    If anyone knows anything about having “binders full of women,” it’s the backwards-hat-wearing, iron-pumping heartthrob that is Paul Ryan. The congressman defended Romney’s viral debate comment, saying that all Mitt meant was that, as governor, he just wanted to hire “qualified women” for his administration. Ryan also said—while probably hoping that everyone in America would just stop giggling for two seconds—that Romney’s point was clear. He also thinks Romney “won the debate.”
