Breck Girl Feels Pretty Maligned

The press blowout that John Edwards paid $400 for a haircut, twice, in fact, really don’t have the story straight. Worse, YouTube has Edwards aka “The Breck Girl” messing with his hair for two minutes to the tune of “I Feel Pretty”, which makes him appear vain.

In the first place, the Breckster would not pay that for a haircut. It was paid out of campaign funds, so it was a free haircut. That is a big difference. Even for the contributors, it comes out to less than one cent per. In the second place, he has decided to reimburse the campaign to show foreigners what America is all about. As he put it, people want to come to America “because people like me can come from nowhere, the son of a mill worker…and now be running for president and pay $400 for a haircut.”

He added, “People around the world look at us and say, ‘That’s what we want. We want that kind of chance.’ ”
