Best Story of the Week: Micky Dolenz of the Monkees went out for a smoke while dining the other night.  When he got outside he heard a bunch of drunk 20-somethings singing along with a recording of his song “I’m a Believer” at Pat O’Brien’s next door.  Clearly the revelers at Pat O’Brien’s had parents who gave them sufficient musical educations because they obvs recognized Micky and made him pose for photos.

Noise violators punished with an hour of Barry Manilow.

Jailer said he’d let a prisoner go free if he voted for John McCain.  He posted he bail and voted for Barack Obama, natch.

A perfect holiday present for PETA members: A calendar of famous(ish) conservative women dressed in mink.  Mmmmmm Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin in dead animal…
