4/18: Here’s my followup post to this one.
A little light-hearted news to lighten the mood a little, via Ben Smith:
Well, John Edwards’ campaign for president spent $400 on February 20, and another $400 on March 7, at a top Beverly Hills men’s stylist, Torrenueva Hair Designs.
The expensive haircut is, of course, a perennial. Bill Clinton got zinged for getting a cut from Cristophe, and Hillary was found at one point to have buried a stylist on her campaign payroll.
Edwards’ campaign also spent money at two spas: Designworks Salon in Dubuque, and Pink Sapphire in Manchester.
Smith also links up to this infamous video, which is always good for a laugh or three:
Now I have never understood why anyone would spend that amount of money on their hair – especially a man. No offense, but take a look at Edwards. I mean, what is there to cut? My dad has been going to a barbershop for decades and could get the same decent cut for about $12.
