U.S. Senator David Vitter offered Mardi Gras koozies for donations…but not in time for Mardi Gras 

Vitter offers 'Mardi Gras' koozies for donations

  U.S. Sen. David Vitter hit upon a Carnival-themed fundraiser last week when it offered "exclusive Mardi Gras koozies" for people who would "chip in $10" online to his gubernatorial campaign. The email offer was sent out on Lundi Gras, which didn't give Vitter fans time to hit the parade route with the purple koozie bearing Vitter's logo.

  While Louisianans have a particular fondness for koozies — is there anyone in the state without a drawer full of them? — other politicians have had the same idea. During the 2012 presidential primary, GOP candidate Herman Cain sold his own koozies, while visitors to the re-election campaign site of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden could pick up a $10 koozie with Biden's face on the side and the message "CHEERS CHAMP."
