#Humour, #Internet

It didn't take very long for the Internet to pick up on Mitt Romney's "binder full of women" comment and the handy Binder Full of Women tumblr blog has all the memes for you to enjoy. It's funny, when you think about it though: we live in a day and age that one minor misspeak will be used against you over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

It wasn't "there you go again" or "you're no Jack Kennedy," but one of the more quoted lines from the latest presidential debate might well be "binders full of women" -- at least if Democrats have any say in the matter.

Minutes after Mitt Romney claimed that he brought "binders full of women" to his Cabinet selection process in Massachusetts, the phrase was lighting up Twitter and had already spawned a new website.

The history behind the Tumblr blog is equally amusing.
