Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton. Yep, with the book and all we re going to be seeing quite a bit of him. Thank goodness. The funny thing is that when I did this with Ronald Reagan s name last week on this page, the spell checker when crazy, either not recognizing his name or freaking out because it was repeated so much. Not so with Bill Clinton. The spell check loves Bill Clinton. And so do I. And all of this leads to just one topic: hair. Yes, hair. Has anyone else noticed that our current president has finally done something about his hair? It all started with the recent unveiling of the presidential portraits of former president Bill Clinton and former first lady Hillary Clinton at the White House, an event at which the president almost appeared to remotely resemble a human being. I know, weird. Yep, little George actually had to be nice to Bill that day, and he did a fairly decent job of it, thanks, I m sure, to his speechwriters. But did you notice his hair? The Bush seems to have done something about, well, the bush. For almost four looooooooong- years, we have had to look at that Chia-head of his over and over and over. Like a Brillo pad. Split ends of surreal proportions. But something has happened. The day he hosted Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, when their portraits were unveiled, his hair was, for once, not sticking out in more directions than Madonna s spiritual life. And if you ask me (which I would hope you would not), it was all because he didn t want to look like a tumbleweed on steroids while standing next to the perfectly coifed Clinton, with that gorgeous shock of white hair atop his gorgeous head. Oh, about to throw up, you Clinton haters? Well, go puke but take a fresh look at Bush s hair. It s almost smooth. I would say that this is the work of his wife Laura, but day by day she is bearing more and more of a resemblance to Jack Nicholson in his role as the Joker in Batman. Bless her heart. She s saddled with that being married to a Texas blueblood, an oxymoron if ever there was one. And speaking of morons, take a look at the hair. He has applied some mousse or something to it. Maybe he finally figured out that the term conditioning is not solely relegated to the torture he allowed of the prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. But now I m getting political and I just don t have time for all that, so here s a brief look at some of what s going on around town this week. At tonight s Sunset Atop the Madison Series party on the rooftop of the Madison Hotel, you can enjoy cocktails and live music by Yes, No, Maybe. There s a 1950s themed Sock Hop at the Arcade at the Arcade Restaurant with food, music, and period dress. And Mary Lou Lord and E.J. Friedman are at the Hi-Tone.
