Because I care.

Thank you. Goodnight America, and all the ships at sea.

Addendum: thanks to the most estimable [livejournal.com profile] wendymr, who pointed this out to me before mainstream news folks did.

Actually, I love the internet even more for this: MassGAP says that Romney lied. It wasn't even his initiative.

What actually happened was that in 2002 -- prior to the election, not even knowing yet whether it would be a Republican or Democratic administration -- a bipartisan group of women in Massachusetts formed MassGAP to address the problem of few women in senior leadership positions in state government. There were more than 40 organizations involved with the Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus (also bipartisan) as the lead sponsor.

They did the research and put together the binder full of women qualified for all the different cabinet positions, agency heads, and authorities and commissions. They presented this binder to Governor Romney when he was elected.


Honourable mention to the tweet on the romneysbinder account saying BREAKING NEWS - Donald Trump demands to see Romney's long form binder full of women.

Go right ahead! It's made it to the mainstream news websites now anyway, so it's no longer 'breaking news' of any sort.

Sorry I'm so late coming back to you, but I don't (can't, but wouldn't anyway) access social media at work.

Oh, but for another grin, [livejournal.com profile] lindenharp pointed me here. Enjoy!
