My Little Silk Pony: Man of the People

Well, I was looking to discuss the News and Observers latest article on the complete and utter F*** ups in by Nifong in the Duke Lacrosse case, but this story is too perfect to ignore:

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards may be campaigning as a populist, but when he's in L.A., he gets a $400 haircut from a Beverly Hills stylist.

Edwards' presidential campaign reported twice paying $400 for haircuts at Torrenueva Hair Designs, according to reports filed this week with the Federal Elections Commission.

Wait, they have to file haircuts with the FEC? You have got to be kidding me. Of course, a report like this is great political fodder.

But Joseph Torrenueva said one reason the haircut was pricey was because he went to Edwards rather than having the former senator come to his shop a block off Rodeo Drive.

"I do cut his hair and I have cut it for quite a while," Torrenueva told The Associated Press.

Edwards has spent a considerable time in California raising funds.

Edwards' campaign also reported spending $250 in services from Design Works Salon in Dubuque, Iowa, and $225 in services from the Pink Sapphire in Manchester, N.H.

Ariana Franggos, owner of the Pink Sapphire, said she was hired by the Edwards campaign to apply TV makeup for an Edwards television appearance. She said she has done the same thing for "quite a few" other presidential candidates.

I bet all you folks out there are used to having a top flight hair designer come to you, eh? And makeup artists. Man of the People, definately. Would someone please get him a latte' and his slippers? Thank you.

Beth at Blue Star Chronicles has more.

This makes me feel a lot better about Edwards’ concerns about the two Americas. It’s obvious he’s really in touch with the poor of America! I’m sure he’s 100% sincere in his concerns for the poor.


Much later update: Hot Air says "Silk Pony" is to no longer be used. Henceforth, he is to be called Pink Sapphire. Are there waivers for North Carolina residents?

    Most Americans are not going to choose their vote based upon the cost of the haircut.
    The Republicans are fairing very badly in the race for the White House. Have you seen the alarming drop in the odds/payoff in the 2008 election ? Take a look at the Iowa Electronic Markets.
    I say put your money where you think it will pay off

    ‘Saving Private Ryan’ is impossible WT! He still is miffed that impeached President William
    ‘Stainmaster Carpetbagger’ Clinton is the ONLY two-term Democratic president since World War II! Polls are meaningless Ryan’s Excuse! Texas Governor George W. Bush won 30 red states in 2000 and 31 in 2004. In 2004, over 61 million votes went to Dubya and we turned out in record numbers. A phony trial lawyer millionaire that gets $400 haircuts DOES mean something to red state Americans and again, the liberal Demliblunatic elites will under estimate the 31 red state voters. GIULIANI – ROMNEY – or FRED THOMPSON IN 2008. How sweet it is! The DNC is the party of 47 million abortions, treason, surrender, illegal aliens, Godlessness and incarcerated murders, rapists and thieves.
    Go ahead and donkey-up Ryan!

    Poor bastard. What a dumbass, does he not know he doesn’t have to pay $400 for a haricut and has he never heard of Cuts by Us or Cost Cutters? LOL

  4. John Ryan says:

    Polls show that people regret the choice they made in 2004. There was another election in 2006 the G.O.P did poorly in that one poor Darth still regrets that his Star Wars movies don’t seem to thrill Americans like they used to

  5. Tell me, John: what had Edwards ever done while serving in the Senate? What has he done since, other then proving that he is one of those elite bastards that he complains about?
