Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorums big mega-donor kicked up a controversy over the issue of contraception today when he urged a return to the good old days when gals had a simple solution for it: aspirin between the knees.
Were not kidding.
Wealthy entreprenuer Foster Freiss, whos backed Santorums Super-PAC, made the statements to MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell today, after being asked if his candidate has expressed some extremist views on contraception.
He appeared to express wonder that women even have to worry about the issue of paying for contraception these days, Politico reports.
On this contraceptive thing, my Gosh its such [sic] inexpensive, he added. You know, back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees, and it wasnt that costly.

He is old and it was a joke. Libs have no sense of humor. they have Bill Maher
That’s a riot. “Back in my day. . . .”
I don’t think SFGate gets the joke.
What a Neanderthal!
Real civilized people have free, indiscriminate sex with multiple partners, and then discard the ensuing procreation.
That is the sign of an advanced society.
and romney gets a new life....thanks foster
I saw it and he did nothing of the sort wishing we went back to the old days. Bullshit right there
Between the knees! is the way I heard it.
To quote the Santorum backer more accurately,
girls, hold that “aspirin between the knees.”
I think it was a damn joke, people.
Andrea was SHOCKED! Imagine women in control of events. Quite shocking, and yet...well maybe my wife is a throwback like me.
Kinda odd how they’re acting like Santorum is walking into a trap but they’re the ones wanting to keep those embarrassing conservative ideals out of the public eye.
In the “let’s pretend to be outraged and not know an old joke” category.
What you may be missing is that most women aren’t going to think it’s funny or a joke, and most younger people are going to think it’s bizarre and unsettling.
This is not the 1950’s. We have to win with the electorate as it is today, which means not telling us about what Rick thinks is morale, whether people should practice birth control, or whether women should work.
Rick spells certain and landslide defeat if we nominiate him. Gingrich is light years better.
No. I think Santorum is going to discover that there are many conservative Republicans like myself, married with children and faithful to our spouses who use birth control as part of responsible family planning. I certainly take offense to the notion that birth control is only used by people wanting indiscriminate, irresponsible sexual encounters with multiple partners.
Foster was jokingly referring to abstinence, so ? what now ? the Newt supporters are against Abstinence and for more Government social programs ?
Oh you misunderstand. I am not condemning BC. I’m a big fan of contraception.
I’m merely commenting on the general attitude of the left.
This guy was talking about abstinence, not contraception.
The aspirin between the legs is an old joke. If a woman is holding an aspirin between the legs, it becomes difficult to have sex.
