Limerick Ode To Lady-Filled Binders

The oddest line of last night’s presidential debate has to be Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women.”

Romney used that phrase when responding to a question about gender inequality in the workplace: He claimed that he’d proactively solicited such binders in order to staff his cabinet with women.

“…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.”

Even if Mitt’s claim were true, which apparently it isn’t, this begs the question: Was Romney the Massachusetts Governor … or running an escort service?

Limerick Ode To Lady-Filled Binders
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Romney goes through his life wearing blinders
And surrounded by yes-men and minders.
I suppose this explains
Why Romney’s campaign’s
So proud of his women-filled binders.

    I’m a kid from the fifties, you see.
    Who matured around Seventy-three.
    The women I know
    Who had binders, would throw
    Them in fires. ‘Twas fine fare for me. :)

    Great limerick. You must come from a binder all its own :)

  3. John Sardo says:

    Mitt had a binder he frequently used
    He recently got it completely confused
    With another binder
    A real woman finder
    Ah, those were the days he sadly mused.

    On Mitt… it was hard to get started.
    Then, Gracie, our toy poodle, farted.
    But this distraction
    Prompted this action.
    Joy….. when the challenger’s departed.
