Now don’t forget, I’m a huge nerd, and I watch the news a lot. No—more than that. I’m a news junkie. So anyhoo…
Here’s my observation for the day. If I were Meg Whitman—no, if I were ANYONE who had SO much $$$$$$ that I could spend $70 million OUT OF MY OWN POCKET for a political campaign, I’d damn well find somebody to fix my hair.
I mean, clearly, money is no object, so what’s up with that look? Doesn’t she have a mirror? Then Carly Fiorina goes on tv and mocks Barbara Boxer’s hair. She says it’s dated. What the what???? Like Carly has room to talk. She’s not exactly setting any trends with that do.
I’m just saying Meg Whitman has a forehead the size of Australia, and a different hairstyle might flatter her more. Or might flatter her. At all.
Now my hair’s not anything to brag about, but I’m not running for office, either. And I’m not on tv. And you may feel free to mock my hair all you want. I’m okay with that. I complain about it all the time, so don’t hesitate to join me. We can start a Facebook page of “People Who Hate Leah’s Hair.” Well, maybe not. I could turn out to be sensitive about it.
This reminds me, though, of someone who has good hair. Rick Perry, the governor of Texas, used to be called “Rick ‘Good Hair’ Perry” by the late columnist Molly Ivins. I miss Molly. She was a shrewd observer of the political scene. And an excellent judge of hair.
