Of Blinders and Binders

I think Gov. Mitt Romney is getting a bum wrap over his comment about "binders of women" during this week's debate. As I noted the other day, I find it interesting that after many years as a successful businessman that he was not already acquainted with plenty of able women to staff his administration, but the focus on the phrase "binders of women" is ridiculous. Everyone watching knew what he meant and what he meant was a good thing.

If you want to see how blinders, not binders, can limit the range of one's moral universe, consider this commentary by  Jack Fowler at National Review Online regarding last night's Al Smith Dinner.
