THERE ARE BEARDS AND THEN THERE ARE BEARDS

From Talking Points Memo:
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday suggested that Bob Bergdahl, the father of the soldier released from the Taliban, was anti-American and said that he looked like a member of the Taliban...

Kilmeade ... criticized Bergdahl's beard, which he grew in order to mark the time his son was held prisoner.

“Really?” Kilmeade asked. “I mean, he says he was growing his beard because his son was in captivity. Well, your son’s out now. So if you really don't -- no longer look like a member of the Taliban, you don't have to look like a member of the Taliban. Are you out of razors?"
That would be the same Brian Kilmeade who posted this on Facebook last September:

In all fairness, Robertson is a member of the American Taliban, while the father of the POW is a blonde guy...
