Fashion Update: Ron Paul Possibly Wearing Eyebrow Wigs

At least he doesn't go around getting mani-pedis all the time, like Newt Gingrich.WHA?? So according to this weird image, it turns out that Dr. Ron Paul is either an alien cyborg whose face began partially melting off under the hot stage lights of the last GOP debate, OR, possibly, he was caught strangely using eyebrow toupees to beef up the facial hair testosterone quotient of his libertarian sex god persona. No pencil thin lady brows here, nosiree! To be fair, these are just some eyebrows we are talking about, whereas Mitt Romney is actually a known entirely fake human.

At any rate, the NYT Fashion & Style section is ON THE CASE:

Seen on television, Mr. Paul appeared to have a second, thinner brow under the one headed south, creating a delicate X over his right eye.

Jesse Benton, a campaign spokesman, insisted that Mr. Paul had been the victim of the elements, namely a heavy pollen season in New Hampshire, and called accusations that he’d been artificially enhancing “stupid” and “insulting.”

“Dr. Paul’s allergies acted up a touch,” Mr. Benton said in an explanation that might raise some, you know, questions.

Best medical explanation from an actual doctor for ” parts of my face started falling off” that we have ever heard! [NYT]

        So, y'all are positive this couldn't be, you know, that Ron has those extra-long hairy brow thingies like Leonid Brezhnev or sump'n, and they all just clumped up and got stuck?

        No, huh? OK, then. Just checking.

    Eyebrow toupees? It does make him look 20 years sillier.

      Yeah. Why didn't he just draw them in like old ladies do?

  • Oblios_Cap

    called accusations that he’d been artificially enhancing “stupid” and “insulting.”

    Much like Ron Paul himself.

    • memzilla

      Ron Paul has not "…been artificially enhancing 'stupid' and 'insulting.'

      He is genuinely 'stupid' and 'insulting.'

        In this sport, it doesn't matter how naturally stupid and insulting you are, you have to enhance to compete! There's a reason why they call it "doping."

    • OzoneTom

      In all fairness to Dr. Paul, at least no one is suggesting that it is a hidden receiver to feed him information as was the case of Bush the Lesser's debate hump.

    How does one sneeze through an eyebrow?

    • justkillmenow

      Is it possible to sneeze so hard an eyebrow falls off? I have sneezed a contact lens out of my eye, but never lost an eyebrow.

      • BaldarTFlagass

        Guess that's better than sneezing so hard you shit your pants.

        • justkillmenow

          Please let that happen during the next debate. To one of them, not me. And I don't even care which one.

          • neiltheblaze

            On the other hand, there's a lot to be said for targeting.

          • Rotundo_

            It probably happened to Walnuts last time, but nobody noticed or cared. Unless a load drops on the stage it will be just another Repub debate. Even if it did drop on live television someone would just claim it was notes slipping off the podium or some stupid stuff like that.

    As a man who has too pluck my too-bushy eyebrows, I wonder why the fuck anyone lucky enough to have thin eyebrows would want to make them look bigger and uglier.

    • http://wonkette.com/ Monsieur_Grumpe

      I'm in the same boat. When I get a hair cut I have them trim the brows other wise it would like wooly bears were eating my face. Is there a market for eyebrow hair?

      • BaldarTFlagass

        Given the nature of this article, I'd have to say "yes."

      I cut Jeffery's hair every other Monday and I trim his brows with tiny little cuticle scissors. I think that when I grow up I want to be Jeffery.

    • AJWjr.

      I have it on good authority this is the reason they let Andy Rooney go from 60 Minutes. Had absolutely nothing to do with him being half past dead, or that nobody under 80 watches their show, nope–it was his eyebrows.

            No no, you senile old goats. Lizzie spotted the apparent shedding of Shelley's eyelashes falling off, thus identifying a potential source for Ron's mysterious bit of fuzz.

