John Edwards's great hair

From this week's Patriot Post:

John Edwards has great hair. Of course, you would have great hair, too, if you paid $400 for a trim in Beverly Hills, as Demo presidential candidate Edwards has in recent weeks. Unfortunately, Edwards’ personal spending on haircuts is just the latest misstep by the man who is trying to appeal to America’s populist vote. Two weeks ago, his wife Elizabeth derided their neighbor for his “slummy” property. Now, don’t get us wrong—we live in a capitalist society that allows us to spend the fruits of our labor as we see fit, and if a man wants to blow $400 on a haircut, well, best wishes to him. Likewise if he can afford a 28,000-square-foot mansion. Edwards, though, will have a tough time convincing voters that he has even a clue about the less affluent of those “two Americas” he keeps talking about, but at least he’ll look good trying.
