Friess suggests 'aspirin between the knees' for birth control3:32 pm - 02/16/2012
(CNN) – While commenting Thursday on the recent contraception coverage controversy, Foster Friess, a major donor backing Rick Santorum, reflected on a more traditional, "inexpensive" form of birth control.
"Back in my days, we used Bayer aspirin for contraception.The gals put it between their knees, and it wasn't that costly," the multi-millionaire mutual fund manager said on MSNBC.
Get it, ladies? Just keep your knees locked at all times. Hahaha. It works for "contraceptions," and even contraception.
Yeah. Mitchell wasn't amused, either.
"Excuse me. I'm just trying to catch my breath from that, Mr. Friess, frankly," she said after a pause, before changing the subject.
Friess' comments aren't likely to help Santorum overcome the frequent impression that he holds antiquated views about a great many things
Friess has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a pro-Santorum super PAC, the Red, White, and Blue Fund.
