The Power of the Virtual Pen

Kuwait must have read my post back on May 3. How else can one explain this?

"Kuwait's Parliament granted full political rights to women on Monday, making way for them to vote and run for office in parliamentary and local elections for the first time in the country's history. The surprise amendment to Kuwait's election law ends a decades-long struggle by women's rights campaigners for full suffrage, and promises to redefine the city-state's political landscape."
Although no one seems to have seen it coming:
"The vote climaxed an extraordinary turn of events, just two weeks after the Parliament had thwarted a measure allowing women to take part in city council elections."
Hah! Apparently my small cache of readers includes the Kuwaiti parliament, whom I have shamed into doing the right thing.

Clearly then, the implication is that the White House has no shame. But we knew that anyway.
