It came out this week that Mark Sanford used a government airplane to go get a haircut, hence making the cost well over $1,000.
When I first heard that I kept thinking about the John Edwards haircut fiasco. The right went after him viciously for this, calling him a hypocrite for spending $300 on a haircut when their are poor people out there who can’t even afford a $8.00 trim. Oh the hypocrisy of a man who championed for the poor to spend this kind of money!
But lets think about Mark Sanford, a man who was a beacon of conservatism to many. How is it “conservative” to spend so much government money on a haircut? This is true hypocrisy, but the coverage of it was much shorter lived than that of Edwards’ haircut. I guess that is what they mean by “liberal media”.
