If these Premises are true, then why did I read the following headline on Drudge?
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 a pool reporter from the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES at the scene, the conversation took place INSIDE 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 [or] within 100 feet of any polling place."
In roughneck, downstate NY parlance, it takes someone with a huge case of the ass to possess the first three premises and still manage to squat on the 4th. We are utterly abashed, appalled, flabbergasted.
This is ass that sweeps out the cash register aisle at Super Wal-Mart on Black Friday. This is ass around which other asses orbit. This is ass that defies the laws of physics. This is a Singularity of Ass.
Mrs. Obama, you have managed to burrow underneath even our incredibly low expectations.
