Mark Halperin’s “Binders Of Women” Tweet this morning earns him my Hack Of The Day award:
Romney seriously botched a response to a debate question and Halperin knows it. Oh joy, ladies! Romney’s “solution” to the gender pay gap is letting women go home at 5 o’clock to cook dinner! Yay! Problem solved!
Everyone watching knew Romney had messed up. No wonder the meme went viral in seconds. The debate had barely moved on to the next question before the Tumblr site was launched. It’s been a trending topic on Twitter since last night. This was not engineered by Democratic Party operatives, hell they’re not that good. This thing exploded organically across all of the social networks and rightfully so, because Romney screwed up. Poor Mark Halperin is trying to undo some of the damage by pretending it’s not authentic, which is pathetic.
But what I find really hilarious is Halperin’s use of the term “MSM,” as if somehow a Time magazine editor-at-large and MSNBC senior political analyst isn’t part of the mainstream media.
