Romney is making the obligatory trip to Falwell's Liberty College, which after all these years still boasts archaic rules like this one:
"Hair and clothing styles related to a counterculture (as determined by the Student Affairs Deans’ Review Committee) are not acceptable. Hair should be cut in such a way that it will not come over the ears, collar or eyebrows at any time. Ponytails for men are unacceptable."
Given the story of his assault and battery on a fellow high school student, the irony - well, actually this isn't irony. By forcing his fellow student down and cutting his hair, Romney was just asserting his faith, right? These anti-bullying rules - it's all about oppressing Christians!
Here's the story anyway.
