I think Jean forgot the <sarcasm> tags.

Meanwhile, CBS News reports that a staffer of Romney's while he was Governor, says he never asked for qualified female candidates, like he said he did in the debate. The staff assembled and submitted the "binders" of resumes to Romney on it's own initiative.


I'm hoping foolyap knew that and was being funny back.

I hope so anyway.

The staff didn't really do it.....I've seen this reported in several different places.

"Those “binders full of women” actually came from a coalition called Massachusetts Government Appointments Project, or MassGAP, that had formed in August 2002 to address the shortage of women in high-ranking government positions. They had started assembling groups of applicants, taking several months to reach out to women’s organizations around the state and preparing to present potential hires to whichever candidate won the election.

“We contacted both candidates before the final election,” said Liz Levin, who was chairman of MassGAP until 2010. “This was an effort that we put our hearts in. We wanted to make sure that people knew how many good, qualified, terrific ladies there were.”
