Planned Parenthood Takes On McCain’s “Viagra Moment”


Planned Parenthood’s taking a shot at John McCain.

The non-profit today released a commercial highlighting an interview last week when McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee stumbled on a reporter’s question regarding insurance and contraceptives, always a hot button political issue. Asked the reporter: “Health insurance companies cover viagra, but not birth control. Do you have an opinion on that?” McCain did not, but said he’d think of one later.

Planned Parenthood’s targeting the ad toward women, obviously, but all we can think about is how this is being referred to as John McCain’s “viagra moment.”

When did this election season become so testicular?!

      I thought they were rather soft on him. They could have done oh-so-much more.

      In all honesty, though, I’d rather hear him say “I don’t know enough about it” than bullshit it.

      And of course he’s getting hit by an obscure fact out of left field. I don’t see what the president has to do with birth control and Viagra.

      If I were a candidate and had to see it from a presidential point of view, I can’t say I would have said anything differently than he did. That said, I’m glad he’s likely not going to be the president … oi.
