A Binder full of Women?

“A murder of crows. A clowder of cats. A richness of martens. A skulk of foxes. A business of ferrets. A binder of women.” ~ Casey Johnston

In case you’ve been living under a rock for a week, the Internet has taken a comment by Mitt Romney and created the newest political meme.

“Despite all the fireworks over taxes, oil and Libya, the most buzz-worthy social media moment of Tuesday night’s presidential debate was Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s comment about “binders full of women.”

The inadvertently funny comment came in response to a question about pay equity for women from a member of the audience of the debate between Romney and President Obama at Hofstra University.

Romney was explaining that as the governor of Massachusetts searching for qualified women to fill cabinet posts, women’s groups brought him “binders full of women” who were good candidates.

“And I said, ‘Well, gosh, can’t we — can’t we find some — some women that are also qualified?” Romney said. “I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks,’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”

And at Amazon, well check out this product review:


Oh good, I’m glad the debates are turning out to be so useful. This one cracked me up too:

This binder is only 72% as good as a binder full of men. It should only cost 72% as much! Doesn’t this binder know it’s place? It totally shouldn’t get guaranteed contraceptive care and a right to privacy. What the heck is this little binder thinking?
