Yesterday, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell claimed that Mitt Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate was “not a pick for women.” If that’s true, how can Mitchell explain why there are so many women in these pictures.

And these.

And these.

And this one.

And these.

Were those women on their way to a Sandra Fluke speech and got lost? They might have been by the time Mitchell files her report later.

The inside of Andrea Mitchell’s head probably looks something like this, so she may find it surprising that plenty of women will not only support Paul Ryan on the ticket, but might be re-energized as a result.

In general, the Ryan pick has so far been a booster rocket for the Romney campaign:

The crowds at Romney rallies swelled to the thousands and grew more raucous in the wake of his vice presidential pick—and the running mates’ Midwestern roots became a major theme.

The weekend’s appearances offered the first glimpse of what Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign now looks like, after adding Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin to the ticket. Mr. Romney spent Saturday and Sunday basking in the bump from his new No. 2, as the duo drew crowds of thousands—not previously a regular occurrence for Mr. Romney—and were greeted with raucous applause.

In related news, Paul Ryan is already appearing on Shepard Fairey inspired shirt designs, albeit a little more grounded in reality.
