Why Did Joe Lieberman Grow A Beard?

Sat Jul 23, 2005 2:41 am

I was just surfing channels and landed on CSPAN2. Joe Lieberman is speaking and he seems to have grown his beard out and it looks AWFUL! It's all white.....Anybody have any idea why he did this?

Curiously yours,

To enhance his looks, of course.

Previously he just looked like a smurf. Now he looks like Papa Smurf.

127,000,000 males in the U.S. And a Jewish politician's beard is what you are curious about? I'm not BASHING you. But think about it. Would you have even cared if he was a Gentile?
Happy 2006

Hopefully he doesn't start wearing plaid shirts and doesn't decide to go Unabomber like Algore.

RJpieces,

His mother died about two weeks ago and he is in Mourning, I forget the Hebrew term. I know most Jewish men when they lose a loved one like their Mother will grow beards as a display of their grieving.

This might help,

"Lieberman's beard, a sign of Jewish mourning, draws media coverage

By Doug Chandler

Like the beard grown by his 2000 running mate, former Vice President Al Gore, U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman's new beard is drawing its share of media attention.

But the two gave up shaving for entirely different reasons.

Gore, the Democratic presidential candidate five years ago, grew his beard because he was no longer vying for office and could afford to relax.

Lieberman's beard is connected to the June 26 death of his mother, Marcia Lieberman, and the 30-day period of Jewish mourning known as shloshim, Hebrew for 30."
