Are You In One Of Mitt Romney’s Binders Full Of Women Yet?

During last night’s presidential debate, the candidates were asked what they’d do to improve the status of women and ensure equal pay. And while President Obama discussed his work on the Lilly Ledbetter act, Mitt Romney accidentally said one of the most talked about phrases of the evening. Speaking to the crowd, he said that he once had the opportunity to put a board together, but was dismayed to see only male candidates presented. So:

“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.”

For whatever reason, the phrase has taken off, and now there’s a Tumblr and a Facebook page devoted to Romney’s binders, where information about the wage gap and Romney’s policies are offered up. And before the debates were even through, someone had set up an @RomneysBinder Twitter account. It currently has more than 30,000 followers. I happen to think Romney’s binder is probably just filled with pictures of Delta Burke, but maybe that’s just me? [ABC News]
