Aspirin joke makes left go mad and gives Santorum a headache


There is a din in the main stream media today because a main backer of US Presidential candidate Rick Santorum, made a joke about birth control practices in America.

The left leaning press smelled blood when they heard the "not politically correct"remark made by a man named Foster Friess. Like hungry sharks drawn to a bleeding hemophiliac in the ocean, they pressed in for the attack on Mr. Friess.

The offending statement that brought the level of cacophony from the liberal press to ear bleed level? Friess said "The form of birth control used when he was younger, was called an aspirin and women kept them between their knees to avoid pregnancy".

Taken in context, Mr. Friess is from previous generation, where there were few options, but lets get serious folks, what is wrong with abstaining from sex as a form of birth control? Are those that choose to be celibate to be condemned because they chose not to have sex? Where is the liberal tolerance?

But of course this fits in well in the left leaning media's coordinated character assassination of Republican candidates. Recent revelations by the news organization Daily Caller, has exposed the cozy connection between Media Matters & Center for American Progress with the White House. What gets pushed in these publications seems to get parroted by many members of the main stream media.

Even famed far left champion of liberal causes Alan Dershowitz spoke out against this unholy alliance when he recently said in a radio interview on Jay Severins Boston talk radio 1200 :

“These two organizations have been found to be anti-Semitic by many of the objective monitoring groups,” he said. “And now they are closely associated with the Democratic Party and I have said very clearly there is no room in this tent for me on the one hand, and for Media Matters and for this other group on the other hand. We can’t be in the same tent. I will not be in a tent with fascists"

Those are powerful accusations from a man of such standing in the very liberal wing of the Democrat Party. His warnings should be heeded.

This drummed up din, is willfully and purposely being used to detract from the failures of the Obama administration and designed to drive a wedge between Americans, a form of divide and conquer.

Mr. Friess and his wife Lynn, through their Friess Family Foundation, are major benefactors to many charities around America and the world. They are also known for their great works in helping disaster victims in New Orleans, Haiti, Indonesia and Malawi. They are the epitome of true America heroes that give America a good name around the world.

Mr. Friess made an apology saying the "joke bombed," and "many didn't recognize it as a joke but thought it was my prescription for today's birth control practices."
"In fact, the only positive comments I got were from folks who remembered it from 50 years back. Birth control pills weren't yet available, so everyone laughed at the silliness on how an aspirin could become a birth control pill. To all those who took my joke as modern day approach I deeply apologize and seek your forgiveness."
Can we now get back to the business of choosing the next President?
