Do Contraceptives Help Stop STDs? HMMM

Think Progress » McCain is stumped.
Q: “So no contraception, no counseling on contraception. Just abstinence. Do you think contraceptives help stop the spread of HIV?”

Mr. McCain (US Presidential Candidate): (Long pause) “You’ve stumped me.”

Yes that is a toughy. Do condoms stop the spread of STD's? I've got no idea personally, just don't have sex, listen to the Lord! I'm the White House Press Secretary and I'm a fucking retard.

Here's the rest:

Q: “I mean, I think you’d probably agree it probably does help stop it?”

Mr. McCain: (Laughs) “Are we on the Straight Talk express? I’m not informed enough on it. Let me find out. You know, I’m sure I’ve taken a position on it on the past. I have to find out what my position was. Brian, would you find out what my position is on contraception – I’m sure I’m opposed to government spending on it, I’m sure I support the president’s policies on it.”

Q: “But you would agree that condoms do stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Would you say: ‘No, we’re not going to distribute them,’ knowing that?”

Mr. McCain: (Twelve-second pause) “Get me Coburn’s thing, ask Weaver to get me Coburn’s paper that he just gave me in the last couple of days. I’ve never gotten into these issues before.”

"(Laughs) Are we on the Straight Talk express?"

This translates as "haha, are you saying you want me to tell you the truth? don't be silly, this is America!"

Absolutely shocking tbh.
