Earlier we told you that war hero John McCain gets a little squeamish when it comes to sex talk, and now we have awesome video proof, thanks to a new ad from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Have you ever wanted to see a man climb out of his skin with nervousness?
The best part is, this uncomfortable situation was set up by one of McCain's own advisors. Last week, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who has been on the stump as McCain's favorite ladypuppet, went off-message with a remark about women's health care concerns…
"Let me give you a real, live example, which I've been hearing a lot about from women. There are many health insurance plans that will cover Viagra but won't cover birth control medication. Those women would like a choice," she said.
Naturally, some reporter with massive ovaries later asked McCain — who has repeatedly voted against legislation that would make insurance companies cover birth control — the question you just saw him dodge because he doesn't "know enough about it to give you an informed answer."
Now this is just a guess, but I bet McCain knows enough about Viagra. Maybe what he's really trying to say is that he's in the dark about those magical pills and rings and things ladies use to keep their uteri fetus-free. Maybe he's afraid that if those were insured, the health care industry would also have to cover flying brooms.
Sounds to me like someone needs to sit Johnny down for a very special talk. Who's game? Anyone?
