Patriot Girls Wear Their Love of Country On Their, Well... (OF COURSE there are pictures!:-))
Fox News ^ | March 20, 2009 | Hollie McKay

Hundreds of Bikini Models Look to Restore America’s "Fading Patriotism"

Six years after the start of combat operations in Iraq, one volunteer organization is still going strong, and looking to expand.

The Patriot Girls currently operate in 38 states, and hope to spread their unique brand of stars and stripes boosterism to all 50 states by the end of the year, as they train the spotlight on the sacrifices the troops and their families are making.

And how do they attract the spotlight? With their stars-and-stripes bikinis, of course.

 

OSCAR RABEIRO
"You need to look good in a bikini," says Patriot Girls founder Amy Vitale

According to The Patriot Girls spokesmodel, pro-wrestling diva Amy Vitale, the "American Flag bikini is the standard attire" and the some 200 girls do everything from posing for calendars to creating military-themed merchandise (like men’s and women’s swimwear, posters, and collectible dolls) to waitressing and washing cars in their red-white-and-blue swimsuits.

By promoting events like "Game Day at the Playboy Mansion" for the Super Bowl, a model contest in the Dominican Republic for Spring Break, and an "Official Ring Girls for the WPAL National Golden Glove Championship" in Pennsylvania, the teams of young hotties raise money for soldiers and their families, with funds going to foundations such as Wounded Warrior Project and Operation Troop Appreciation.

My favorite Franklin line from the John Adams mini series occurs when he comes across some young French beauties:

You forgot my home state (Wisconsin). She’s waaaay above the norm for Wisconsin women.

I thought the sexiest one was South Carolina. She seems a little more mature and spicy than the rest.

It’s in the eye of the beholder.

As I said on the other thread...

As I recall, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth over Olympic athletes draping the flag over themselves and using it as a prop.

Nothing like intellectual consistency, and this is nothing like it.

BTW: All MISSOURI’s have big “guns”.

I'm afraid that staring at those pictures has clouded your math abilities or your memory (though I can understand why you would want to forget that several states flipped from red to blue in the 2008 election). There are five Blue Staters among the bikini babes.

It's easy to see how they would  :-)  In addition to their Patriotic sentiments and their jaw-dropping physical attributes, they are both giving lovely smiles, something which most of the other girls featured in the Fox News article don't seem to want to do in their photos.  They are delivering Missouri Friendliness, which rounds out the package quite nicely  :-)

Thank you so much for posting....I wasn't aware that she had received that award, which she of course richly deserves.

"America's Favorite Bombshell" ....no such thing as too many Raquel Welch photos, in my view  :-)
