Presidential candidate Mitt Romney had a tough day today, as the Internet was ablaze with jokes about one small statement he made at Tuesday’s debate claiming that he had requested “binders of women” qualified to serve for appointments by his administration. Not only was the “binders of women” made into comedy on the Internet, but it also turns out that former governor actually misrepresented his own role seeking more appointments for women during his one term as governor. One woman in government actually brought resumes to Romney, hoping that he would appoint more women, not the other way around. And the number of women appointees to positions actually fell from the previous governor, Jane Swift, who declined to run for a full term after being elevated to the office from the Lt. Governor role.
But, regardless of any real truth here, there’s jokes aplenty today, where just one small statement out of the entire 90 minute debate has grown it’s own legs and has become comedy material all over the Internet today.
