VIDEO: On December 7th David Axelrod will shave off his mustache live on "Morning Joe"

Back in October, senior Team Obama adviser David Axelrod said, “I will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states” referring to the swing states of Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. He won that bet and kept his 'stache.

However, per the Washington Post, David Axelrod said he’d still shave his mustache off if the “Morning Joe” crew raised $1 million for epilepsy research. Guess what Joe Scarborough did through a fundraiser in Boston and donations on SlashtheStache.com?

Yup.

And that's the bald-faced truth.

I bet my friend's mustache that Axelrod will continue to be fully mustached:

“I will come on ‘Morning Joe,’ and I will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states." [Michigan, Minnesota or Pennsylvania]

Beats eating your hat.

Progressive Campaign Challenge: Lose Weight, or Donate to Mitt Romney

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

You'd have to be very vocal about the diet, and make sure you tell people who will hold you to it. Not a bad idea.

Akash Jayaprakash had been looking for the motivation to lose weight and get fit when an Internet forum he belonged to, SomethingAwful.com, suggested a way. Pick a specific goal, the forum suggested, and if you don't meet it, punish yourself with something awful. Some forum users chose the punishment of posting embarrassing photos.

Jayaprakash, who works at a progressive tech company called SalsaLabs in D.C., chose the punishment of donating to GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

"I thought, 'What would really turn my stomach?' Something I really disagree with," he says. "My bet is to lose 10 pounds within two months, and also run a 5k in October. If not, I have to donate $250 to Romney."

Jayaprakash is a registered Democrat who follows politics closely and says he has long been unhappy with the Romney campaign. He is also a Mormon who doesn't like when people assume he'll support Romney.
