Mink-clad Coulter, Malkin featured in conservative calendar
Just in time for the holidays, er, Christmas shopping season. The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute is hawking its annual “Pretty in Mink” calendar featuring glammed-up women scions of the conservative movement, like Ann “failed Bob Beauprez fundraiser” Coulter and recent Colorado Springs emigré Michelle Malkin.
From the institute’s Web site:
Following in the tradition of past calendars from the Luce Policy Institute, Pretty in Mink celebrates smart, conservative women role models … with flair.
We took some of your favorite leaders of today’s conservative movement on a journey back in time, and made them up into glamorous movie stars of classic Hollywood. Back when the big screen was a little more glamorous, women were a little more feminine, the men a little more charming — and the world a little less politically correct.
Featured in the calendar is a Who’s Who of lady ideologues from the right who — while they may not want to admit it — enjoy rights and opportunities not shared by their sisters from when the “world was a little less politically correct.” But why let some pesky facts get in the way of these dames shilling a little conservative (albeit pretty tame) fantasy for the cause, eh, bub?
