Here’s something I recently ran across from Kathryn Jean Lopez at NRO that somehow slipped by me late last week.

Are you wondering what you can do to support the re-election campaigns of House Democrats? Me neither, but designer Diane von Furstenberg is, and has found a way to help.

From SF Weekly:

Renowned fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, apparently not content with leaving the wrap dress as her lasting contribution to the progress of humankind, has entered the political arena this season with a bold new act of haute couture: a tote bag inspired by, and intended to raise money for, House Speaker and San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

As Furstenberg explains in a mass e-mail sent out today, proceeds from sales of her “limited edition tote bag” will go to “support Speaker Pelosi and courageous House Democrats who are under increased attack by those who wish to take our country back to the policies of former President George W. Bush.”

Here’s the banner ad for the tote:

At only $65, it makes the perfect gift for somebody who’s going to immediately vomit when they see the present you got them.

As is the case with anything bearing the name of Nancy Pelosi, you’ll have to buy it first in order to find out what’s in it.
