Put an aspirin between your knees, ladies

Foster Friess

You just can’t make this sh*t up. We already know that Rick Santorum is a troglodyte creep with astonishingly retrograde ideas about women (see: “Rick Santorum wants women to have lots of babies, whether they like it or not“). I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that his billionaire benefactor is too. Here’s what Foster Friess had to say today, with the best bit emphasized:

I get such a chuckle when these things come out. Here we have millions of our fellow Americans unemployed, we have jihadist camps being set up in Latin America, which Rick has been warning about, and people seem to be so preoccupied with sex. I think that says something about our culture. We maybe need a massive therapy session so we can concentrate on what the real issues are. And this contraceptive thing, my gosh, it’s such inexpensive. Back in my days, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.

Watch for yourself:


As the Rachel Maddow blog points out:

That the comments coincided with the House hearing on contraception access — featuring a male-only panel of conservative critics — only makes the larger Republican war on contraception that much more obvious.
