That’s what Tim Echols said in an Athens Banner-Herald column a couple days ago. He also had this to say:
As trivial as this may sound, Thompson is balding, and bald candidates have struggled in attaining the oval office since Dwight D. Eisenhower. You think I am joking. Maybe he can compensate for this unfortunate factor and choose a vice presidential candidate with a lot of hair. Imagine a Thompson/Romney ticket and how that might play. Using the hair theory, the GOP dare not put Giuliani on the ticket with him, and McCain is not much better.
You know who has great hair? Echols’ — and his homeschoolers’ — favorite, Ralph Reed.
I think I’d rather be bald and be ignored by some folks. What do you think?
