The Claire Booth Luce Policy Institute’s 2009 calendar has provoked left-wing bloggers to their usual classy reaction:
Less than twenty-four hours after the launch of the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute’s “Pretty in Mink” calendar, an onslaught of angry leftist bloggers unleashed a torrent of visceral hatred-aimed at everything from the calendar’s photography and makeup to the women’s physical appearance. . . .
The ladies are “sexy loudmouth whores” according to a blogger. Another claims the calendar is “an attempt to make erections lean to the right.” The women, they complain, “aren’t even remotely attractive.” . . .
But what can explain such malicious prejudice among the very sector of society that chooses as its public altar the utopian notions of tolerance and acceptance?
The calendar is available here.
