A retort to the Edwards "Haircutgate" nonsense.

Edwards got a $400 haircut paid for out of campaign funds. The yelling starts.

Hm.

OK.

1. That is what campaign funds are there for. In a campaign realm where TV rules, the grooming, personal appearance and general telegenic appeal of candidates is of vast importance. Ergo, the upkeep of said appearance is as important to a campaign as polling, ads and voter lists. Name for me, please, the last poorly-groomed candidate who got anywhere. Example:

Remember the goofy Kucinich hairdo that wound up on all those buttons? Remember when they got him a better haircut as the 2004 campaign started? Hmmm...

Every candidate you've ever supported has received haircuts, makeup (for ads and debates) and other grooming/appearance things that were paid for by the campaign. Cope with it. If you still don't get it, you either have no concept of how campaigns work, or...

2. I smell manufactured outrage from those who support other candidates. There, I said it.
