A break from Reality TV blogging for actual reality:

Even if you missed the debates last night, there is no escaping Mitt Romney’s statement about “Binders Full of Women.”  When asked about equal pay for women, Romney responded: “And I—and I went to my staff, and I said, ‘How come all the people for these jobs are—are all men.’ They said: ‘Well, these are the people that have the qualifications.’ And I said: ‘Well, gosh, can’t we—can’t we find some—some women that are also qualified?’ And—and so we—we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. 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.”

Binders full of women has taken on a life of itself own on the internet.  This has become bigger than Janet Jackson’s Superbowl “wardrobe malfunction” aka NippleGate or Psy’s “Gangnam Style” video.  There is already a website: http://bindersfullofwomen.tumblr.com/ and Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/romneybindersfullofwomen dedicated to this phrase that has shown in more than one way how out of touch Romney is with the American voters, women in particular.  I won’t go into my own politcal beliefs on why I found this entire segment of the debate appalling, but rather thought I would point readers to these hilarious websites that make light of what is actually a very serious problem with the Romney campaign/beliefs.  I leave you with this Clinton meme:
