But he shouldn't have apologized over the contraception question. He should have doubled down and said, "She's blowing 1000 a year on contraception in her own words. She wants the government to pay for it. I'd like to know just how many condoms she's running through each year on top of her pill - and since she's demanding the government get involved to pay for it, it's not so clear that her sex life is sacred and private."
His misstep was going for the name-calling. But damn, what an opportunity missed. She's spending 1000/annual on contraception? Ask. Her. Why.
