Submission + - Republicans Want To Keep Students Out Of Voting (washingtonpost.com) 2

siliconbits writes: New Hampshire's new Republican state House speaker is pretty clear about what he thinks of college kids and how they vote. They're "foolish," Speaker William O'Brien said in a recent speech to a tea party group.
"Voting as a liberal. That's what kids do," he added, his comments taped by a state Democratic Party staffer and posted on YouTube. Students lack "life experience," and "they just vote their feelings."

    Quick search gives one example [slashdot.org] (I'm linking to thread, that includes especially answers), and another [slashdot.org]. Or even this [slashdot.org] and that [slashdot.org].

    I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it. -- John Stuart Mill
