You thought John Edwards’s $400 haircut was bad? How about John Edwards’s $1250 haircut?
I like the defense, though:
“Breaking news — John Edwards got some expensive haircuts and probably didn’t pay enough attention to the bills,” said spokeswoman Colleen Murray. “He didn’t lie about weapons of mass destruction or spring Scooter Libby; he just got some expensive haircuts.”
I’m going to have to remember that one with the wife. “Breaking news, honey: I got an electric guitar that cost a month’s salary — but I didn’t lie about weapons of mass destruction!” Or I could try it at work. “Breaking news, boss. I told the judge it was okay to let the murderer out on $200 bail. But I didn’t spring Scooter Libby!”
