Coulter: Repeal 26th Amendment

Coulter: Repeal 26th Amendment

Don't give the Iowa City council any ideas, Ann Coulter:
We must repeal the 26th Amendment.

Adopted in 1971 at the tail end of the Worst Generation's anti-war protests, the argument for allowing children to vote was that 18-year-olds could drink and be conscripted into the military, so they ought to be allowed to vote....

Those of you who have made it to age 26 without dying in a stupid drinking game -- and I think congratulations are in order, by the way -- understand how insane it is to allow young people to vote.

It would almost be tolerable if everyone under the age of 30 just admitted they voted for Obama because someone said to them, "C'mon, it's really cool! Everyone's doing it!"

It would make more sense to give public school teachers and college professors 20 votes apiece than to allow their impressionable students to vote.
The scary thing is how many townies here in The People's Republic (???) seem to agree with her.
