San Diego Mayor Banned From Hooters

Hooters Sign

No Hooters for you!

Four San Diego area Hooters joints have barred Mayor Bob Filner from entering. The San Diego Mayor is best known for having the creepiest smile ever and sexually harassing more than a dozen women before enrolling himself in a sexual harassment class. But the Hooters girls don’t believe his sex therapy did any good and posted signs outside their restaurants saying: “This establishment recognizes that we all have political differences and we serve people all walks of life. We also believe it is imperative for people to have standards. The Mayor of San Diego will not be served in this establishment. We believe women should be treated with respect.” Hooters believes women should be treated with respect? I don’t know about that, but if Hooters thinks you’re below their standards, you’ve got problems. NBC News

MOnkey ChristMonkey see, Monkey Christ. A year after an elderly Spanish woman totally botched a restoration of a church painting, the “monkey Christ” has become a viral hit and is now a tourist destination of its own. While at first Cecilia Gimenez was horrified that her restoration work became an international laughingstock, the town is now praising her for driving tourism – and admission fees. Officials say more than 40,000 people have come to visit it – raising more than 50,000 euros for charity. BBC News

jesse-jackson-jrJesse Jackson Jr. — disgraced former congressman and son of civil rights icon Rev. Jesse Jackson — has gone the way of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and is off to the big house for 2.5 years. The Illinois Represenative received 30 months of federal prison time for misusing $750,000 in campaign money, while his wife, Sandi, was sentenced to 12 months for tax fraud on Wednesday. Jackson spent his campaign money to fund a lavish, high-flying lifestyle including private school tuition for their children, trips to Costco, expensive clothes and a gold-plated Rolex watch. Not trips to Costco! “I misled the American people, I misled the House of Representatives,” Jackson said, dashing tears from his eyes. “I was wrong and I do not fault anyone.” CNN

VP ResignLooks like governing in a state of emergency proved too much for Egypt’s interim vice president. The VP, Mohamed ElBaradei, resigned from his post following the violent clashes between security forces and protesters and the President’s declaration of a state of emergency. ElBaradei resigned in protest, claiming there could have been a more peaceful solution – i.e one that didn’t include killing hundreds of people. At least one protester was burned alive in his tent. Many others were shot in the head and chest. At least one journalist has been killed as well as a cameraman. 7pm curfew, now in effect. New York Times

BabiesBabies on the mind? Better check your bank account first – they can cost half a million dollars. A new US government report says child-rearing has increased 23% since 1960. The cost of raising a child to 18 today ranges from $200,000-$500,000 – not including college tuition. The culprits? Higher housing costs, healthcare costs, and child care costs. Abortion has never looked better. USA Today
