60. I'm a woman but I didn't "hear" it. The stench of lies pouring out of his mouth overwhelms me.

I will sit and listen respectfully to so many people whose views are different than mine and hope for common ground and diplomacy, but when someone is SO greedy, SO disrespectful of hardworking people, SO dishonest from sun up til sun down..... all I want is duct tape to shut their stinking pie hole, a copy of the transcript and someone like you to pin point WHERE in the pounds of crap that spewed out of his mouth are the bits and pieces that betray his slanted world view.

So I appreciate the complete and intelligent analysis you have done. I'd like to make a copy of it and show it to a co-worker of mine. He's a guy and he correctly gets that Mitt is a fool, but he doesn't understand HOW offensive what Mitt said was or fully why and we're at work so I can't go really deeply into it.

My co-worker made the mistake of teasing me... with the idea that because I know he is against Mitt, against discrimination of all kinds that I'd think he was only being funny. He sent me an instant message, "Oh settle down, or I'll have to put you in a binder." I got very mad, but I really like the guy and just wanted to disabuse him of the notion that it is ok to talk to me like that.

I said something to the effect that he was welcome to try but that better men than him have found themselves missing important parts of themselves trying to put me in my place. I'm a computer support tech, so I've had to be tough at times to establish that odd type of respect one gets being a woman in what lots of people think is more of a man's job.

He said, "OK Miz Bobbit" and I said, "Not like that ewwwww" and he came back with "Nobody puts Baby in a binder" which I also found offensive. I said, "No one puts ME anywhere I don't want to be." We mostly laughed it off. I was disappointed that he didn't get it, but haven't given up on him really understanding it if I could get OUT of the place of being offended and find the words to explain it.
