Political Memes #3 - The Most Interesting Man In The World

Today's post started out as a simple hômage to the Most Interesting Man In The World meme but soon became a reflection on the rôle of facial hair in modern politics. Think for a moment, how many current politicians with beards do you know? The only members of Congress Suciô could name with any facial hair are Henry Waxman and Charlie Rangel. Even in the past, when mustaches and beards were far more fashionable, candidates had to sacrifice the fungus to get elected.


Hitler before his Brazilian: would you vote for this man?

So, if there are no bearded politicians, how about a bearded political appointee? Which brings us to Ben Bernanke - the Chairman of the Federal Reserve and possibly The Most Boring Man in the World.


Boring Ben Bernanke.

  3. Haha, I just got into the foreign exchange market. Saving that Ben Bernanke image because that's the smug face I make when I bet against the USD.

  4. Image advisors argue that if you wear a beard, people think you are trying to hide something, which seems like a silly argument. It's the guys that shave everyday who are trying to hide something. They are trying to hide the fact that they have hair on their face.

  5. I really wish politicians would start rocking some facial hair again. Carter had sideburns but that didn't turn out so well.

  7. Hmm i think facial hair was part of the fashion and used to make a statement. The evolution of society made facial hair so scarce

  16. aside: you don't list a contact or email on your profile. I am really interested in learning how you are able to embed links, photos, etc., onto other comment pages. Email me through my contact page, or post a tutorial for all to see on your home page. I'm sure a lot of others would like to learn the technique as well.
