The mere thought of shaving his decades-old mustache off has been keeping David Axelrod up at night.

Aw, poor Davy.

Today on “Morning Joe,” Axe kept his promise to Joe Scarborough: He slashed the ‘stache after hitting his $1 million dollar fundraising goal for epilepsy research.

Before:

And after:

If so, we are truly doomed.

The Twitterverse verdict? Not as terrifying as expected:

Progress!

OK, maybe a little horrifying:

Coming soon?

    Dont like Axelrod at all but many kudos for shaving the stache for charity! Would rather he had to do it after Romney win but………

    So now he’s less porn star, more pedophile–is this really a win?

      That started my day with a laugh. Thank you!

      Actually I was thinking that he looks just a little less like Hitler now. Just a little.

  • West_Coast

    Wow. I think this is the longest his head has ever been outside Obamas anal cavity.

    Don’t ever let a good crisis go to waste, like epilepsy.

      You beat me to it. I was wondering if Obama’s butt cheeks got scratched in the process.

        he cold have had a $5 million donation had O released the secrets

      The bad: without the flavor-saver, he will have to put his head up there more often for his fix.

      The good: without the flavor-saver, he will have to put his head up there more often for his fix.

    I prefer the mustache, the less I have to see of his face the better.

    And so what if he raised money for epilepsy? While he’s been running around destroying America, his daughter lives in Misericordia, a non profit with no government contributions according to their Form 990 on Guidestar. With a $55M per year expense, using those vile tax EXEMPTIONS and actually having ~investments like wife-killer Mitt Romney.

    You know, supported by people with MONEY through fund raising. Although resident’s contributions are paid for by medicaid – MORE people’s money the taxpayers’.

    But I’m sure when Obamacare kicks in he’ll transfer her to one of the most excellent central planning sanctioned facilities governed by the IPAB. Considering in 2000 she received a new medication from Australia, Keppra, attributed to essentially saving her life, let’s hope she won’t need a different one that might not be on the “approved” IPAB list.

    Nothing but admiration for taking and keeping the bet to support a worthy cause.
    Now if only he would support a worthy politician….

    MSNBC has to drop the constantly moving, bobbing, and tilting camerawork. Empty-V started this about 20 years ago because it was “young,” “fresh,” and “trendy!” And it was more annoying than anything. Today it just gives people motion sickness.

    Long before I ever laid eyes upon this you-know-what, I closely followed the campaign he waged against Jack Ryan – on behalf of you-know-who – in Illinois. In that Democrat-controlled state it wasn’t really hard for this you-know-what to find a judge who would OK the unsealing of Ryan’s divorce records, and a major newspaper which would print juicy details from those records.

    So, Ryan withdrew his candidacy, and you-know-who was on his way to an easy victory, and seat in the U.S. Senate. Perhaps, as a parting gesture, Ryan could have pulled that you-know-what and you-know-who into the mud with him. Imagine how different things might be today.

    I’m happy that he was able to raise all that money for a great cause…just sad that everyone posting here can’t go further than that…. epilepsy is a very dilapidating condition…maybe put the politics aside for a little while??…..

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Why? Everything Axelrod does is political AND cutthroat. And his life is devoted to politically taking over the lives of 330 MILLION PEOPLE which actually impacts the entire PLANET. Just because he works for a “charitable” cause affecting his daughter is irrelevant.

      • ForTheRepublic

        Come on, Ali. I like Axlerude about as much as the person below me, but we have to recognize that he did a good thing. The left admitted Bush did good with AIDS, let’s be big enough to admit David did good with Epilepsy.

    But wait! I thought that liberal people were set on destroying the country and ruining the lives of everyone. According to this site that it is the case. This man raised a million dollars to fight a disease that affects millions of Americans. Hmm…

      I took the advice you suggested to someone on another thread – vis-a-vis exploring the Internet to find information. What did I discover? Someone you well know starred in a play entitled “Man Boobs.” A play that might well have attracted someone like David Axelrod. It IS a small world after all.

      • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

        I don’t see what that play has to do with Mr. Axelrod. But you don’t have to be coy. I was in a play called “Man Boobs” that was about body issues.

      Axelrod’s fundraising has nothing to do with his politics, he supports epilepsy because of his daughter. The foundation Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) he raised the money for was founded by his wife who is the founding chair on the board.

      His daughter lives in a facility called Misericordia, ironically founded and largely run by CATHOLICS. Meanwhile, yes, he is set on destroying the country and ruining the lives of everyone who doesn’t believe in his central planning big government goal of fundamentally changing America to a socialist country.

      The OTHER irony is Misericordia’s mission statement says, in part, “[each person]…is unique, a gift to us today, a loving and loved person made by God with a purpose in life – no matter how wrapped up in mystery that purpose is.”

      The hypocrisy all around is amazing.
