Romney ‘tampon ban’ hoax inspires ridicule from conservatives

What “tampon rumor?” We learned from Twitter that known enemy of lady parts Mitt Romney will ban tampons if elected president. Some say the rumor was started by a lame political satire published months ago on the parody site Free Wood Post, but you can’t fool Ace and friends.

Tampon truthers, clinging bitterly to their Tampax! Save us, Obama!

Fact check, please:

This Republican war on women has gone too far.

Has all of this tampon nonsense cleared up anything?

  • GOP Girl

    One more dirty job for the TSA to go digging for. Glove up!

    • SineWaveII

      Don’t they already require women to remove them and hand them to the TSA agent?

  • Brett McMicken

    if tampons are banned, what will liberal men use?

    • JoH113

      DivaCup? 😀

    • Guest

      Not to worry, if Obama is re-elected he will spread the tampons around.

      • SineWaveII

        Wait until Obama unveils his new green tampon recycling program. Who says you should use them only once? Re-use your tampon, save the planet!

    • Di Sunderland

      They’ll have to get hysterectomies.

  • Josephine (D)

    Don’t like tampons? Don’t use ’em!

  • Jack Offelday

    Romney would have to pull a few strings in order to ban tampons.

    • Dolphieness

      LOLOLOL That was a good one!

    • PistolsForPandas

      I see what you did there.

  • grais

    The Founding Fathers never envisioned the super absorbancy of modern tampons when they wrote the Bill of Rights.

  • Conrad2010

    Why is this piece of crap even a subject for discussion?

    • SineWaveII

      Ask the lefties

  • vetgal1970

    It really is hard to believe some of the stuff Obama voters get worked up about. Those are the women who are liberated and smart? I’m sorry, but people that stupid should not be allowed to vote. Evah

    • Brett McMicken

      “i am (liberal) woman: hear me whine”

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    See!!!! Free tampons now! I totally agree with all the tweets above! Please see my discourse on the virtue of free tampons vs. free contraception, sex being a lifestyle choice, menstruation happens, yada yada yada.

    • Di Sunderland

      I agree 100% with yoo!

  • TugboatPhil

    In all seriousness, do tampons fall under the new Obamacare tax on “medical devices?” If I’m not mistaken, toothbrushes did. Obama wants to tax lady parts.

  • Owen007

    Somewhere, a Democrat is saying, “Enough of this tampon nonsense! We have to focus on what’s important – Big Bird, debate excuses and ignoring what happened in Libya.”

  • ember

    Big Bird, tampons, magic undies…we’ll be the laughing stock of history for our grandchildren.

    • Nergal

      Probably. You might as well chuckle along with them.

  • Jason

    Sounds like a bloody mess!

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    Obama signs Executive Order to Federally Regulate Tampons and a User Tax was inserted into the order to take affect in 28 days.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    great. now we’ll have women dressing up as tampons AND vaginas at the next convention…

    • SineWaveII

      (imagining) …so will the vagina woman be standing and the tampon woman attached by her head to the chest of the vagina woman like one of those two-person horse costumes? Will the tampon woman have a big long string attached to her butt? Inquiring minds want to know.

      • orringtonmom (D)

        inquiring minds need to stop inquiring lol

  • sleazyrider

    Im sure any concessions made will have a string attached!

  • Nergal

    I don’t even know where to go with this. I wanted to write something serious, but discovering that people BELIEVED that just gave me a seizure, or something, and now nothing comes to mind. Thanks Twitchy, I needed a good laugh.

  • Junie3

    Ban that crap that makes you buy tampons. That would end abortions, Sandra Flukes B/C binging and PMS.

  • Di Sunderland

    Oh noes! That evil Romney wants to take away my tampons!!!! Help me Obama, Fluke, someone! My lady parts are in trouble now! /sarc satire/

  • HoneyBucket

    Liberals = acting on emotion >>> (facts + rational thought)

  • DANEgerus

    Can we really trust anyone but the TSA to properly, and safely, apply this product to #LadyParts ???

  • DANEgerus

    Of course the IRS should handle removal…

  • DANEgerus

    So at the airport I removed and turned my Tampon over to the TSA agent, and he said “but you’re a guy” and I said “yeah but the Government pays for them via the recent HHS mandate so they’re FREE!” and he said… “but you’re a guy” and I said “don’t gender stereotype me man” and he said… “but you’re a guy” and I said… but I’m a liberal and he said… “Oh… sorry…”

  • aircraftmech

    Hahahaha-you liberals sure are stupid. Better not go to The Onion website or your head will explode!
    What’s scary is that you morons vote too-yikes!!
