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?
