OK, everyone knows that this

OK, everyone knows that this is no fashion site. However, even the out-of-touch Power Line crew knows that fashion can’t make a political statement, and if it tries, it will be really stupid. Here, courtesy of Best of the Web, is a Lebanese model purporting to “demonstrate solidarity with the Palestinian uprising against Israel” by wearing a dress that features tanks and bloodstains. This, on the other hand–from Supermodels Are Lonelier Than You Think, scroll down about half way–is a thoughtful critique of the Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan (not for children, I’m afraid). This costume may be less politically offensive, but might be even dumber in that the models couldn’t see the runway and fell off.
