The Pin-up as Politics

It's Friday. I'm tired. So I'm going to put up a little eye candy. I stumbled across this over on boing boing: an old-style pin-up calendar that lampoons George Bush's many corporate masters with scantily clad women. Hurray!

From the creators:

"I'm a burlesque performer in NYC and me and a bunch of the girls and NYC photographer Burke Heffner created the calendar 'The Lovely Mistresses of George W. Bush.' It's a beautiful, vintage styled pinup calendar. Each girl represents a special interest group or corporation that has profited from Bush being in power. The calendar is topical, environmentally friendly, and 25% of the profits are going to watchdog organizations that monitor corporate influence over our government."

Sounds good to me. And the fact that she's smoking hot doesn't hurt either.
