Cultivating ‘The Look’

Make no mistake about it. Ahmadinejad is as concerned about his appearance as any other human being who has access to a mirror. Why would he always look the same, if not deliberately?

What is it with the scruffy beard and short, unkempt hair? Who is he trying to appeal to?

Is the beard his attempt to appeal to Islamic fundamentalists and the short hair an attempt to appeal to the West?

I’m curious to know your take, because this guy does not exude “class” (or “classy”) in anyway I’ve come to know it, despite his expensive suits.
