She's waiting for CroMagnon Man to club her and drag her to the cave


What century does Kay O’Connor want to return to?

“I think the 19th Amendment, while it’s not an evil in and of itself, is a symptom of something I don’t approve of…The 19th Amendment is around because men weren’t doing their jobs, and I think that’s sad. I believe the man should be the head of the family. The woman should be the heart of the family.”

— Kansas State Senator Kay O’Connor

She needs to get chummy with Kimberly Fletcher (see “The 50s are back: Wingnut Homemakers for America“). She also may also want to give Betty Miller of Christians Unlimited Ministries a ring (“What Does The Bible Say About The Duties of a Christian Wife“). It would make one hell of a sewing circle.

The kicker is this empty vessel wants to be the state’s top elections official. Isn’t that special?

Sen. Kay O’Connor announced Wednesday that she is seeking the GOP nomination for secretary of state next year. O’Connor, 63, has served in the Legislature since 1993.

In 2001, O’Connor received national attention for her remarks about the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution [above], ratified in 1920, which gave women the right to vote…On Wednesday, she dismissed the controversy — which included an unsuccessful drive to recall her from office — as “silliness.” She said she does not believe voters will consider it a significant issue.

“I am who I am. You don’t have to agree with everything I say,” O’Connor said. But Caroline McKnight, executive director of a group devoted to fighting conservatives in politics, said: “If she thinks it’s going to go away because she’s on a statewide ballot, she’s living on another planet.”
