Republicans still insist on bringing up trivial, peripheral distractions like Benghazi, Obamacare, multitrillion dollar debt, unsustainable entitlements, permanent long-term unemployment, and the looming Jan. 1 fiscal cliff.
So the other morning a reader emails me a picture of a handful of women demonstrating outside the headquarters of the Ohio Republican Party in what we expert analysts round about this point in the quadrennial election cycle like to call the critical battleground of the Buckeye State. The women each wore two giant pieces of cardboard, front and back. Ah, I thought, a timely protest. These activists understand that, with Obamas flatline economy drifting inexorably to a $20 trillion federal debt, well soon be living in cardboard shacks in shanty towns in the parking lot of the bankrupt Solyndra factory. Or its what theyll be using for the X-ray plates at your local hospital once the Obamacare rationing kicks in. Or maybe its the perfect visual metaphor for the flimsiness of U.S. government security at its Middle Eastern embassies before the Death to the Great Satan! crowd punched through the compound like so much soggy cardboard. But no. The women were chanting Equal rights, not binders, and they were protesting the following remarks by Mitt Romney at the presidential debate:...

Obama had a book instead.... Of Muslims.
“Binders full of women? Where?”
Thanks for the link!

Thanks for posting. That was the funniest Steyn column I think I’ve ever read.
OMG! I’m married to a mean male Dem. When I read this I laughed so hard the tears ran down my cheeks and almost down my legs! How I love Mark Steyn! He so gets us!!! This just made my night. I’ll sleep well now. Thanks for posting.
Mark Steyn ping.
Freepmail me, if you want on or off the Mark Steyn ping list.
Thanks for the ping neverdem.
Ringed binders use to be an efficient way of organizing hard copy data files. It was a way to refine a data search to the most relevant sample set and was a lot more portable than a file cabinet.
Steyn, you magnificent bastard!
Middle East burning? Twenty-two embassies under siege? "Bump in the road."
Four dead Americans, including the first US Ambassador in 33 years? "Not optimal."
The "vision thing" apparently involves looking through the binoculars backwards for 0bama and company.
I’m missing this whole binder thing. Does it have something to do with . . . no, it couldn’t be about foot binding. I’m just not going to trouble my little head about it any further.
LOL! I think Mark's getting a little crazed here in the last days ...
Couldn't excerpt 2 more sentences, huh?
