Bill Clinton's $200 haircut

Revised

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.

Re: Bill Clinton's $200 haircut

First off...

But, what I have always wondered  , which African Americans considered him the first Black President?

I've always wondered that too! Seriously, what white guy dubbed Bill the first black president?

And also....

Oh, yeah, she wants to ban flag burning.

Well, the only time it came up for a vote during her Senate tenure, she voted no.

Yawn.

I'll start getting more "worked up" when you stop using right wingnut memes in your headlines and when you present your research on all of the republican candidates' personal grooming and sartorial expenditures - just for comparison.

Re: Yawn.-nice try.

Right wingers attack the Clinton for not being easy enough on the rich.  Never for not being progressive enough.  You are a Hillary troll.

Re: Yawn.-nice try.

We don't need right wing attacks when she is wrong on liberal values of ethics/war/healthcare

These people need to accept either she is not their person, or they are not actually progressive.

Re: Yawn.-nice try.

Clinton has a 95% progressive score.  It is baloney to tell us we are not progressives.  

Besides, Obama has a lot of Republican supporters, as you well know.  How come HE wants to erase the labels "progressive," "moderate," "conservative" but you throw them around and award them as you please?

Re: Yawn.-nice try.

I've never seen you post here before.  How come YOU tell others that they are trolling?

Yawn.

You are a Hillary troll.

You have the discrimination of a rock and the credibility of Michelle Malkin.

Jeese. I miss the good old days. The quality of the commentary has really slipped around here. It's no fun anymore - like clubbing baby harp seals.

Re: Bill Clinton's $200 haircut

Goody.  Another "highly interesting" bash-Clinton diary.  We need more posters that can write informative diaries of that style.

Re: Bill Clinton's $200 haircut

Mark Penn should keep in mind that the Clintons live in a glass house. In addition, the accomplishments or lack thereof for any candidate are fair game.

Re: Bill Clinton's $200 haircut

Big yawn indeed! Why don't you go back to your workshop of little horrors and try to come up with a better class of insult? On second thoughts don't bother.

now we're on to Bill bash

This is really good news for Hillary. In the end, those left loonies will find out Bill Clinton certainly is beloved by democrats. The more desperate the attacks are, the better for team Hillary.

Re: now we're on to Bill bash

We are almost half way there. Soon we will pass the 6 month mark and will no doubt see these attacks and smears increase as the poll numbers for certain candidates collapse further.

A few problems with this diary

1. Bill Clinton isn't running for president

2. Bill Clinton doesn't pay for his haircuts using his campaign coffers.

3. Bill Clinton isn't Hillary Clinton. Hillary also doesn't cut his hair.

Re: A few problems with this diary

Those attacks are just so amateur. How can you take these supporters' candidate seriously? Looks to me an inflated Dean bubble in the making.

"Inflated Dean bubble" is a good term for it.

Re: Bill Clinton's $200 haircut

This is madness.  Now Bill is getting attacked, as if he is Hillary.  I wonder if the republican candidates' supporters attack each other like the democrats do, for it is getting pretty vicous.

Re: Bill Clinton's $200 haircut

That $200 haircut was when Bill Clinton was president.  He had to wait in Air Force One on the tarmac for security reasons and the hair stylist had to be brought in.  The security detail took almost 5 hours.   For all that, $200 is certainly not too much, although the crappy right-wing tried to make it into an issue anyway.

THIS JUST IN!!!!!!!!!!

President Bush got a trillion dollar haircut. Mysteriously the funds somehow found their way into the budget to pay for Iraq. Though to be fair I guess it did trim his approval ratings quite a bit.
