Bad Hair Days on Meet the Press

Is it just me, or do an inordinate number of guests who visit the Church of Russert on Sunday mornings have really bad fake hair?

The night before, the cast of Saturday Night Live appears to transforms effortlessly from character to character flaunting completely different hair dos in the same one-hour and they all look so real. I can’t help but wonder how the hair looks as though it’s permeating directly from the scalp.

But on Meet the Press, it’s difficult to concentrate on what a newsmakers has to say when you’re totally perplexed by how anyone in their right mind could let them go on national television with what so clearly resembles a rug on their head.

Meet the Press and SNL are both NBC shows, both produced on the East Coast. Why not just bring the same wig-a-meisters from behind the scenes at SNL inside the beltway Sunday mornings? Ahhh, the answers are all too simple.

What if one party got better wigs than the other? What if bias became transparent by the quality of the wig job Meet the Press provided? And what if the wigs got so popular that politicians started stealing the make-up artists for their own political campaigns?

My prediction is it’s only a matter of time until Washington starts using the same Hollywood trickery.
