Are You 21, Govn'r?

The Associated Press reported:

Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire (GREG'-wahr) is taking it as a compliment: She was turned away from a bar in the state capital because she couldn't prove she's of legal age to drink…

Gregoire says the man checking identifications at the door told her she couldn't get in without ID, even when others pointed out she's Washington's governor. So she went home, but her husband, Mike, went in.

The governor tells Seattle's KING-TV she feels complimented the bouncer thought she might be under 21.

Oh, come on Governor, you must be kidding! The bouncer was not complimenting, but expressing a healthy skepticism about politicians, don't you think?

Witness the spat between Paris Hilton and Sen. McCain. Here's the McCain campaign's recent ad featuring Britney Spears and Paris Hilton:

And, here's Ms. Hilton's response:

White hair, black hair, blond hair, what's difference? Better carry an ID to prove that you are of legal age to drink, dude!

  1. I suspect the guy at the door was being profoundly sarcstic and pithy, pointing out the absurdity of State laws infringing private activity. Even it aint so, I hope it is!
