This is the joke: “You know, back in my days, they’d use Bayer aspirin for contraceptives, The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.”
It may not have been funny but it sure wasn't something to get outraged over. Unless you've got an agenda. And progressives always do.
The Other McCain says We Forgive You, Foster Friess and points out that the joke that libs have dubbed "controversial" was probably first used by Phyllis Diller. This took place way back when, when women, specifically progressive women, had a sense of humor or could at least not get overly sensitive after hearing a bad joke.
Foster Friess ended up apologizing to the uptight, politically correct, feminuts and the rest of the dummicrats.
Hack Wilson has a fantastic post In Defense of Santorum. Fuzzy Slippers has a marvelous post debunking the hystrionics and kookball claims from the Left that Santorum will engage in 'social engineering", On "Social Engineering" : Stop With The Crazy About Rick Santorum, Please.
