And speaking of haircuts, the maestro, the Manolo, weighs in on John Edwards' $400 buck coif:
"If the Manolo were the gambling man, he would be willing to bet that other candidates are also spending many hundreds of dollars each month on their hair care.
Certainly Mitt Romney and the hair-beplugged Joe Biden have the mark of the expensive stylist beast upon them. But then neither of these politicians is so simple as to have his campaigns pay for his hair care, which means that this expense will not become the matter of the public record, which was John Edwards’ true error.
Finally, if you doubt the importance of having the best haircut possible, the Manolo reminds you of the cautionary counter example, of the politician who has never spent more then $14 on his hair cut. His name is Dennis Kucinich."
I've always assumed that Kucinich was wearing a rug, but I suppose it is possible to have real hair that looks like that. And as bad as the one-time Boy Mayor of Cleveland's hair is, at least he never set it on fire. Lots of guys with mops like that would go the Paul Simon route and superglue a baseball cap to their heads, but Kucinich has more integrity than that.
