Kerry's bad hair year


Stilll yet another survey on an issue of vital importance to voters——candidate's hair.  As this blurb admits, a candidate's looks may influence voters. Indeed many observers believe Richard Nixon's infamous five o'clock shadow during his debates with the then relatively unknown John F. Kennedy made him look shifty and unpleasant, one of the many factors that ultimately cost him the election. 

Seventy—six percent of respondents to a Grooming Lounge (where political—party heads as well as celebrities such as Bruce Willis and Elliot Gould get coiffed while in Washington) poll say President Bush has better hair than his rival.
