First Hair Club For Men Veep?: Vain Joe Biden “Plugs” the Toupee Presidency

By Debbie Schlussel
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 “,” 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:

I’m sure more middle-class conservative men can relate to Biden’s hair transplant than McCain’s 7 houses.

“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.”
Perfectly stated Debbie.
I hate baldness (on me)–I have more hair than most–but can see that over time I will get balder and balder. The hair transplant Biden has makes the point even more than a crummy toupe or comb-over–do the best with what you have–learn to accept that.
As far as Joe “plugs” Biden goes–what an amazing choice. His vanity and condescending manner make him the perfect choice for the Obama dem ticket. The only better choice (to show the hypocrisy of these libs) would have been for Obama to select John pimp-daddy Edwards. You remember him–he was going to run a race out of conviction for doing the right thing …and all that crap. He could have been there at the convention with his latest love child for the family photos to show how much passion he has for cleaning up Washington..oh well
This should be a hilarioius campaign–I hope Hilary attempts her democrat party coup, now. That will be the icing on the cake.

I believe in honest baldness. Those bad plugs and comb overs (think Ehud Olmert) fool nobody. As for plagiarizing – why on Earth plagiarize the neo Communist loser Neil Kinnock?

Bob Costas also is not fooling anyone with that rats nest on his head.

    Nor with the plastic surgery. His face barely moves when he talks. He is sports’ answer to Barry Manilow.

I still think in that photo Joe looks SO much like the late George Carlin. I keep expecting him to come out with one of George’s routines…Al Sleet anyone…???

Well, that stuff doesn’t bother me so much. Losing one’s hair is traumatic.
What does bother me is the fact his “roots” are being described as humble. Being the son of a car dealer is far from humble. I WISH my Dad had been a car dealer, a Cadillac dealer, matter of fact. Car dealerships in any decent sized city are cash making machines. They are not “easy money” but they make money, and lots of it.

Don’t kid yourself, this country values good looks over everything. If someone doesn’t like you, the first they pick on is your physical appearance. To quote Billy Crystal as Fernando Lamas, “Remember, it’s better to look good than to feel good. And you look Mahvelous!”

Nawaz Sharif too.

Per usual the liberal press sets the agenda. Biden’s father was a car salesman I say again a car salesman which would make him lower middle class by rights.
Never forget that he learned his values at home, the home of a car salesman, that epitome of American values, that profession so often held up to us as an exemplar of honesty, and the American way in general.

Teeth anyone? Yomamma has perfectly capped teeth bleached so bright that his wife can read by them.

Joe Biden’s first adventure in hair transplants was botched. It seems the wrong area was used to remove real hair, unfortunately that area of hair is the area not used for transplant because it is unable to regrow. Poor Joe not only had to replug one area but had to replug the replugged area. Looks like an omen to me

Much as I dislike my baldness, this is me. If I want the world to, I should first to accept myself, as I am.

That’s not “Barbie hair” and those aren’t “hair plugs.” Hair plugs are a thing of the past now. These days balding men with money get “hair transplants” which are completely different. The main difference is that instead of putting doll’s hair plugs in the scalp, they take hair follicles that resist the baldness causing hormone DHT from the side and back of your head and surgically graft them onto the balding areas where they continue to grow naturally. So the hair you see on Joe Biden’s head is his own hair, growing out of his head. Why shouldn’t he move his hair to where he wants it if he thinks it looks better that way?
