Yes, Jay Carney has a beard now

I view it as a physical manifestation of the gravitas he so naturally exudes.

What’s her name?

Oh, wait, you mean the other kind of beard…my bad.

I’d be trying to change my appearance as well.

Her name is Claire Shipman

ITguy on January 6, 2014 at 1:20 PM

Probably bought the hair from Scott Tenorman.

Still looks like a lying wuss to me. I just hope we never have a draft if this and pajama boy are our examples of what men are supposed to be.

Jay al-Carney

Typical of progressive politics: he’s six weeks late for Movember.

The Schaef on January 6, 2014 at 1:52 PM

He’s just hoping people will like him as much as they do Phil Robertson and the rest of the Duck Commander family. I’m sure a beard is all it will take… hahahahahahaha.

fanofamerica on January 6, 2014 at 1:56 PM

He’s no Russel Crowe.

peski on January 6, 2014 at 1:58 PM

That’s not a beard. For most guys that’s simply forgetting to wash your face.

Rocks on January 6, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Oh, wait, you mean the other kind of beard…my bad.

Taking a hard detour, a line similar to this ended up as a throwaway line in a Doctor Who short a few years back (6:34ish):

“Oh, [The Master] just showed up again. Same as ever.”
“Oh no, really? Does he still have that rubbish beard?”
“No, no beard this time. Well, a wife…”

The Schaef on January 6, 2014 at 2:03 PM

He’s no Russel Crowe.

peski on January 6, 2014 at 1:58 PM

Let’s not jump to conclusions: we haven’t heard him sing yet /Les Mis Humor

The Schaef on January 6, 2014 at 2:04 PM

He looks younger.

Kafir on January 6, 2014 at 1:17 PM

Next step for Carney: getting into the witness protection program.

whatcat on January 6, 2014 at 2:06 PM

Don’t I recall that listeners perceive politicians with facial hair to be less honest.

2nd Ammendment Mother on January 6, 2014 at 2:16 PM

Damn near manly as Maddow.

M240H on January 6, 2014 at 2:17 PM

It doesn’t make him look older, smarter or truthful. That about does it for that new look.

Sabercat2 on January 6, 2014 at 2:25 PM

Lets see how long it takes to actually become a beard.

DanMan on January 6, 2014 at 2:41 PM

Punk @ss sissy? Sloppy bland is the new black?

onomo on January 6, 2014 at 2:44 PM

It’s probably too patchy for him to pull a Brian Wilson and use shoe polish to fill it out.

blammm on January 6, 2014 at 2:47 PM

blammm on January 6, 2014 at 2:47 PM

Yeah. My first thought was dust bunnies. He fell asleep under the edge of the bed maybe? But then there’s no way he’d of left the house without looking in the mirror, I don’t care how late he was running…unless… he thought the dust bunnies made him look…outdoorsy?

Good Solid B-Plus on January 6, 2014 at 1:14 PM

Hah!

Othniel on January 6, 2014 at 3:06 PM

Makes him look even more like a vaggina.

CherryBombsBigBrownBeaver on January 6, 2014 at 3:07 PM

Just like the evil Mr. Spock in the alternate universe episode!

Brat on January 6, 2014 at 3:11 PM

He looks younger.

22044 on January 6, 2014 at 2:04 PM

Seriously, I had more of a beard than that when I first tried to grow a scruffy little one back when I was 17 or so.

UltimateBob on January 6, 2014 at 3:11 PM

That “suit” is really just a onesie painted to look like a suit, right?

JeremiahJohnson on January 6, 2014 at 3:12 PM

Now he kind of looks like Rachel Maddow.

OrbeaRider66 on January 6, 2014 at 3:57 PM

ow he kind of looks like Rachel Maddow.

OrbeaRider66 on January 6, 2014 at 3:57 PM

Nah, Maddow’s beard is longer and doesn’t have the patches.

Maddie on January 6, 2014 at 4:29 PM

…he probably has no pubes…he has to grow hair …somewhere!

KOOLAID2 on January 6, 2014 at 8:15 PM

That’s okay he still has his plaid onesies at home, so never fear his sudden onset of testosterone.

txmomof6 on January 6, 2014 at 9:23 PM

Probably as much DNA in that thing as in Lewinsky’s blue party dress.

Demonized on January 6, 2014 at 11:06 PM

Good Lord, I’m shaving mine off tomorrow morning.
