    Foster Friess: In my day women used Bayer aspirin for contraception.

    Foster Friess: In my day, women "used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives" - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Foster Friess, a prominent backer of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, raised eyebrows Thursday when he offered up his own idea for a possible contraceptive method: "This contraceptive thing, my gosh, it's so... inexpensive. Back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives."

    Friess's implication is that if women hold aspirin between their legs, they won't open them.


    OMG OMG OMG OMG. Wait for it.... Andrea Mitchell, what could she have said?

But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    She could say "You're right. We're all idiots. We shouldn't be talking about contraception because it's completely irrelevant to anything. I'm going to quit my job now, and instead dedicate my life to growing turnips."

    Of course, that's just one option. She could have said many other things too.

    No babies with bayer. Or aspirin =abstinence. I just don't have any good ones. Her reaction was perfect.

    Santorum is whining like little bitch whenever he's asked about this fat clown: "The media is so unfair, he like Obama and you don't like me"... Blah, blah, blah...

    Hey, homophobe, we don't like you because you're not likable.

    Re: Foster Friess: In my day women used Bayer aspirin for contraception.

    When I was in HS, there was a very prevalent rumor that if a woman douched with coca-cola after sex, she would not conceive. I never heard the one about aspirin, but it may have been part of the mythology.

    This idiot needs a class on contraception, and Santorum needs to tell his crazy people supporters to STFU.

    You should read what he said then. Because he's implying that its impossible to get pregnant if you don't have sex, which is true.

    Makes perfect sense. Married women should just be celibate then, right?

    That's what I got out of it. That's his recommended method of birth control.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Yes, but it's just not a practical way of preventing pregnancies for most people.

    The 100% solution to no more car wrecks would be if everyone stopped drinving their cars. Again, not a practical solution to a real problem.

    If someone really can't afford a 3 dollar pack of condoms, and doesn't presently want children, then they probably shouldn't have sex. Not really rocket science.
