Baby boomer narcissism has officially reached a new level, well beyond the reach of satire.

As noted briefly by Sean Hannity on his FOX News program last night, major Democratic Party donor, far-left activist and sometime actress Jane Fonda appeared outside the posh Mr. Chow restaurant in Hollywood earlier this week, wearing a t-shirt with her own picture on the front.

Not just any picture, either, but her semi-iconic mugshot, taken in 1970.

In November of that year, the actress was returning to the United States from Canada, where she’d addressed an anti-Vietnam War fundraiser.  Customs officials wrongly accused Fonda of drug smuggling after finding vitamins in her luggage. She was fingerprinted, and the now-famous mugshots were taken at the same time.

“Earlier this year,” reports the UK Daily Mail in a July 14, 2009, “Fonda gave her permission for her teen pregnancy charity the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention to raise money using her mugshot on T-shirts, mugs and tea towels.”

The mugshot is not as famous as other photographs of Jane Fonda, such as those depicting her “giving aid and conmfort” to America’s Communist enemies during a visit to North Vietnam in 1972. Those infamous photos show a giddy Fonda striking childlike poses while sitting atop an anti-aircraft gun that was normally aimed at U.S. fighter planes.

The trip earned Fonda a lasting nickname from her detractors: “Hanoi Jane.”
