Is Michelle Bachmann's Hair the New 'Rachel'? Should We Be Scared?
It's a fact of life that women in politics get scrutinized more often for their looks than men do. It's hard not to because male politicians seem to all blend together in their suits and striped ties. Women have more options for styling and grooming, and it's just a fact of life that people will notice. Since it's our job to notice these things, let's talk about Michelle Bachmann. No, we do not agree with her politics. At all. But her hair? Apparently women on both sides of the aisle are agreeing that Bachmann's hair is covetable. The New York Daily News ran a story today about how women--both liberals and conservatives--are requesting the "Bachmann."
