Two Pols Shave Their Heads for Cancer

The Republican National Committee and Democratic Nation Committee can’t agree on much, but they both agree that cancer is bad and children’s cancer is god-awful.

Before the 2012 election, RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer and the DNC Communications Director Brad Woodhouse were so certain their candidate would carry the day that they bet on it. Loser would have to shave his head on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos.

Spicer lost the bet, but then he teamed up with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to help fight childhood cancer.

“As it turns out, I won’t be shaving alone,” Spicer says on his St. Baldrick’s Foundation donation page. It seems Woodhouse hates cancer more than he likes winning things, so he is shaving his head, too.

ABC’s Jonathan Karl will be shaving both of the communication boys Sunday morning. In the meantime, donate money for Spicer here and Woodhouse here.

And because this is still politics, HOH would like to point out that Republican Spicer is schooling Democrat Woodhouse in raising money. As of the time this post was filed, Spicer was $900 ahead of Woodhouse and just $450 from reaching his fundraising goal.

Woodhouse has raised $150 … so far. What was that about Democratic micro-fundraising prowess?

Take that, cancer!
