Hillary Rodham Clinton admits she’s never been good at coiffure — and that being secretary of state is an endless bad hair day. “I do not travel with any hairdresser, or anybody, to help me do that, and I’m not very competent myself,” she dished to ABC’s Barbara Walters. “I’ve been admitting that for years, which should be obvious to everyone,” she joked in an interview. Since she came to national attention as Bill Clinton’s headband-wearing spouse, her more-than-40 different hairstyles and lengths have received constant scrutiny.
What a load of bull-squeeze, as Neil Boortz would say. She has an entourage that Ari Gold would envy. This is a cultivated shabby look. I´m a-guessin´ that in the spring of 2016 [Mayan calendar permitting], the Beast will emerge with a perfect hairdo and a few lbs less.
The oxymoron of this story is the word ´joked´ in any quote involving the Hildabeest.
Her explanation just doesn´t wash. I know dozens of busy working women who do just fine caring for their hair and general appearance. Not being able to care for your own good grooming and hygiene is a sign of senility, not of an overly busy schedule.

I have my hair cut ever five weeks. I wash it every other day. It´s a good cut that I can are for easily and my hair always looks much better than Herself´s dirty hair. She looked very good during her run for the presidency.
In today’s vapid, superficial, political milieu, image is everything. When it comes to issues of vital national and international importance, it’s nevertheless difficult somehow to visualize Wife Hillary’s coiffure, conveniently located around her head, without also visualizing Husband Bill’s trousers, conveniently located around his ankles.
She´s well known in DC for her poor hygiene. It´s all part of the hippie lesbian thing. Bet her body hasn´t made contact with a razor in decades. It would explain the pants suits beyond her fat ankles.

Hillary Clinton has changed her hair style more times than I can count. Queen Elizabeth has kept the same style for 60+ years. The Queen doesn´t look like she fusses much about her hair, but she certainly doesn´t go out with it dirty.
I have sympathy for Hillary´s aging problem as I share the same birth-year. But a good haircut and color once every four weeks costs me $100 in rural NH and even given the higher costs of DC or NYC it surely is within her price range! She just doesn´t care.
PS All the women who won the Democrat NH elections are either lesbians or look like lesbians: it is a point of honor among them to not be attractive to men.
As much as I don´t like Hillary´s politics or personality, I do empathize with her difficulty in keeping up her appearance while flying all over the world. I look pretty bad coming off the plane after 27 hours on airplanes and in airports when I fly to Uganda.
Republican women usually look better groomed on TV than Dem women. Even Madeline Albright was well groomed. (She did the best she could with what she had to work with.) My hair stylist gives me a haircut that will look good for several months. Certainly PIAPS can afford a decent hair style that will be easy to maintain.
Whatever the old hag is striving to project, it ain´t working. Silly cow looks like a welfare woman on crack. Anyone get get a haircut and shampoo in an hour or maybe two. I get a precision short cut and my hair dresser actually gets on her knees to get it even. I pay her whatever I want to, - well, she is my granddaughter. lol
Well, when she was campaigning for Pres. back in 08 her hair did look good. Someone was with her to style it and fix it. So she can come through when there is a game.
I share her age plus a few more and gave up the hot rollers and curling irons long ago. Just find some one to cut your hair the way it grows so that all you have to do in the morning is run a brush through it. Even the wind cannot damgage it. This isn´t rocket science, she just doesn´t care. If she can´t care about her personal appearance then she doesn´t care enough to hold the job she has or even being President of the USA. We already have one of those and it is disasterous. I am pretty sick of all of them.
Condaleeza Rice always looked like she just stepped out of a band box (old expression for looking fabulous). In fact, her hair and dress style improved in her years as SOS. And, she was always a lady.
As another poster said, PIAPS (I´ve missed that expression) does think we´re fools to buy this BS and may prove to be right come 2016. Barbara et al will help her along and whitewash her past. For some reason, Americans have very short memories.
For the first time in my life, I agree with her. I have a bad hair life, and the ONLY way to keep it under control is keep it long and braided. It´s baby fine, very straight, very thick, and grows very fast. Perms don´t take, styles don´t stay in (yes, with both mousse and spray), and I can´t afford to get it fixed every day (which she could), AND I have to be at work at six in the morning. Shorter hair clings to my head like a seal pelt. Medium hair loses all body within hours. And the braid is usually fuzzed out by the end of the day.
Glad I wasn´t drinking coffee when I read #35 so I just spewed cracker & cream cheese, haha. As a woman, I do sympathize with any woman´s hair issues, and boy does Hill has ´em in spades. Probably the worst to me is when she pulls it back. She finally stumbled upon a winning do last night though not sure it was her real hair. Her short-to-midlength page boy was also pretty good, I think.
