No Haircuts, No Makeup… How About Iraq, Health Care and the Environment?

Okay, can we all agree that rich people running for president spending a lot for grooming is kind of a non-issue?

From CBS News:

Republican Mitt Romney’s surge to the top of the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire is unquestionably good for his presidential hopes, but by rising to the top so early, it’s also left him with a big target on his back — and it looks like his opponents are now taking aim.

Taking a page from Karl Rove’s playbook, two charges waged against Romney this week target two of his supposed strengths: His anchorman-like looks and his squeaky-clean family values. When the Romney campaign released its full second-quarter spending report a few days ago, it included a $300 charge for makeup applied at a California beauty salon — echoing the story of John Edwards’ $400 haircuts. And like Edwards, Romney might soon see the "pretty boy" label start to stick.

Seriously, folks, this doesn’t matter a bit, whether it’s Edwards’ $400 haircuts, or Mitt’s $300 make up job. I don’t give a rat’s ass if they get manicures and pedicures every other day. I want to know if they can fix the goddamn mess Bush is going to leave. I’m sure Romney can’t, but it’s not because he’s a wusswho needs $300 in makeup to look good.

Please, news media… let’s concentrate on issues and substance. Leave the bullshit to Fox Noise Channel.

Hey… wonder if this will cause Hannity to stop bringing the $400 haircut up every single night?

Nahh… he’s not very bright.
