The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute will release its fifth annual calendar this week, celebrating 2010's "Great American Conservative Women." Unlike last year's "Pretty in Mink" calendar, this one is decidedly more recession-friendly, depicting all 12 women in white shirts and soft lighting.
As for the name of the 2010 calendar, I can only conclude it references the following:
"Great" as in hyperbole, as when calendar girl Michelle Malkin claimed an anti-Obama protest that took place in DC this month was attended by two million people, instead of the 70,000 estimated by the fire department.
"American" as in the opposite of "un-American," an accusation Miss November Michelle Bachmann leveled at Barack Obama--and certain members of Congress--during his campaign.
And "Conservative" as in gay-hating and other civil rights-denying values, a mission newest calendar addition, Carrie Prejean, Miss October, claims God chose her to carry out.
In an attempt to counter the great Greatness, the American American-ness, and the Conservative Hatey-ness of this calendar, HuffPost is putting together a "Great American Liberal Women" Calendar of its own.
The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute's official Facebook Fan Page seems dubious about this counterpunch, however, judging by the wall post they put up on Monday at 1:04 pm:
Yes, it does in fact read: "The Huffington Post is trying to make a "Great American LIBERAL Women" calendar. This might be difficult considering their women look like men *cough*rachelmaddow*cough*."
Stay classy, you great women, you.
