Picture of a Bible
Thou shalt place an aspirin between thine knees for contraception, sayeth the Lord.
Even though the entire Republican Party got its ass lady-kicked in the 2012 election because lady voters don't usually flock to the party that tells them how stupid they are, some Republicans are still utterly shellshocked by, you know, how stupid lady voters are.

Take, for example, billionaire conservative and Rick "Kiss the dead fetus, kids!" Santorum fanboy Foster Friess, who kindly explained to us dumb broads that we don't need actual birth control, because an aspirin between the knees will do the trick just fine.

Apparently, he has yet to recover from his shock:

“I am absolutely stunned how the Democrats were able to somehow say that the Republicans had a war on women. … What was the war on women? They tried convince that somehow Santorum was going to do this, that Republicans were against contraception,” he said. “Hugh Hefner said, this guy Friess wants to reverse the sexual revolution. Well, I have four kids. They’re two years apart. And contraception’s been very, very good to me.” [...]

“And so how the Democrats got away with this, I think, is another indication of a flaw of the Republicans. No one confronted that. No one confronted that and said this is a bald-faced demagoguery. But a lot of the women out there, they, you know, they were, I guess — what’s the proper word I want to use — seduced — that this a war on women.” [...]

“That message,” said Friess, “took advantage of all the low-information women voters out there who just follow Joy Behar, and had no idea that Rick Santorum — and Mother Theresa — believe that contraception goes against the Bible’s teaching.”

Hard to believe women didn't vote for Republicans, isn't it?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
