While some people are preoccupied with the fact that Joe Biden’s son was dishonest about his experience with hedge funds, Politico raises a truly important issue about Obama’s new running mate: Does he have plugs? Or worse: Has he had a hair transplant? And if so, what does this mean for America? Some may see it as a bad thing: If he lies about his hair, he may lie to us about more important things! Except he hasn’t totally denied it. “I’ve got to keep some mystery in my life,” he told the Washington Post when they asked, back in the eighties, a question similar to the one we pose in the headline. But it may not be a total negative: Hillary supporters who are disappointed that the New York senator wasn’t tapped for V.P. can take solace in the fact that this will still be a ticket of firsts: If they win, we’ll have the first black president and the first hair-plug president (we think — now that we look back on it, Dan Quayle’s hair was little suspect). However, if Biden is going to be on the world stage from now on, he might want to consider getting his do done up right. “In my view, his haircut and style do not complement his squarish face shape,” Sky Vega, a stylist in New York, told Politico. “A forward comb with a serrated fringe would soften that.” Seriously — dude cannot be in a picture with Sarkozy or that luscious Saakashvili with a swathe of butt hair on his head. Biden, we implore you: Get hair-apy.
