I've got to say. The Ax looks great without the "stache"

David Axlerod without his moustache (which he shaved for charity.) He said his wife told him she always hated the moustache so maybe it is a look he will keep.

He does look great. Sorry. No pics. New Kindle. Have not learned all the tricks yet.

1. I thought he looked younger after the shave when I watched it on Morning Joe.

He looks neater without it. It was always a little messy looking...

6. He looks 10 years younger. It'll take some getting used to.

7. I can tell you from personal experience ...

that it takes more than "some" getting used to: it took me a lot.

My husband (now of 38 years) had a beard (and mustache) when I first met him. You know, the handsome hippie guy with long curls and the full facial hair. Nine years later, he came downstairs one day, totally without warning, clean shaven. I didn't even know who I was looking at. It was a total shock. I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not at first. (Decades later, I definitely prefer him clean shaven: every time he's tried to grow back the facial hair, in an effort to avoid shaving every day, it comes in gray and scraggly, and it ages him by ten years: I make him shave it off.)

My reaction was mild, however, compared to that of our 2-year-old daughter, who got so freaked out she didn't know who this man was, and kept screaming and crying, and wouldn't let him near her. I finally had to pencil in a beard and mustache with an eyebrow pencil to show her it was "Daddy." That worked, though it took her a while to overcome her leeriness.

9. WOW!!! What a story! It was similar to my father. He always had facial hair. Then cut it all off.

People freaked out. He grew the hair back and hasn't looked back since.

8. Grow the mustache back

He has no upper lip. I would work on taming those eyebrows.

Glad he could raise so much for his cause.

5. I saw a picture with him without it

It just about scared the shit out of me. For the love of god Axe, grow the mustache back.

He has a beautiful wife. Lucky guy.
