REFORM IT, DON'T REPEAL IT:

Losing It: Democrats despair as Obama's campaign falters. (Michael Weiss, 09/17/2008, Weekly Standard)

As bellwethers of liberal demoralization about this election go, I've not yet come across anything so clanging as the following comment from Hannah Rosin, responding to the phenomenon of Sarah Palin: "One of my many depressed Obama-supporting friends suggests a tidy solution: Repeal the 19th Amendment." That would be the one that extends the franchise to women, and the point was driven home by the forum Rosin chose for relaying this morose alternative: the XX Factor feminist blog at Slate.

Just make it so only married women can vote and Democrats will never win a national election.
