Here's the Clean-Shaven David Axelrod You Paid $1 Million For

He looks like a new man. President Obama's campaign guru made good on his promise and shaved off his 40-year-old moustache a couple of bets — the one that sealed the stache's fate was a bet with Morning Joe's Joe and Mika to raise $1 million for his epilepsy charity, Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy.

You did it!$1m plus for slashthestache.com! So I will keep my part of the bargain and surrender the stache at 7:15 on @ Morning_Joe!

Those who donated actually beat the $1 million by $50,000.  Of course it's all facial hair and will grow back, but if you're feeling nostalgic, this tribute will get you through those cold moustache-less nights.
