Previously: President Obama (D): Binders? (October 17, 2012)

Mitt Romney’s (r) “binders of women” debate comment has prompted some interesting reviews. At Amazon:

A presidential candidate’s choice is the choice for me, October 17, 2012

As a woman, I’m not adept at making decisions that concern me. So when I need the right choice, I turn to the presidential candidate that KNOWS. One with prideful experience in this department. I don’t want to be filed away in an inferior & confusing electronic doohickey that I couldn’t possibly understand. Or heaven forbid, have a man ask for & listen to my ideas! I’d much rather rely on this top of the line, 1980s style, Avery Durable binder. It’s the choice America can trust. My education, my ideas, my opinions, my choices, please PLEASE keep them safely stored away here and far away from the men that might fear them (I mean, want to use them to hire me somedaynever). I’d write more about this most useful product, but it’s time I hurry home to make dinner.

Not as useful as the Trap Her, Keep Her, October 17, 2012

Maybe it’s just my women, but they don’t seem to want to fit into the space I’ve designated for them in this binder. They keep sticking out over the edges, even getting away in some cases. I thought using clear, glass-ceiling page protectors would help, but it doesn’t seem to slow them down anymore.

I’m going to have to resort to more severe three-hole punching, to keep my women in line. And maybe switch to the Trap Her, Keep Her.

Wow, I feel secure!, October 17, 2012

As a wife and mother, I LOVE this binder. It keeps me in my place, allows me to get dinner ready on time, AND costs 72% of more masculine version. Some people might think it’s sexist, but sheesh, I’m not binding my feet, just my brain. Extra bonus, if you sit on it just right, it can act as an effective method of birth control! Full disclosure: I submitted this under my husband’s account, with his full permission. He is the head of our household, and the owner of the binder.

This Binder Is Garbage.. All LIES!!!, October 17, 2012

I tend to take what a presidential candidate has to say seriously, so when Mitt Romney said he had a binder full of women, I was in awe. Ever since my employer changed my hours so that I could come into work 5am and get home in time to get the kids off the bus, do homework, and fix dinner, I haven’t seen much of my husband. His hours are those crazy normal working hours and I have been so lost without him being around to make decisions for me. A binder full of women sounded like the perfect solution to my dilemma, I could just flip through the pages and find someone qualified enough to help cook dinner and do the laundry, maybe even clean a few toilets.

When UPS showed up at the door with that amazing brown box with the black happy smile on the side, my heart skipped a beat. The wait was over, I would finally have a binder full of qualified women to meet my every need!!! I tore open that box, grabbed the binder and… are you joshing me? There are no women?! the binder was empty!

I laid there on the floor for hours, sobbing, crying my eyes out, not knowing where to go, who to turn to. I had no one qualified enough to tell me what to do next. I tried to get up and make my way to the front door but one of my shoes were untied and I just couldn’t figure out to fix that. I kept tripping over and over and over again, I didn’t think I was going to make it. Just when I had given up all hope, my husband came home from his shift of normal working hours and rescued me. He tied that shoe…. he tied that shoe good and I was able to walk again without falling on my face, hallelujah! He even forgave me for being out of bed past my bedtime!

But despite how fortunate I was to have my man come home just in time to figure things out for me, I can’t forget about the fact that I wouldn’t have gone through all this if I didn’t rely on the not so truthful words of Mitt Romney. Actually, I can bet $10,000 on it.

I’m so glad you made sure to get your husband’s permission before posting a comment on the internet. It gives me hope that America just might someday follow the utopian blueprint as laid out in the book “The Handmaid’s Tale.”šŸ™‚

Thank you for the birth control suggestion. This will save me $40 a month! I knew there was a better way. Hallelujah!
