Swag Hags: Exposed

(image via movie666)

After listening to Senator Jim "Batshit" Webb's citric response to the SOTU, as well as Kurt Andersen's populist crie de coeur and the nut-brown Ken Auletta's recent "America Firstish" Lou Dobbs profile, we are all but embracing a general opprobrium at the overpriviledged tomfoolery of the very wealthy. Populism is the new black; eat the rich! Enter: Swagbags (Exaggerated cough suggesting feigned detachment). From those intrepid Page Sixxies:

"After pounding vodka-Red Bulls for three hours, Teri Hatcher 'walked off with $10,000 worth of swag,' said a source, including $3,000 worth of Lia Sophia jewelry, Dermalogica products and AG jeans. Winona Ryder sent her assistant to the Marquee gifting suite to collect an armful of Botkier handbags. Sources said Ryder didn't want to 'show face.'"

Those swag bags may be free ... Winona, but everything has a price.
