Romney's $2000 makeup charges

I'm just going to give you the link this time, because there's some embedded stuff in it that's pretty good. But the basic point is that over the last four years, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has declared about $2000 in campaign expenses for makeup artists.

Which, of course, would be perfectly reasonable for a guy who is on TV a lot. But it does cause a problem when the same well-made-up Romney says stuff like this:

"You know I think John Edwards was right. There are two Americas. There is the America where people pay $400 for a haircut and then there is everybody else,"

Much like the Mike Vitter/DC Madam scandal, it's not the action that's the problem, it's the hypocrisy. I wonder if Romney will take the beating that Edwards did about his haircut ...
