In a Binder

I was watching the Yankees lose, so I missed the "binders full of women" quote, but I am truly impressed by how quickly it's gone around-the-world viral. Here's a nice set of memes, for example. I have a source who claims that Romney didn't even ask for those binders; they were thrust upon him by organizations who thought he wouldn't bother to look at women for his administration without prodding.

There does seem to be a certain set of white Republican men who continue to view women as something Other, and they've all crawled out of the woodwork for this election cycle. Is it really such a huge step from that POV to Taliban mentality?

LATER: Thanks to Carrie for more and better memes!
