Haircare For All!

Who could imagine that in America today 45 million people are going without haircuts on a regular basis? It's hard to imagine that in 2007 we are the only industrialized country in the world that doesn't guarantee free and universal access to haircuts to all its citizens.

Meanwhile, people like presidential candidate John Edwards can flagrantly spend 400 dollars on one sitting at the beauty parlor. By God, something needs to be done! The for-profit beauty industry sits callously by as millions suffer from treatable split ends, breakage and drying. Forget about the civil war in Iraq, the lying at the White House, global warming and all those other trivial problems. We need to make this election about haircuts! As long as people like John Edwards can spend 400 dollars on a haircut while others can't get into a barber's chair, we will be the embarrassment of the developed world.

Hell, even Cuba guarantees its citizens free haircare. Cuba has one of the best haircare systems in the third world, but John Edwards doesn't want you to know that. Edwards and the other Republican and Democratic candidates have taken way too much money from barbers and beauty salon owners. The only candidates that will stand up to them are Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel. Forget about everything else you think is an important issue in this election. Vote for free haircare for all!

-Sorry for this somewhat ludicrous post, but I just can't believe that after everything this president has screwed up, some Republican political operative somewhere is thinking that they can make this election about John Edwards' haircuts. I'm amazed and nauseated at the same time.

I sympathize with your outrage.
I suggest reading Graydon Carter's "No, He Is Not the Paris Hilton of U.S. Presidents" at
