This is Too Easy!
I have alluded before to my distaste for John Edwards, and my feeling that he is a hypocrite in his professed concern for the poor and downtrodden of the "other America" of his speeches. Here's people's exhibit #364--a NY Times article detailing how he paid $400 for a haircut, and then "mistakenly" charged it to his campign funds. Even more fun--some bloggers are pointing out that he also had an expensive "do" recently at the "Pink Sapphire Salon." Yep, there are two Americas alright--mine, where a guy named Roger can't quite pull off an $11 flattop with the same flair as Bubba, and John Edwards' America, where the stylists at the Pink Sapphire charge over a tithe of the income of an average American family for a haircut. Although, in his defense, I'll bet for that kind of moola, he got a blow-dry and maybe a warm towel treatment, too. I wonder if he got a hot-lather neck shave with a straight razor? I do for my $11.
