Obama's adviser Axelrod bets to shave off moustache if 'boss loses in Pennsylvania, Michigan'.
Axelrod's moustache has defined his signature look for nearly 40 years, and he's putting it on the political line.
MSNBC host and former congressman Joe Scarborough countered Axelrod's vow with one of his own, promising to grow a moustache to rival Axelrod's should Obama win Florida or North Carolina.
According to the Washington Post, if Axelrod winds up losing his hair-raising bet, there's a precedent for backing out.
In 2009, Republican Bob Brady (D-Pa.) offered to shave his impressive mane of hair if his beloved Phillies lost to the New York Yankees in the World Series, the report said.
They did, and when he shied away from "paying up," Republican John Hall (D-N.Y.), against whom he'd made the wager, tried to shame him into it, filming a spoof video at the House barbershop, it added. ( ANI )
