Well, at least Joe’s haircut has improved since he was first elected to the Senate in 1972 when he was 29.
Joe’s hair seems to have migrated over the last 47 years from the back of his head to the top.
In shocking news, Biden told segregationist centennial Senator Strom Thurmond that he saw him as an inspiration … in his path to a hair transplant. From Politico in 2008:
Along with Biden, the ranks of the senatorial plugged-in included the late Wisconsin Democratic Sen. William Proxmire — who served from 1957 to 1989 — and South Carolina Republican Strom Thurmond, whose fiery orange plugs stayed in until he died in 2003 at the age of 100.
At Thurmond’s 90th birthday party, Biden found a patch of common ground. “When I came to the Senate in ’72, you were 70,” he said. “And I want to tell you I resent any reference to your hair. You have been an inspiration to me in so many ways.”
