Andrea Mitchell had on Rick Santorum's Super PAC money man Foster Friess this morning during her MSNBC telecast. Mitchell asked him about the potential problems Santorum could have with women voters because of his stance on contraception and women in the military. Foster's response was so stunning that it froze Andrea in her tracks.

Mitchell: Do you have any concerns with some of his comments on social issues, on contraception on women in combat and whether or not it would hurt his viability in a general election campaign were he to be the nominee?

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

This contraceptive thing, my gosh it's such inexpensive, back in my days we used Bayer aspirin for contraception, the gals put it between their knees and it wasn't that costly.

Mitchell: Um, excuse me I'm trying to catch my breath from that Mr. Friess, frankly....< Friess chuckles> ...

I'm speechless too. Why was Friess chuckling? He could use a ton of therapy sessions, not the country. Women have been continually degraded in this Republican primary season and ever since the GOP took back the House. How has the national dialogue on women's reproductive rights get so degraded now that now GOP supporters bring up "aspirin-between-the-knees" as a real method of contraception?

It's a mad house.
