“Funny Or Die” Ladies Mock Anti-Choice Rick Santorum’s Aborted Campaign

The funny ladies of “Funny or Die” — namely female superstars Ashley Judd (yes, this video is yet another reason to love Ashley Judd), Michelle Trachtenberg, Katy Mixon and Eliza Coupe — have created a comedic video on the topic of Rick Santorum’s prematurely aborted presidential campaign. It’s delightful!

  1. this is by far the best thing i’ve seen all day. thank you, autostraddle, for always finding the best shit on the internet so i don’t have to waste all my free time looking for it and can instead focus on more important things like re-reading the hunger games.

  2. I LOVE Eliza Coupe. love love love.

    Also, tell me we got some coverage on the other recent Funny or Die video about Kirk Cameron-related issues. CCOKC. Sooo funny and sooo relevant. :)

  3. If this was any funnier it would have been written by a man! Wait… that didn’t come out right! What I meant to say was… if this was any funnier it would have been written by a woman from Wisconsin so that she would get paid a lot less. Wait… that wasn’t it, either. [email protected] it! Never-mind. At any rate, this is absolutely hilarious. I am a fan. More, please.
