Overzealous bouncer turns governor away

It's nice to have a break from serious news and also to realize that I'm not the only one this has happened to. From the Seattle Times:
Gov. Christine Gregoire was turned away from an Olympia bar when she couldn't produce identification to prove she was over 21.
No joke, folks.
Gregoire and her staff had served burgers at the annual Capital Lakefair last weekend and afterward went to the downtown Olympia bar called Hannah's to celebrate. Governor Gregoire did not have her ID with her. The man checking ID at the door said 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.
As the governor told KING5 News, it's best to take something like that as a compliment when it happens.
