After it was disclosed that John Edwards' campaign committee picked up the tab for a haircut costing $18 at SUPERCUTS, Republicans have spoken out.
"Not only is an $18 cut unpresidential," said Newt Gingrich, "he had a $2 off coupon, so he only paid $16. This sends the wrong message to the two Americas he's always talking about. He is depriving corporate America of those $2, while rewarding the second America with a discount for being too fat and lazy to get a better job so they can afford a $400 haircut."
SUPERCUTS stylist Lawanda Robinson defended Edwards. "He was no penny pincher," she said. "He was thinking about getting the Sanjaya "faux" hawk before he even saw the $4 off "faux" hawk coupon sitting on the counter. But when he found out how long it would take, he said 'maybe next time.'"
