I didn't think it was possible to make the American right any more nutso, but lo! the end of the Bush era appears to have done it.

Behold! A libertarian arguing that enfranchising women is responsible for big government and thus all of our economic woes:

The 1920s were the last decade in American history during which one could be genuinely optimistic about politics. Since 1920, the vast increase in welfare beneficiaries and the extension of the franchise to women — two constituencies that are notoriously tough for libertarians — have rendered the notion of “capitalist democracy” into an oxymoron.

Awesome.
