It’s not what you know, it’s who you know – or who you’re married to.

Michelle Obama did a little bit of politicking inside a Chicago polling location, a violation of Illinois law.

Might have been a  goof or a slip – nothing intentional.  But then along comes a Board of Elections official for the state of Illinois.

You kind of have to drop the standard for the first lady, right?

Well, while we’re at it, let’s toss out the rest of the laws for the state and the country.  It’s a slippery slope you’re on there, Mr. Board of Elections official.  Pretty soon you’ll be approving of her making a hundred thousand dollars on a thousand-dollar investment, or saying it doesn’t matter about her hubby’s birth certificate.

Now that’s a shovel-ready situation!
