For goodness' sake. Ann Coulter? That's who Dowd felt a need to quote so respectfully on this topic? The same woman who said, "My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building"?
Coulter seems to suggest the voting age should be raised to 26 because young Americans don't have property, spouses, children, jobs or pay taxes. I may not yet have a spouse or children, but, come to think of it, neither does Ms. Coulter.
