Last year, I wrote about how the Hair Club for Men picked Mitt Romney a/k/a “Mitt Happens” as the Presidential candidate with the best hair.
But perhaps they should have picked Joe Biden. He, after all, now has a special status as the first Vice Presidential pick of a major party to have a very obvious set of hair plugs. He is the only Veep candidate I know of to have gone from being bald (other than at infancy) to suddenly having a growing mane in front. There is no doubt he had hair transplants. The guy is wearing Barbie’s hair.
Look at the photos of him a couple of decades ago: Bald. Now, a weird set of Barbie Doll-style plugs in the middle of his forehead (and still very bald in back).
Biden’s plug job is so obvious he’s for years been a “don’t do” on sites like “RegrowHair.com,” as in this customer question from 2006:
Joe Biden in 1988 . . .
Joe Biden in 2008 . . .
Will I end up with a hair transplant like Senator Joe Biden?
I have a large bald area in the crown (top/back) with more hair in the front, but still thinning with a high hairline. I am concerned that a hair transplant in my case will show significant improvements in the front but I’ll still have a large bald spot on top/back.
Here’s an example of my concern about hair transplantation – Sen. Joe Biden. He looks like he’s had a hair transplant (if you compare now to old photos) and looks pretty good in front. But when his head is tipped forward, the top and back are quite sparse compared to the thickness of the front . . . that does not look natural. I would think a U.S. senator could afford the best hair restoration procedures so this is concerning me.
This is what I’m afraid of. Thoughts . . ? Joey
Methinks it’s kinda symbolic of the whole Obama candidacy. It’s all about fake, faux, phony, false. And the tacky Biden hair job is just the latest extension, the latest symbolism of this fraudulent Presidential candidate and his whole crew. And it’s a blatant sign of vanity above substance. All those poor people he claims to care about out there, why didn’t he just go bald and donate to them the thousands he spent on new follicular growth? It’s akin to having a female candidate who has obvious, large breast implants. It’s for bimbos and strippers. And Joe Biden is a himbo, sad to say.
Sorry, but I liked George Washington’s wig in the Commander-in-Chief position better than I like this fraud with plugs being a heartbeat away from that position.
And it’s not just that Biden’s hair isn’t really his or that the many speeches and words he and Obama have stolen from others (like, in Biden’s case, British Labor Party figure Neil Kinnock) aren’t theirs. It’s that nothing is real or the truth with these guys.
It’s all smoke and mirrors . . . and Barbie’s plugs.
Oh, and by the way, every time Biden refers to “rich Republicans” or his “working class roots” in Scranton, Pennsylvania, ask him how much a hair transplant job costs.
Hint: This vanity cosmetic procedure is far more expensive than an average working class family can afford.
**** UPDATE: Some people think this video on Biden and his hair plugs is funny. I will reserve comment:
