Romney's Binders full of women remark sparks internet meme

Like his "Big Bird" remark at the first debate in Denver, a simple 4 letter word phrase from Mitt Romney became an overnight internet sensation. Within minutes, social media sites sprung up parodying Romney's "binders full of women" comment.

Veronica De Souza created a tumblr account "Binders Full of Women" that got more than 3,000 followers in less than a half hour and has received 5,000 original submissions since Tuesday night.

    I'm going to be a disappointed fan of yours unless you read a few of the Amazon over 1,000 reviews
    of a simple Avery Binder on your weekend shows. They concern Romney's BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN remark during the second presidential debate.
    Don't forget to look at the "book" images! My favorite is the one that has Bill Clinton saying...TO HECK WITH THE DEBATE...I want to see more of those binders.

    Ms. Soledad O'brien: Please correct your tweet claiming @BindersofWomen is the account of Veronica De Souza. I created the account with original jokes and original cartoons so please stop giving her credit for my work. And I am much more interesting than she is so please inquire about my press availability ;( love the show, keep up the good work.

    just my personal thoughts-did anyone else hear the comment Romney – about,children should have two parents who are married,in order to have a stable home, also his comment about how the world is excepting children born out of wed lock.
    Is this election about changing the moral fiber of all americans as well as running the country.
    I never have had the challenges women who have children out to wed lock, but I resent the fact he thinks that way, what about the women who find themselfe in that situation and the man is a soldier and get killed,and they were engaged.
    Romney is very narrow minded, as far as Women are concerned- which goes back to how he was raised,Women must bow to the male, and except that as their fate,or they will not go to the great beyond. Read the Morman Wedding Vows.
    I am no anti anything I believe in our country and constitution freedom of choice and equality of all,not matter religion creed or color or life style.
