A is for Aspirin and ASS.
It's beginning to feel a lot like the 1950's for women these days. Case in point, Foster Friess. He's the primary supporter of a pro-Santorum super political action committee.
He suggested on MSNBC that women use Bayer aspirin as a contraceptive. Wow.
“This contraceptive thing, my gosh, it’s so expensive,” he told host Andrea Mitchell.
“Back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.”
In case your not completely clear on Satorum's view on contraception:
Santorum has said that he is "not a believer in birth control" and believes it is "harmful" to both women and society.
And in October, Santorum discussed the "dangers" of contraception with an evangelical blog.
"Many in the Christian faith have said, 'Well, that's okay. Contraception's okay," he said. "It's not okay because it's a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. They're supposed to be within marriage, they are supposed to be for purposes that are, yes, conjugal, but also [inaudible], but also procreative. That's the perfect way that a sexual union should happen."
Watch and Scream.
Advise for the 1950's housewife.
Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival home is not the time. Let him talk first – remember his topics of conversation are more important that yours.
"Just as nightfall doesn’t come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances there is a twilight. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of the change in the air—however slight—lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."
