Best birth control?
[UPDATE: Feb. 17: About half a day after making his controversial remarks, Foster Friess did a second MSNBC interview and said he'd been joking. Doubtful most women are laughing.]

[ORIGINAL POST, 10:42 a.m., Feb. 16:] On MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports this morning, a major backer to Rick Santorum's Republican presidential campaign declared that the best contraceptive method is for women to put aspirin "between their knees."

"Back in my day, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraceptives," said Foster Friess. "The gals put it between their knees and it wasn't that costly."

Friess' assertion stunned Mitchell, who went silent for several seconds.

Appearing live on the show from Phoenix, Friess--a prominent Christian conservative businessman with rascal tendencies--said that Santorum has "strong national credentials" and conservative social views that make sense.

He is a major contributor to Santorum's Super PAC that has supplied the former Pennsylvania senator with critical television advertising support in the race to beat Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination.

Friess is also tied to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who visited Orange County Republicans in January during a campaign stop that coincided with the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles.

Though several prominent OC Republicans like Congressman Dana Rohrabacher are backing Romney, other activists are anxious for Santorum to visit OC now that it looks as if he is the only remaining serious alternative to the the former Massachusetts governor.

I think the best birth control is if the Woman didnt shower for weeks and had braided armpit hair along with a "Vote Obama" button on her spaghetti stained tank top.

The Republican implosion is just great!  Wow!  Mr. Friess, like it or not, you have gone viral!  Can Republicans find more ways to lose an election?  It's fantastic.  Other than the lame candidates and their SuperPAC backers, they can blame Conservative pundits like Sean Hannity for the inability to field a competitive candidate.  As long as Sean is around, Republican may never win the Presidency again.

Now why in the world would a woman put an aspirin between her knees? This is just plain silly. There is no way. Doubt this has ever happened.

If Santorum is the nominee, then the only ad Obama needs is a picture of the Pope, with the words: "Do you really want THIS man running America?" Even the born-again Baptists would be lining up to vote for Obama.

That didnt work when Kennedy ran and thats exactly what people were saying about him. 

I think Santorum himself will be his own downfall the GOP field is just weak...  Besides you want to have a little fun? Google the Name Santorum and look at about the 3rd entry.

Disgusting!

I saw that movie (on TV), while living in Germany. In German it sounds even better

Soylent Grün ist Menschenfleish.

If someone compares you to a dog-fucker (which I'm sure is often in your case) you have a right to be a little bitchy.

I know. To make up such a name and then 'Googlebomb' it is pretty bitchy in my book.
