On Sunday, the New York Post, that bastion of neutrality, had a piece about Senator Biden entitled: "Is Joe Hidin’ Facial Work."  First of all, how do you "hide" facial work? Put scaffolding around your eyes? Wear a goalie mask?  This is yet another attempt by the conservative biased media to "hide" John McCain’s abysmal record.  How does Biden having "definitely had Botox in the forehead region" or appearing to have had "some sort of ‘Lateral Brow/Eyelid Lift’" affect ONE AMERICAN?  Actually, I take that back.  It does affect one American: the doctor who did the procedure.  Everyone else should shut the fuck up.  This is reminiscent of John Edwards and his $400 haircut.  I don’t care if he’d spent $700,000 on his haircut – it’s his money.  Same thing with Biden. If he wants to get a tattoo on his face like Mike Tyson, he has my blessing.  If he wants to fill his cheeks up with silicone so he looks like a squirrel, go right ahead, sir.  If he wants to invest in gold teeth like Flava Flav, he should go for it. 

The Republicans say they want to get government out of the lives of the American people – unless it comes down to a women’s body or wiretapping your phone or telling a Senator what he can and can’t legally spend his money on.  "Excuse me, Mr. Rove – is it okay if Hillary Clinton buys that dress at Bonwit Teller?  And which credit card would you prefer she put it on?"  If Joe Biden is spending his money on mink eyelashes like Madonna then I have a problem with it – but only because minks are adorable. Otherwise leave the guy alone and concentrate on fixing our country before America is transformed into a full-fledged Banana Republic (if we’re lucky) or a Third-World nation (if we’re not).
