    Politico.com recently made hay out of John Edwards spending $400 on a haircut. When they recruited questions for their upcoming GOP “debate,” I submitted the following: “How much did you pay for your last haircut? Evidently this is important information that voters need to know.” The snark appears to have gone right over politico.com’s collective heads:

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    One or more of the questions you submitted to Politico.com’s Presidential Debate Web Round has been selected as a possible finalist and may be asked of a GOP presidential candidate during the May 3 debate, televised on MSNBC.

    We would like to include a name, city and state with each question, although you are free to keep this information private if you wish. If you would like to share your name and location, please email them to this address before Thursday, May 3.

    We appreciate your participation and look forward to the debate!

    Web Producer

    Yours may be one of the best questions they’ve received. Who knows? 🙂

    Can we do a follow-up question, something like “How many planes were delayed while you got your last haircut?”

    I also want to know how much electricity each politician uses and what kind of cars they own. This is vital to our nation’s security!
