Deciding to grow out your facial hair can be a perilous decision for a gentleman in the public eye. Someone's goatee or beard tends to attract more attention than the hair on their head, or the things they wear.
When a man on television decides to go with a new facial 'do, the attention can be overwhelming — and the backlash potentially fierce. Everyone loved Conan's beard, but the less said about Jon's goatee, the better.
All of this is a long-winded way of saying that, for the past few months, we've been noticing something about Glenn Beck: he seems to have decided on a goatee. To be sure, Beck's goatee — which he adopted not long after he departed from Fox News — is not a particularly full one, but it's there nonetheless. Check out these two pictures of Beck sporting his stubble. The first comes from his July trip to Israel. The second comes from a show he did in mid-September. Tell us what you think of his goatee in our poll below!
