Presidents and Their Mothers
RAY: And I did give a hint that my teenage son, who is a brilliant student...
RAY: Did not know the answer. Did not get it, because it's out of his time frame.
RAY: And the answer is: Woodrow Wilson. Not because...
TOM: She didn't like him.
RAY: Woody's mother didn't like him. It's--believe it or not, for all you youngsters out there--until 1920, women were not allowed to vote in this country.
RAY: And because Wilson's term ended before women had the right to vote, she could not have legally voted for her own son.
RAY: 1920, I believe, is when women, yes, got the right to vote.
TOM: 1920! What barbarians! I mean, what kind of a democracy is this? All men are created equal, but not women!
RAY: Well, and that's exactly what the Constitution said: "All men."
TOM: All men. It said that. And it's specific. Parenthesis: (Not women.) Hey, Mabel! Where do you think you're going?
RAY: Who's our winner this week?
TOM: Wow! The winner is Lu Shirley. Mmm. And only judging from their handwriting, reading Lu--L-U--is female.
RAY: Oh, yeah. For, like, Lulu.TOM: Lulu, yeah. She's from either Papillon or Papillon, Nebraska.
