Politico describes how conservatives are embracing the Snuggie.  This is a blanket with sleeves that keeps you “snugglie warm”.  Derek Hunter of Americans for Tax Reform is on a mission, Lord knows why, to photograph conservatives wearing this contraption.


Hunter purchased the Snuggie after a bit too much to drink and later brought it into work simply to prove to his fellow Tax Reformers that, yes, he had – embarrassingly – purchased a Snuggie. Soon, colleagues began taking photos of themselves in it and, eventually, a Facebook photo page – “The Snuggie Cult” – was born.

 

“From there, it blew up,” said Hunter. “Within the next hour I was inundated with messages from people who wanted to see it, try it on and have their picture taken in it. I figured it could be fun, so what the hell? Rather than give it away, which was my original plan, I thought I’d keep it a while to take some pictures of people in it. … Next thing I knew I had 100 people in it.”

 

This makes conservatives seem so, well, snugglie, doesn’t it?
