ABC News takes pains to include Edwards haircut meme in article on celebrities and “their people.”
Filed under 02_waveflux
Well, in fairness, Edwards has spent nearly as much on his hair as Bush has spent on his war.
Not to put to fine a point on it, but they have confused separate issues. John Edwards got a $1250 haircut *in 2004* It was so expensive because the Beverly Hills stylist flew to Atlanta, losing 2 days worth of business in his salon. That haircut came out of Senator Edwards’ pocket. More recently, it appears that campaign funds were used to pay for a couple of haircuts at $400 each. Either way, how is this news? Unfortunately, in today’s media, a haircut gets more attention than health care. Perhaps that’s because a good haircut is liable get a candidate more votes than a good health-care policy would.
Primate male politics: they are trying to feminize John Edwards, to make him seem concerned about his appearance.
As if they aren’t projecting as always.
