There is a famous sign from the French Quarter that immediately comes to mind when viewing the ad for the Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute's new "Conservative Babe" calendar:

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. We’ve saved Clare Boothe Luce herself for the last month of the year; we think you’ll agree that the legacy of this conservative icon makes her an appropriate ending for our calendar. And every single one of the other beautiful women featured in Pretty in Mink is one hundred percent a “Luce Lady.”

I just threw up in my mouth a little. Wanna get a glimpse of those glamour girls?

Notice anyone missing? Rich Lowry is going to be so disappointed.

The calendar was sponsored in part by Miller's Furs, who supplied furs for most of the cover girls. That is except for Miss December, the eponymous Clare Booth Luce and Miss September Ann Coulter, who happily supplied her own mink coat. There's a joke there, but I'm not taking it.

Can you help us out?
