Am I the only one who has noticed the obsession of the GOP with candidates who have good, no, magnificent hair?
There can be no dispute that in the past election, with Perry and Romney, they totally dominated the important issue of hair.
I think they are onto something here. Can anyone remember the last time a bald or even bald-ish man was elected president? In a well thought-out hair-based strategy they are cleverly picking candidates who take this key factor into account.
I think it goes back to the trauma of when Kennedy beat Nixon. For the GOP this was a game changer. Nixon was heir (not hair) apparent to the god emperor Eisenhower, and thus anointed by god to be the next occupant of the White House.
But Kennedy’s glorious hair prevented the will of god from being implemented.
Since that dark, dark day I think they have under-taken to never ever be “out-haired” again…
PS: Oh yes, I remembered. The last president of the US to be bald was Dick Cheney.
PPS: But the very important “hair rule” meant that he had to pretend that George Senior’s kid was president.
