NYT: Choosing to cover Mitt Romney’s hair rather than report Obama’s scandals?

Do wonder how much effort our friends at the New York Times have put into investigating the various scandals swirling about the Obama administration, you know, like politicized hiring at the Justice Department, steering subsidies and loan guarantees to “green” companies with Democratic connections, selling guns to Mexican drug lords . . . .

Maybe their reporters are just too busy covering other issues, like, you know, important things, like, well . . .

. . .  Mitt Romney’s hair.

By far his most distinctive physical feature, Mr. Romney’s head of impeccably coiffed black hair has become something of a cosmetological Rorschach test on the campaign trail, with many seeing in his thick locks everything they love and loathe about the Republican candidate for the White House. (Commanding, reassuring, presidential, crow fans; too stiff, too slick, too perfect, complain critics.)

Thanks to my oldest nephew for the tip.  Guess this is just more newsworthy than the various Obama scandals.



  1. Either Obama will be uncovered as the useless, overpromoted hack that he is and the media will crow “Of course we knew all along!”, or he will prove it by leading the US into a horrific disaster and they will afterwards rend their clothes and sit in ashes screaming “How could we have missed it???”

    The chances of them discovering for themselves what a useless hack he is and them screaming “How could we have missed it???” seem minimal – anyone who hasn’t come around in their own right before that day won’t be fit to be called a journalist.

  2. Well, of course, it is. The media exists today to defeat any Republican and to assure Demoncrats are elected. Obama could be raping interns on the capital steps and selling drugs on TV and they would ignore it.

  3. But there are no Obama scandals. Jonathan Alter said so.

  4. As an uber smart, sophisticated liberal voter, I can assure all you knuckle-dragging, gay-hating, racist tea-baggers that the number one thing I look for in a candidate for president is stylish, hipster hair not the stuff-shirt do that Romney sports. Justin Trudeau has perfect hair. Too bad he can’t run.

  5. Kevin, I don’t quite think he could get away with that – that would be the “How could we have missed it” moment.

  6. It appears that the NYT is getting as shallow as those grocery store rags like the National Enquirer.

  7. SoCalRobert:

    In your comments, you forgot to add sexist, religionist to all the other slime words. I guess you had a forgetful senior moment. Oh, right, add ageist to your diatribe since I am one of those evil people.

  9. The NYT proves why it is birdcage or doggy pad material with such overt Democrat propaganda.

  10. I rather like a Tweet that came across this morning, to the effect that of course they’re reporting on Romney’s hair; it’s the only thing he has that is constant. 🙂

  12. Obviously the GOP has but one choice for their candidate next year:

    It’s Just So Darn Presidential!

  13. […] then again, maybe these folks are following the lead of the New York Times which, in reporting on Mr. Romney’s hair, seemed to be following the lead of magazines covering celebrities and the entertainment […]
