Tchotchke Watch: The 'Pin-Ups for Ron Paul' Calendar

For the voting lover of freedom and hot women, Ron Paul supporter Juliet Annerino has created (and posed in) the above-pictured 2012 Pin-Ups for Ron Paul calendar.

It's the sequel to Annerino's "Hotties 4 Ron Paul" calendar, which she produced in 2008. A California resident, Annerino says she travels the world as a jazz singer and composer, and gives fitness classes.

The models were sort of hard to find, she told The Atlantic.

"They are all very committed Ron Paul activists, and I specifically required this calendar to be made up of only Ron Paul supporters. Which is not easy, not because Ron Paul doesn't have many supporters, but because some of his supporters are kind of shy," Annerino said. "A lot of Ron Paul's followers not only are libertarian, but also are intellectuals ... Two of our girls are librarians."

Annerino said she found the models through Facebook and YouTube.

The top image, of the calendar's cover, features a Photoshopped Paul, not the congressman himself. So what do Paul and his campaign think of all this?

"He has a calendar from 2008. Someone from his office bought five calendars from 2008, so obviously they liked them and wanted to see them," Annerino said. "This year, as far as I know, his team knows about the calendar, but they do not have one. I anticipate that they will probably buy one or I will probably give them one, if I meet him again."
