Virginia isn't for Viagra

Democratic Congressman Jim Moran wants to get Viagra ads off the air, when kids might be watching.
He's proposed a bill to keep erectile dysfunction commercials from airing between 6am and 10pm.
Pfizer, the company that makes Viagra, says they run the ads when they think people who might need it, are watching.
That, it seems, is during every sporting event I watch.

    I agree with the senator, personally I’m fed up with those ridiculous commercials. The airwaves were never sacred to some. How far will a company go for a buck. There may come a day when sensual viagra commercials will hit the air, if we don't address it NOW!

    The senator is spot on. Anyone having trouble in the erectile dysfunction department that isn't smart enough to work it out without seeing nonstop ads on ESPN has no business reproducing and if they're beyond their reproductive years they go to the doctor often enough to stay up on available solutions..
