Does asterisk (*) selector affect performance?

Hi,

I have built a user style for Facebook. There are 67 instances of the same code: border-color: #455770 !important. I'm considering putting a single instance of this into * { }, it would chop off 4 kB (about 10%) off the code.

Would this slow down the style loading time considerably?
And which one is worse? Repeating the same styling command 67 times for avoiding usage of *, or using * instead of filtered formatting?

Remark:

Facebook Like button and Fly Out getting cut off!

The theme: Imbalance2 by WpShower

Hello folks,

On my article pages there is a facebook like and twitter button hard coded into the theme. I have set a zoom: 80% in #body in the CSS. This is causing both social buttons and the facebook flyout to get cut off pretty bad. I have tried adding some overflow: visibles both in browser with Firebug Lite and in Style.css, no luck yet. Here are some screenshots to give you an idea of what i'm talking about.
