National Review Blogger Suggests Ending Women's Right To Vote

I don't usually cover Republicans saying crazy things here, because I don't feel like I have a whole lot to say in response that someone else isn't already saying. But this is sort of a special case: Michael Walsh of the National Review has suggested repealing the 19th amendment. Yes, the one that gave women the right to vote. There's no indication that anything satirical is going on here -- he says that repeal of amendments 16-19 is "something I’ve been advocating for years now." As far as I can tell, there's no pushback from anybody on the National Review group blog.

Update: Amanda is good on how Walsh is trying to communicate.
