Mitt Romney may have accidentally inspired the next great rap song

During the 2nd presidential debate this week, Mitt Romney (in his infinite "wisdom") inadvertently set off the next great set of memes by using a line that only a really dull salesman wearing plaid would use if he was picking up soccer moms at Bar Louie:

Quoted from the NY Daily News (via Jonathan Lemire):

Romney made the remark in talking up his record of hiring women while governor of Massachusetts — an effort to appeal to female voters who could hold the key to the presidential race.

“I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks?’ ” Romney said, “and they brought us whole binders full of women.”

I myself can't really see how this is funny, offensive, or even the end of his run for president; all "binders full of women" suggests to me is that he needs to learn more words. Consequently rappers like Shyne and Nicki Minaj who (for attention or for real) support Mitt Romney could easily use that line for their next hit song. I trust Minaj more than I trust Shyne because she has more capability in making something out of nothing.

I'm no lyricist, but I imagine she'd do it like this:

Democrats ain't shit, democrats ain't nothing,
A hundred pinko liberals can't tell me nothing,
I got binders full of women, bind, binders full of women
binders full of women, bind, binders full of women.

I wonder if Stacey Dash is available for a video version if by chance a song is ever done around this.

Anyhow, I'd like to know from hip-hop fans who would be the rapper who would best be able to utilize this now infamous line. Someone who needs a hit I believe would surely make one around this.
