Skip to comments.Santorum mega-backer on contraception: Girls, just put aspirin between the legs (VIDEO)
Posted on 02/16/2012 3:25:01 PM PST by SmithL
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.
So, now we’ve come to the point where not only does everything our candidate utter get torn apart by a rabid media, but everything anyone says who SUPPORTS them is fair game, too.
Meanwhile, NOTHING ** ANY ** Democrat says (or does) is challenged, or even open for debate - and we are stupid, ignorant, and racist for even thinking about questioning them.
This crap HAS to be changed. Hopefully, Santorum will come out and laugh at them and make them angrier. That would be one way he could possibly impress me.
No, Newt supporters will find this funny. What might confuse us is that Rick Santorum himself has a funny bone by pass and it was a damned success.
Freiss is funny. Santorum is totally 100 per cent prudish and humorless to the core. Totally. Let Freiss run and Rick run the PAC.
Soro has NAZi sympathies.
The Governor of North Carolina, an Obama backer ‘joked’ that we cancel elections.
But nothing is as ‘offensive’ as telling people not to have irresponsible sex...
Channeling their inner Rachael Maddow.
Souls are non refundable. Once sold, they’re gone.
“Yes people, this is the unintended consequence of not teaching the virtues of abstinence.”
Maybe if Newt practiced a little abstinence, he would still be Speaker of the House today.
This is such a gaff in which the late night comedians will have a field day now (not good as well as skipping the GA debate)
What ever happened to the birth control that is the most effective called Noassatall???
And what does this have to do with Rick Santorum? Is he responsible for jokes told by the guy who runs an independent SuperPac? Don’t vote for Foster for President if you think it’s a problem.
If I held Gingrich responsible for what some of his backers here said, he couldn’t win for dog catcher.
Rick is clearing the field for Gingrich in Georgia. I thought that was what Gingrich folks were for now, splitting up the delegates to stop Romney.
What possible good would it be for Santorum to debate Gingrich in Georgia when Romney isn’t going to be there — the moderators will make it a non-stop attack on the two conservatives, and Ron Paul will help.
"I'm going to say something funny, but it might take your average brain dead moron more than 3 seconds to get it - maybe I'll just keep quiet."
We'd be so much further ahead of the game.
“What ever happened to the birth control that is the most effective called Noassatall???”
I think a picture of Michele Obama’s would be more effective.
“I’m going to say something funny, but it might take your average brain dead moron more than 3 seconds to get it - maybe I’ll just keep quiet.”
That would disqualify 99% of all freepers from running for office.
FR has elements that are as humorless as an old marxist who has to pay for his own trojans.
girls, hold that aspirin between the knees.
I have to disagree with the way you're quoting him. While he did use the words "aspirin between the knees", there's a huge difference between:
girls, hold that aspirin between the knees.
as a piece of advice and a more accurate representation of what he was saying:
girls used to hold that aspirin between the knees.
When my daughter was about 15 and she was complaining about one of her friends who was promiscuous I handed her a dime and told her that was the best birth control device ever invented. All you needed to do was put it between your knees and squeezed. She looked at me like I was crazy. Then it dawned on her what the msg was and she laughed. She said she wished her friend would remember that. That was about 30 years ago.
Id guess that suggestion goes back a very long way, maybe even before the time of Christ. The thin object may change but the msg is the same.
Come on! Day 47 of the Freepathon and only 44 days until the start of the next. What will you do and where will you post if it goes?

It’s such a shock to today’s leftist whores that perhaps they stop spreading their legs for every guy they think is hot. They are just as shocked to have someone tell them maybe it’s THEIR responsibility as a sexual being to pay for their own birth control.
Yup, big shocker in the 21st century for libs to be told point blank either don’t have sex or pay for your own contraceptives like a real adult would. And maybe if you don’t have your own money to pay for them, perhaps the responsible thing then is to ensure you don’t get pregnant and keep the legs closed. Use one of your kids’ government school pamphlets about how well carrots and zuchinis work.
Abstinence....100% prevents pregnancy and STDs - works every time it is utilized...and best of all, IT’S FREE.
I’ve heard this over and over from the lefty commentators and believe me they are devoid of all humor.
"What a Neanderthal! Real civilized people have free, indiscriminate sex with multiple partners, and then discard the ensuing procreation."
...And then demand that you pay for it.
Well, if these ame enlightened women who do these interviews were not offended by the sexual infidelities of Bill Clinton, JFK...
Then why are little subtle analogies about virtuous behavour beyond their comprehension...Thats what thi guy was talking about, but hey...
If anything this illustrates how utterly stupid some women (liberal) journalists are...
