Seriously, I would expect any Presidential candidate to spend a lot of money on his/her appearance. You can have humble roots, be down to earth, and still spend a lot of money on your appearance and I guess I don't see that as being all that hypocritical. He's running for President. Throw in a bit of color and a manicure and I'd say $200 is a deal. But I'm crazy that way.
And the fact that the hairdresser came to him, it almost sounds cheap...

^ indeed

Is it a gender thing? Are they just making fun of him again for being "pretty"? I'm sure Hillary spends a fortune on her hair. I mean, what are they really saying here?

I don't think very many straight men pay $200 for a hair cut.

Now, for (a) trim.

It just seems like a desperate attempt to dig up something on him. If that's all they've got, big whoop de do -- no pun intended but it's good, don'tcha think?

But what if it was a cut, shave, and color (oh my) plus him traveling there? Yes I admit still a little steep, but not that bad once you figure in his travel and that he's a Rodeo drive stylists...

It reminds of the Bill Clinton Christophe haircut story, and how they tried to make a big deal of that.

I just think it rocks that he went to a place called the Pink Sapphire. I've seen his hair in person, it is quite lustrous and lovely.

Seriously I think it's commendable that a man cares about his appearance enough to do that- as long as it doesn't become an obsession, same for women. I think it's preposterous to think that has any effect or anything to do with his caring for the poor or his policies. His house-well I think it's way over the top but he came from very humble roots and he earned it. So if that's how he wants to live, that's his choice. It would take much more than that to convince me that he's a phony.

Quad City Times


Quad-City barbers put down their shears and sputtered words like “preposterous” and “impossible” Wednesday when they heard of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards spending $400 for a haircut. In the Quad-Cities, $10 or $12 is about average.

“If I charged $400 for a haircut, they’d come after me with white coats,” said Leo Fier, who has been cutting hair for 49 years at his shop in DeWitt, Iowa.

Edwards’ campaign committee filed a financial report with the Federal Election Commission noting that the White House hopeful paid $400 for haircuts in California and New Hampshire, and $248 for salon services in Dubuque, Iowa.

“That’s impossible, $400,” said Don “Dutchman” Braafhart, who runs Dutchman’s Barbershop in Davenport.

Next time he’s in town, Edwards would get a real bargain at Davenport Barber College, where supervised student barbers charge only $7.50.

Even some Quad-Citians who allow their locks to grow long are shocked by a $400 haircut.

“My Santa Claus long hair is my trademark,” said Terry Lunardi, Davenport restaurateur. “I just had my hair cut Monday for $10. And I have a lot of hair to cut.”

Kurt Ullrich, a Scott County deputy auditor whose hair runs long, said, “Edwards and I are of a similar age and I took note of his hair when I visited briefly with him in Davenport. His hair is thick, full and beautifully coiffed, whereas mine is counter-culture long. Sixteen dollars is the most I’ve ever paid for a haircut.”

There are a few Quad-City shops that rise above the $10 average. A man’s haircut may range from $18 to $42 at some specialty salons. Operators at two of those shops said they would welcome Edwards, and not charge his campaign $400.

A barbaric price for cutting hair may not be unusual. Jay Ledford, who runs Cut Rite, Moline, with his dad, Jay Sr., insists that a number of years ago, President Clinton had his hair cut in Davenport. “I can’t remember the barber, but he only charged him $150,” Ledford said.

I suspect he was playing off of "Bomb Iraq" to the same tune which Capitol Steps recorded several years back. It's one thing for a band of political satirists to do that though...
