:laughing: This poor girl is in way over her head.

Fast Food For FLOTUS.

President Obama often uses a "Don't tell Michelle" line when he travels on the road and eats fast food.

But the first lady — known for her healthful eating initiatives — had her own fast-food moment while on the road in Milwaukee on Wednesday. Michelle Obama stopped at Miss Katie's Diner and had a cheeseburger and fries, according to TMJ4, a local NBC affiliate.

She dined with her cousin and her cousin's daughter and posed for pictures with the restaurant's staff and customers.

More of the "for thee, not me" elitist action...

I don't find that to be a big deal, even health freaks get the urge to eat a burger every now and then. I do however find this to be more disturbing:

First lady Michelle Obama appears to have violated Illinois law -- when she engaged in political discussion at a polling place!

The drama began after Mrs. Obama stopped off at the Martin Luther King Center on the south side of Chicago to cast an early vote.

After finishing at the machine, Obama went back to the desk and handed in her voting key.

She let voters including electrician Dennis Campbell, 56, take some photos.

"She was telling me how important it was to vote to keep her husband's agenda going," Campbell said.

According to the pool reporter at the scene, the conversation took place IN the voting center not far from the booths.

Illinois state law -- Sec. 17-29 (a) -- states: "No judge of election, pollwatcher, or other person shall, at any primary or election, do any electioneering or soliciting of votes or engage in any political discussion within any polling place, within 100 feet of any polling place."

A top Ilinois State Board of Elections official tells the DRUDGE REPORT how Mrs. Obama may have simply been ignorant of the law and thus violated it unintentionally.

"You kind of have to drop the standard for the first lady, right?" the official explained late Thursday. "I mean, she's pretty well liked and probably doesn't know what she's doing."

WHITE HOUSE DEFENDS ELECTIONEERING

When questioned about the brazen nature of Mrs. Obama's campaigning, press secretary Robert Gibbs defended the action.

"I don't think it would be much to imagine, the First Lady might support her husband's agenda," Gibbs smiled.

I like this:

"I mean, she's pretty well liked and probably doesn't know what she's doing."

So laws do not apply. :laughing:

How many times have we seen a judge throw the book at someone, even for a speeding ticket, using this line, "Ignorance of the law is no excuse."

So, why then, doesn't it apply here?

:rolling: That was a good one, "she might have just been ignorant of the law". No ****, a constitutional lawyer's, lawyer-wife, is ignorant of the most basic election laws? :rolling:

She is ignorant all right.. I will 100% agree. If anyone believes she did not know the law, you can officially count yourself as someone who is completely wasting oxygen on this planet.
