Women react after Saudi King gives them the right to vote

Why is there no acknowledgement from the right wingnut blogosphere regarding King Abdullah extending voting rights to the Muslim women in Saudi Arabia? These Islamaphobes constantly refer to the human rights violations occurring in other countries and blame them on Islam!

Now that a leader of one of the predominantly Muslim countries has lifted such a ban, one would think that there would at least be some casual acknowledgement of said freedom being given to Muslim women.

But I'm sure that they'd prefer to harp on the remaining human rights violations....and continue to blame Islam for their occurrences.
