US Magazine:

The 72-year-old was recently made TV-ready by makeup artist Tifanie White who's worked on So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol.

McCain paid the 2002 beauty-school grad $5,583.43 for her services, according to the Federal Election Commission.

A cynical person would wonder if this is to hide some of the effects of both age and battles with melanoma. In fact, both Amato, Oliver Willis and Aravosis noted a distinctive droop to McCain's left eye yesterday, which puts me in mind of the BraveNewFilms campaign to get McCain to release his medical records. BNF is asking everyone to send a letter to Friday's debate moderator Jim Lehrer urging him to ask McCain about them.