            The causal circle was completed by an astute observer who noted, "Like the swallows to Capistrano, [Shelley's eyelashes are] migrating to Ron's eyebrows."

        Hmmm. Mine seems to have predeceased me.

  • proudgrampa

    What in hell do his allergies have to do with a drooping eyebrow??? Spokesperson fail.

        Maybelline and silicone.

      • Rotundo_

        Well, your automatics usually smell like Type F or Dexron, or sometimes like Mercon automatic transmission fluid. Your manual boxes smell like 20W-80 gear lube and get pretty ripe. Oh, we aren't talking about car parts here are we? My bad, I guess they probably smell a whole lot nicer than a manual transmission taken apart does, probably better than an automatic too, especially one that has had the clutches burned out on it.

    This reminds me of the time I had a rogue white eyebrow. It stood out like a freakin' unicorn horn. My task, that morning, was to pluck it. But, having progressive lens I couldn't quite focus on that varmit well enough to grapple it with the tweezers. It probably too 20 minutes to find the correct angle of the head and the right section of my glasses to peer though.

    I finally got it though. It must have been an inch and a half long.

      • Fare la Volpe

        Why did that turn me on?

        • Limeylizzie

          Because when perfect beauty has a flaw it makes it even more alluring?

      That strange character that was part of Jim Garrison's kennedy conspiracy theory? The one with the obvious orange wig and painted on eyebrows?

        Dingding! I'm just sayin', was Ron Paul ever in a Civil Air Patrol unit in Louisiana as a young man?

    This is the most important presidential campaign news since Gennifer Flowers!!eleven!!1</bold>[text]<exclamation>!!!

    • prommie

      Boinking Gennifer Flowers = proof you are a normal, healthy male with appropriate desires. Wearing fake eyebrows = proof you are batshit insane crackpot.

    "We should have a system of economics that is structure, that is organic tools. We do not have it. We are all hanging by our eyebrows from skyhooks economically, just as we are architecturally."

  • Papa_Uniform

    Cut Ron a little slack. He's just trying to look like what he thinks we think he should look like. And, God bless him, he does.

    You know who ELSE brings up Clinton's mistresses whenever their candidate's batshit craziness is brought up?

      All of them, Katie. (sorry)

  • DemonicRage

    The economy is in the tank. The Euro may crash and send Markets tumbling further South, and all we can focus on is whether one of the Republican candidates tried to hide the fact that he has thinning eyebrows. Remember those photos of Mao swimming that turned out to be photoshopped? The Chinese would never have permitted an Imperial Lord to be embarrassed the way that our free press has caused Grandad Ron Paul to have been.

  • chascates

    I read that his son is now replacing Joe Lieberman in the McCain-Graham-Xxxxxx triumvirate (Jobs Through Growth Act). With Joe shuffling off in the sunset the group needs another to thwart the Senate and democracy in general.

  • Goonemeritus

    There are very few senior men that need to augment their eyebrows. The opposite is certainly true for me (without weekly thinning I look like Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev). The only exception I have found is a dude that had a serious mishap while free-basing in the 90's.

      You know Richard Pryor?!

    That pose suggests that he's trying to appear interested in something–anything else other than his eyebrow falling off.

  • Poindexter718

    It's well known that Dr. Paul acquired Friedrich Hayek's eyebrows from a mutual acquaintance (a Viennese prostitute) and dons them for special occassions.

  • Antispandex

    Allergies? The American people expect their President to be able to lie much better than that, Mr Paul.

    Over at the Saloon, they have a nice bit on the CIA's keeping the FBI out of the loop on two fine Saudi lads who would help fly an aeroplane into the Pentagon. They close with a reminder that Mittens' chief adviser on counter-terrorism is the psychodouche Cofer Black, who was the supervisor at the CIA of the folks who worked so hard to keep future 9/11 airplane hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi from getting scooped-up by the FBI.

    If you're gonna take the time to pick out some fake eyebrows and then glue them on to your face why not pick some that at least match the hair on top of your head?
