managed to graduate high school without knowing what the suffrage movement was?

On that level, I can appreciate the commentary.
