Fmr. Sen. Bayh’s Hair Debacle

Former Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) deserves respect from scribes, a certain reverence from the population at large after serving in the U.S. Senate for 12 years and perhaps a flippin’ hair cut whenever he feels like it. He’s a Fox News Contributor and enough of a Washington big shot, right?

Well, maybe not.

An annoyed Bayh was spotted leaving Randolph Cree Salon at Washington’s Eastern Market.  He hopped into his black Escalade and told his driver that “somebody messed up” before closing the door.  Clearly, Capitol Hill’s “premier” salon had no room for him.

A call to the salon to inquire was met with a polite but insistent refusal to comment. “We have no comment whatsoever,” a female voice replied.

This really burns us up. Don’t they know who he is? Seriously, Tammy Haddad can’t handle this? The price tag on a gentleman’s haircut at the salon: $55.
