I'm Going To Go Ahead And Say "His Bald Scalp"

(Screenshot from Media Matters.)

I don't know why it took me so long to notice George Will's really weird wig, but now that I have, I can't un-see it. Has it always been that obvious, or is it just looking particularly laughable lately? Honestly, this is like the department store sketch from Monty Python.

Looking through recent pictures, this seems to be a new... thing? It kind of freaks me out.

Me too, now that you've pointed it out and we've lost our blissful ignorance.

Yow! Sometimes, one slip is all it takes. I looked at that photo and the spell withered right before my eyes. Here's a nice, hi-res image of the wig in all its glory! Dating back three years!

Well now that that is burned into my corneas.

Isn't there just a peg inserted into the top of his skull that allows him to mix and match depending on occasion and outfit? Looks like on the way out the door, he picked up the Ralph Lauren Picnic in the Hamptons by mistake.

My grandpa wore a toupee. He used to let me brush the glue on and stick it on his head.

I found myself way too close to John McGlaughlin at Eastern Market years ago. He was the color of Boehner and sporting bright red hair; made no sense.
