Eliza Petrescu on The Eyebrows of John McCain, Barack Obama, and Tim Kaine

Eyebrow Guru Eliza Petrescu Takes on McCain and Obama

If you missed this weekend's broadcast of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!, you missed an odd fusion of beauty and politics. Eyebrow guru Eliza Petrescu, who works on famous arches like those of Madonna and Kim Cattrall, shared her opinion on some political eyebrows. Who knew eyebrows were even being looked at in this election season?

The veepstakes matters a lot, and one potential Obama running mate is Virginia governor Tim Kaine. Unfortunately, his eyebrows are a hot mess. "His eyebrows are definitely too feminine," Eliza explained. "His arch is too high, so I would brush and trim, then I would remove the excess hair between the eyebrows. He doesn't have much, but his eyebrows are too manicured; whoever did it made him look almost like a woman."

Harsh words, and Eliza has even more to say about the presidential candidates' eyebrows. To find out whose brows she prefers,


"To be honest with you, Mr. Obama has perfect eyebrows," Eliza explained, adding that her expertise is non-partisan. "Mr. McCain needs big help. He needs to color his eyebrows; you cannot have half-white and half-brown eyebrows."

This is all for fun, of course; it's not as though anybody will vote based on a candidate's eyebrow shape. (Let's hope not, anyway.)

I may be old-fashioned, but I think notable man-scaping is a sign of narcissism.