I never understand all the attention we conservatives give to this women’s appearance. Get over it, she just looks like the middle age supervisor at most offices in America. (And frankly she dresses better than most, considering office casual is now something my Mom would have not worn to shop at Waymart’s.) I said this before, she is not running for the acting role of Secretary of State, she IS the Secretary of State, an Office that does not have a dress code other then look nice and decent. Ok, She has no taste what so ever in her choices and, well hair has never been a priority. But let’s be truthful here, no matter what she looked like all the above post would find fault. We don’t like her politics, period, but that has nothing to do with her hair, I have seen many male politicians who would benefit with some pointers on how not to cover his bald spot. You guys would never have let Israel’s great Prime Minister Golda Meir through the door!
I agree w/ #3. As soon as she resigns as SoS, she´ll be at the exclusive spa, losing weight and having her body re-styled, extreme make-over. She´ll not only shed pounds, but wrinkles. She could donate enough skin to save a burn victim, but she´ll have the doc dispose of it secretly. The cover up will be bigger than Benghazi.
This woman is a dangerous very liberal politician looking to bring more socialist policies to this country. We need to unite in some way to take back some modicum of bargaining power rather than drone on about her horrible hair! Otherwise she could be our next president!!
Agree with #46 to some degree. I think we conservatives should refrain from appearance-bashing.
I have a different theory than most here:
Hillary is intentionally letting herself look tired, haggard, and somewhat unkempt. She believes this makes her look "serious" and will convince the public she´s "working hard."
And indeed she seems to be successful in this bit of image-manipulation. She´s an absurdly under-qualified hack who has done nothing but harm; yet polls show the public admires her and thinks she´s doing a great job.
We´ve all learned by now that Hillary´s every move is carefully calculated, with a specific political aim.
Seems plausible that she´s setting everything up for her to wow people in 2015. (Compared to the maximally-frumpy look she´s sporting now, any attempt to look professional will be a notable improvement.)
Secondary suspicion: Hillary has always admired the animal kingdom for having pretty, frivolous males whose principal purpose is reproduction, with the females doing all the important things and expected not to have attention-grabbing appearances.
She seeks not only the Presidency in 2016, but a fundamental transformation of human culture to better-mimic the matriarchial ways of animals, and to marshal all overt authority and influence to women.
She´s never been after just sexual equality. She´s always hoped to effect a radical reversal of sex roles in society. Cultivating this look before she gains the most powerful job in the world is an important step in that plan.
Who really cares about Hilarys straggly hair , at least it goes well with a broomstick.It´s that she is in a position in which she is habitually lieing. She is either travelling abroad or has a summer cold . This enables her to dodge House explainng before many elected politicians about Benghazi such as who gave the ´stand down´ amd Iranian born Jarrett negotiating in Iran for the USA. Bowing to the Saudis , asking for help in delivering arms to the rebels in Syria, it´s mind boggling ! Enough is Enough.
I´m going to defend Hillary a bit, here. Hillary travels the world constantly , while King Barry stays home and luxuriates and relaxes. Going through multiple time zones a couple of times a week is physically exhausting . King Barry sent Richard Holbrooke all over the world and he died suddenly at 69. Barry is and always has been a lazy slob and he makes Hillary and the other women do the heavy lifting. When he travels on our Boing VC-25 , he irritates the traveling media by disappearing into the bedroom for hours , no doubt with his companion Reggie Love . He´s also known to play cards while aboard Air Force One. While Jarrett and Michelle are pouring over policy papers on how to destroy the country, Barry plays Old Maid.
The piaps wasn´t nearly as gross-looking back when she was bubba´s platonic roommate in our White House.
As with every other elephant in even the most modest of zoos, there must have been a a hose-person at the ready to give herself! the occasional rinsing. Now, on her own, the truth about hillary´s unsanitary ways is seeping out. If we let her back into the White House unattended, the Servpro restoration contract will likely be in the millions.
To hell with her hair. I realize that it is a mess of maximum importance, but what is the extent of her complicity in the Benghazi debacle, not to mention other, less fatal foreign policy messes? After all, she is Secretary of State, and not some model for "Hairdo" magazine.
Lots of interesting comments. I believe that she looks like she does because that´s what she is: just a dirty old hippy of whom nobody can touch since she´s so powerful. This is what happens when you lower your standards from a James Baker, Henry Kissinger, to a lefty who thinks she knows what´s best for the world. Blech!
Call Hill-err-ee-ass... "Doggy Style" .... and mebbe BillyBob will come callin´ more than once a year... with a bucket o´ K-9 Jelly, jes´ in case.
Then again, mebbe not.
This body language (notice it´s not bawdy language) is a Dog Whistle... She´s tellin´ the interns and ho´s to come and git it... She ain´t gonna compete with ´em... She ain´t gonna try to stop ´em... Jes´ lettin´ BillyBoob do his ruttin´...
