Values Voter Summit: 11 Best Giveaways

Sep 16, 2012 6:46am

Despite a speaking lineup that included GOP vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan, perhaps the most interesting thing about the annual Values Voter Summit, happening this weekend in Washington, D.C., is the panoply of socially conservative interest groups that line the small auxiliary conference hall at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Northwest Washington, D.C.

They come to promote niche agendas – no abortion, no gay marriage, religious education, family values, or to sell books – and they bring with them all manner of flair, handed out to interested parties. Aside from the run-of-the-mill click-pens and buttons, below are the 11 most distinct and (mostly) free-for-the-taking things to be had at the conference.

This year’s only disappointment: a conspicuous absence of abstinence-related bookmarks, which made an appearance in 2009.
