David Axelrod Will Shave Off His Mustache On Morning Joe Next Week

Once upon a time, Obama adviser David Axelrod made a bet with MSNBC host Joe Scarborough. The stakes were high: Axelrod’s mustache.

If the president didn’t win Minnesota, Michigan or Pennsylvania, Axelrod said he’d shave his mustache of 40 years. Scarborough offered that he’d grow one should Obama win North Carolina or Florida.

Later, Axelrod offered a different deal: if donors who give to his “Slash the ‘Stache” drive on raise at least $1 million, he’ll shave off his mustache.

Looks like that promise is materializing. “David says he’s going to come on our show on December 7th, a day which will live in infamy, and cut his mustache,” Scarborough said on Thursday’s Morning Joe.

Scarborough’s remarks below, via MSNBC:
