Bill Clinton's $200 haircut

Hillary Clinton proudly promotes herself as a champion of the middle class, and yet Bill Clinton went and got a $200 haircut. Does this bother you? It does not bother me. In fact, my mother-in-law thinks Bill Clinton is "guapo". I say $200 well spent when you can get my beloved mother-in-law to approve.
What does bother me is NAFTA and the negative impact it had on the working poor in the US and Mexico. But, hey Bubba needs to look good, right? Indeed, Bill Clinton did look visually sharp when he passed draconian welfare cuts with Gingrich by his side in the Rose Garden. Dick Morris is a Genius! And we all remember the hip Bill Clinton jamming on the Arsenio Hall show. Sunglasses, looked great, by the way. Sweet times, indeed. In fact, Bill Clinton is so tune with the African American community that he was dubbed, "the first Black President". But, what I have always wondered , which African Americans considered him the first Black President? Was it those whose economic situation got worse during his Presidency? Or those experienced a decrease in investment in their community so that more prisons could could be built. I focused on Bill because I am only able to recall most of his accomplishments and none from Hillary's senate record. I only recall Hillary going along with Bush agenda. There is not a single initiative that come to mind as far as her leadership is concerned. Oh, yeah, she wants to ban flag burning. There, the one issue that comes to mind is her attack on the Constitution. You see when it comes to haircuts I think we should implement a policy of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell". Union-busting Mark Penn (makes me wonder was the Soprano's parody really a parody?) insists on taking the low road and push polling on John Edwards' $400 haircut. If so, then I say bring it on. I am sure that after Hillary Clinton takes a beating in Iowa, NH and South Carolina she will discover her populist side as Bill did when arrived at the convention in 92. This time around with the blogs and people power politics only a few clueless souls will trickle down to you.
