Years later,Mitt Romneyis still known for mentioning his “binders full of women,” a phrase which “Jeopardy” turned into a category at least twice and which led female protesters to fashion binder costumes out of cardboard.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich made a similar, unforgivable gaffe during a speech today when he remembered the women in the ’70s who left their kitchens to put up yard signs and go door to door campaigning for him. Salon was the outlet to play the “misogynist” card, although TIME tweeted that Kasich was “upbraided” by an audience member. Even that sounds like a strong word for what actually happened.
It will probably take a few more days to come up with a convincing “kitchen” costume.
