22 of the Best from Romney’s Binders Full of Women Meme
The day is October 16, 2012, the day of the second presidential debate between hopeful Mitt Romney and current president, Barack Obama. The air is electric and the audience so quiet you could hear a pin drop (mostly because they would be forcibly removed for interrupting, but that’s beside the point).
Blow for blow and verbal jab for verbal jab, Obama and Romney go back and forth. Until the now infamous question was asked,
“In what new ways do you intend to rectify the inequalities in the workplace, specifically regarding females making only 72 percent of what their male counterparts earn?”
It was in his answering back that Mitt Romney made the comment heard ’round the world of the Internet:
“…I brought us whole binders full of — of women.”
INSTANT MEME SUCCESS.
In less time than it takes to answer the question, Mitt Romney created the binders full of women meme. Like Clint Eastwood before him, Romney brought the sweet taste of Internet Infamy to the doorstep of the GOP, where it will stay forever.
Personal Aside on the Binders Full of Women Meme
Now, before anyone starts claiming bias, let me point out that I do not care for either candidate. It’s like South Park stated during the 2004 elections: We have to choose between a Giant Douche and a Turd Sandwich. All I care about is finding someone who will bring the country to the levels it has been and better.
I also mostly care about who causes Internet sensations, since that’s what I enjoy the most. So, it appears Romney has the upper hand in this match, but that isn’t always necessarily a good thing. Regardless, today I tip my hat to Mitt Romney and his binder full of women. For without them, I wouldn’t be able to bring you…
