Yes, contrary to popular belief, I do actually have a sense of humor. It’s just that it seems to be about a half-bubble off level.
The Weekly Standard points out this silly Obama Campaign Ploy:
The Obama campaign has created a series of electronic greeting card aimed at women voters.
Perhaps the oddest card in the series, though, is this one:
“Dear Mom,” the card reads. “Mitt Romney says he would repeal the Affordable Care Act. So here’s a quick question: Can I borrow $18,000 to help pay for my birth control? Thanks!”
They further point out that, according to a Washington DC Target Pharmacy:
Birth control pills can be purchased for as low as $9 per month at a pharmacy near Georgetown’s campus.
Nine dollars is less than the price of two beers at a Georgetown bar.
At which point it occurred to me: If they eschew the two beers at a Georgetown bar, they may not need the birth control pills in the first place.
Don’t know why that struck me as so funny, but you can’t say I didn’t warn you.
