Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Dem vs. Repub 1983 Ball Game - Starring Ron Paul

with some commentary by Barney Frank, I think. Bizarre and yet entertaining for this Sunday. From back in the days when people actually followed baseball, before the Strike and all that.

Some shaky video around 6 min.

What's hilarious is that the Republicans put Ron Paul way down in the lineup to begin with to the bemusement of the commentators. Even playing a game, the guy can't get a break.