Saves lotsa her dwindlin´ energy, doncha know... ?
Yes, she could use a new hairdo, but I give her credit for staying away from Botox and face lifts in general. (As another poster said, her hair looks okay when clean and neatly pulled into a ponytail.)
She is just a mess. Period. I don´t care what length her hair is or isn´t. I just think if she has that kind of money and is in the public eye, she should do more to make herself look presentable--even in this day and age of casual everyday. I don´t have the time or physical energy to do much with myself anymore but, unlike her, I can still make myself look okay without much fuss.
Agree with No. 8 - the lib broad in my family actually goes to a barber & gets a style resembling a crew-cut. She looks awful, but she doesn´t seem to care. (She did have those luminere things put on her teeth & now she looks like she wears bright, white dentures). When she was young & cute, she was a cheerleader & a prom queen, but she "found her voice" as a militant feminist & outgrew the desire to please mortal men with her appearance. It´s all about having such big, serious things on your mind that you have no time for frivolous things like grooming doncha know!
Somehow the traveling excuse just doesn´t fly when it´s coming from the wife of the man who, back in the day, was not averse to holding up traffic on a runway in order to get his hair cut.... anybody remember that?
HOT SPRINGS, Ark.—On a recent late-fall Saturday, Barbara Deuschle, a local restaurant owner, was recounting her first impression of her congressman, Tom Cotton, who is now running for the Senate. It was back in August 2011, just before the young Republican lawmaker formally announced his first campaign for the House, and Cotton and his dad came to a party meeting to get to know the faithful. Cotton was a 34-year-old political unknown who had recently lived in Washington. "When he just parachuted down into this district, nobody ever heard of him," she recalls. "I said, ´Who are you? We´d never
WASHINGTON — Taxpayers can expect to get stuck with a more than $1 billion bill for the creation and repair of the federal ObamaCare Web site, a top House Republican warned. “The fact is, eventually they’ll get this Web site working at the cost of probably over a billion dollars,” House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (Calif.) said on Fox News Channel. The Obama administration did not respond to The Post’s questions Thursday about the tab for the round-the-clock “tech surge” deployed in mid-October to repair HealthCare.gov. The cost of building the bug-ridden site, which launched Oct.
On the list of scandals that plagued the Obama administration this past year, Benghazi has been the one the White House, Democrats, and their cheerleaders in the mainstream media dismissed with the greatest of ease. Unlike the IRS scandal, which though it has faded from the news had obvious constitutional and political implications, or the various spying scandals involving news organizations and the National Security Agency, which outraged large numbers of ordinary Americans, Benghazi was put down as a manufactured story that had little traction. Part of it was due to the obsessive, though understandable, focus of Republicans on the
No disrespect to Macaulay Culkin (#ALLDISRESPECTTOTHEPIGEONLADY), but we prefer The Pet Collective´s retelling of Home Alone to the original movie. Mostly because Kevin McCallister is now played by an adorable pug puppy. And if a pug puppy setting booby traps for teddy bear burglars isn´t adorable enough for you, the video also narrated by a small child. So forget Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. Forget Elf. This is the only Christmas movie you need to watch this year. (Snip for video)As you might suspect, the pug, named Jackson Rosa, could not be more over it...
I’m not sure what Chris Matthews was doing with President Obama yesterday, but it wasn’t hardball. It wasn’t even softball. It was more like wiffle ball. Everyone knew going in that the MSNBC host would be a sympathetic interviewer. But he knew he would be graded on his aggressiveness, so I expected at least a few fastballs. Uh uh. Instead, in a half-hour sitdown, there was one challenging question. Just one. It was as though Matthews was channeling Jay Carney. Matthews is a likable guy with a passion for politics, but he left his interviewing chops at the door. The
WASHINGTON — Sen. Ted Cruz, elected 13 months ago by actual voters, said Thursday he’d prefer to see state legislators pick U.S. senators – as they were until a century ago, when the 17th Amendment came along. Direct election of senators has eroded states’ rights, Cruz argued, speaking to a ballroom filled with conservative state lawmakers from around the country. “If you have the ability to hire and fire me,” he said, “I’m a lot less likely to break into your house and steal your television. So there’s no doubt that was a major step toward the explosion of federal power and
I´m sitting at my desk, looking at a photograph of a gangrenous foot. It is a bloated thing in hues of phlegmatic gray rot, sanguine inflammation, melancholic black bile, and choleric open sores — exhibiting all the humors of a meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council. Above the photograph, in bold white capitals on a dull, matte background are the words “smoking causes peripheral vascular disease.” The photograph is helpfully labeled “gangrene.” Below the photograph, in a bland sans-serif typeface with letters an eighth of an inch high, is “Marlboro Red.” This is a pack of Australian cigarettes,
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
