Santorum Supporter Stuns Andrea Mitchell With Memories Of How ‘The Gals’ Used Bayer Aspirin As Contraception

Foster Freiss, the very wealthy business man backing Rick Santorum‘s campaign efforts, appeared on Andrea Mitchell Reports Thursday afternoon, where host Andrea Mitchell asked him whether he thought Santorum’s recent comments concerning social issues — such as those regarding, say, contraception and women in combat — would end up hurting his efforts at seeking the nomination.

Freiss had a chuckle at the very idea:

Well, I get such a chuckle when these things come up. Here we have millions of our fellow Americans unemployed, we have jihadists camps being set up in Latin America which Rick has been warning about, and people seem to be so preoccupied with sex that I think it says something about our culture. We maybe need a massive therapy session so we can concentrate on what the real issues are.

He also shared an anecdote. “In my day,” he told Mitchell, “they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptions. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.”

The pill? Hundreds of dollars per year.

Aspirin? Far less costly.

…Andrea Mitchell’s reaction to Foster Freiss’ comment? Priceless.
