Let Us Now Praise Fabulous Hairdos

There's a sensational, until now unrecognized, fabulous bouffant shaking up politics in Germany. This is the kind of hairdo I like to see on politicians. Do you want to see a closer view? Oooh, so do I:



This is clearly a hairdo deserving of more than a passing glance. What marvelous heights it reaches! It's reaching for the stars! We need more structural information, so let's consult a rear (Not the butt, LOLZ! The back of the hairdo!) view:



Some meanypants may sling around hurtful words like antiquated or Texan to describe this sassy hair bubble, but I prefer classic, thank you very much. You recognize it, don't you? It's the Tippi:



Oh, right! And the lady who hosts the hairdo? She's a German politician rebel or something. Interesting! Kinda! Not really! :(

As much fun as we've had over the past 7 years re: Condi's hair (thanks Princess), I have vowed today to never criticize Condi's hair, ever again, after viewing this hairdo.

I'm so totally blown away by the manner in which she looks like she just rolled out of bed with that hair. It's truly amazing!

It reminds me of the excitement in my 1960's Wichita household when my mother finally arrived at a "standing appointment" with Jean, the wizardess at the local beauty shop. We were all so proud that we craved entrees crafted with Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup for weeks!

Did not know they had double-wides in Germany.

Loved the Agee reference.

Please amend your use of "Texan" to be preceeded by the word "Dallas."
Those high falutin' Dallas bitches cain't get their hair high enough.
And please do not be tempted to drag Ann Richards into the fray. Her hair was high to disguise her gigantic brain.
Love ya, mean it.

The hair is to die for, but she's kinda got the bad Condi skin....

The hair is Tippical, yes. But that grey suit is pure Madeleine Elster.

I cannot even believe there are two Wichita natives reading this blog. And my mother was actually named Dorothy. Her hairdresser was Melva, though. And her hair was never as good as this German fabunaut's.

Dimples the size of the Grand Canyon!

Yes, this frau has it all.

Sorry for being rude and crude, but does the third photograph suggest that this strangely-haired German lady, with her derriere as quaint as her face, engages in some form of a--l sex, or perhaps, I may so write, that she is -- at the risk of suggesting something about her physical inner movements that dreadfully simplifies her personality -- a victim of a peculiar type of central European constipation?

As for me, I think that's less the Tippi than the Ann B. Davis. Whatever it is, it's high and I like it.

Andrea Ypsilanti? I'm still stuck on the fact that Germany has a politician named after a town in Michigan.

Bavaria truly is Germany's Texas!

Dear Pony,
I'm sure Ms Ypsilanti is a swell old gal, but I am tired of looking at her. Please make this entry move quickly into the archives.
Thank you, sweetie-pie.

She looks like she just stepped off of the screen of Horton Here's a Who! And I used to live in Ypsilanti!
