Likeable But Stupid

After months of hearing nothing but awesome goodness about Michelle Obama, I honestly never though I’d hear her described as stupid, but that’s exactly what a top Illinois State Board of Elections official did upon hearing the news that Ms. Obama had likely engaged in some illegal electioneering at a polling place.

“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.”

Likeable? You be the judge.

Of course, he’s wrong. As a lawyer married to a lawyer-turned-politician, I think it’s highly likely that Ms. Obama is pretty well versed in the laws surrounding electioneering.

 

As for likeable, well, the jury is out on that one but there are days when I have my doubts.

    Stupid and unlikeable. Don’t care when she became proud of our country….still not buying anything either one of these two (her & Obama) say…
