Fail: Gop Tries to Rebrand, Dresses Up Women in Fur for Offensive 'Pretty in Mink' Calender

"Republican women decked out in mink coats. Not exactly a 21st century image."
From Taylor Marsh:

Republican women decked out in mink coats. Not exactly a 21st century image. But it sure says it all about the GOP. Their problem in a nutshell, or maybe should I say in a calendar.

Announcing the conservative women "Pretty in Mink" calendar. The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute hammers home that Republicans are a 20th century party, complete with smart, even beautiful women, but whose ideas simply don't match the times.

Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin preening in fur coats. Now that's classic conservatism.

Attempting to save a dying industry through featuring a dying political brand, both in need of rescue.

But at least the girls look great.

h/t to reader Bill who adds, "they'd better watch their backs or Sarah Palin might accidentally shoot them."
