I'm 27, but developing a grey patch/streak. If this continues, I'll be an executive in no time.

It also helps if you pair it with dreamy blue eyes.

To be a lobbyist?  Sure grey hair helps.

A moral grey area the size of Guam coupled with a blackened and shriveled soul also doesn't hurt.

There is ageism in any aspect of the government and related industries.

They get paid more and paid more attention, whether they actually execute or not.
There is quite of bit of condescension.

If you look older, then your arguments are noted better...and you relate to the cliques better.

Problem is, I don't want to look older.  (some vanity on my part, plus it's helpful for dating)

I have a young face, but when I let my beard and 'stache grow in...it is peppered and/or white.
And there is a difference.

For my recent position, I grew it in for about a month, since I was new...let them know I was "older",
then I shaved having established the mindset...and now I go back to looking younger.

Politicians, Lawyers, Military and so on...the older, supposedly the more credit.
Even if you run circles around them and make better calls.

So do the K Street boys serve aged cognac and aged hookers with walkers and megaphones.

Never heard hookers screaming all night on the sidewalk below until that bad K Street hotel room on the 10th floor. You know the one two blocks from the convention center.

Also counts in the clergy.  My dad originally grew out his beard so that people would take him seriously as a minister.

He kept it because post-clergy he went to work for the government.

Shaving the beard eventually made him look ten years younger, but by then he was in his 50s and it wasn't a big deal.

I plan to keep my beard around for at least that long.

I saw a guy today that had gray only around his bald spot on the back of his head.  It was like he had a gray halo.

I think America:the Book described the perfect politician as having "Flecks of gray - enough to show age and wisdom without looking 'Medi-cary.'"

Does this also count if the person is a woman?

Grifters gotta grift. Corruption can be had at a young age by just adding water, but deep corruption needs time to ferment, to mature. You have to let it age. You'll know the soul is black and the heart rendered to jerky by the silvering of the hair. Then it's time to truly exploit.

/Politico? Interesting tag? Really? How many times a day do those morans have to wipe the frothy sweat...er, DC humidity....er, whatever from their upper lips....
