Now here's a quote.

I must say, I love it when corporate Amerika decides to defend its questionable business model by citing a principle of civil rights, "democracy" or some other convenient Amerikan Democracy™? slogan. If anything underlines the mockery of democracy in the American culture, it is the corporate commodification of the tag lines of equality to justify their neverending quest for the almighty bottom line. Anyway, this was Hooters' eloquent restatement and affirmation of all of the hard work of the women's movement in the United States:

"To Hooters, the women's rights movement is important because it guarantees women have the right to choose their own careers, be it a Supreme Court Justice or Hooters Girl." [source]
Well there you have it folks. Two centuries of struggle and the true equity we have for women is that becoming a Supreme Court Justice is now regarded on the same level as becoming a Hooters Girl. Well, maybe that's not too far from the truth at this point, but nevertheless, you gotta love it.
