At The Heritage Foundation, we aim to get our experts into as many media outlets as possible to help spread the conservative message. But a recent appearance on the Tonight Show wasn’t quite what we had in mind.

On Tuesday’s show, host Jay Leno called up a clip of Heritage regulation expert James Gattuso on Fox News. He then asked the audience: “Is his hair better as a beard?”

Watch the video and judge for yourself:

What has Janes Gattuso’s hair style got to do with anything? Why not ask the same question about Jay Leno – do you think he’d find it amusing?
Going on those late night shows like Saturday Night Live is a waste of time, unless you enjoy being made the butt of their catty jokes.

While it seems trivial, you are always judged in the first 3 seconds by, guess what, the visual. Why have weird hair when there is so much you can do about it, and not give silly people amunition to use against you. I wish it weren’t so, but I think it is. And I am a realist.

I personally feel it was a very inappropriate “joke”
if that is what Jay Leno meant by this. There are too many good things that need to be said. I certainly have lost my respect for Mr. Leno.
