Quote of the Day: "She probably doesn't know what she's doing"

Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama...                  Image via Wikipedia
A top Illinois State Board of Elections official tells the DRUDGE REPORT that Mrs. Obama -- a Harvard-educated lawyer -- 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." 
You have to drop the standard?  What does this mean? Is she above the law (because she's the FL), or below it (because she's ignorant)?

Harvard-educated and doesn't know an elementary fact about voting law?

That's rule #1 in any election here - no politicking in the building where you vote; and only signs at the entrances.

Absolutely. Part of our British heritage.

Plus, it's just plain bad form to presume that someone is going to vote for your guy because of their skin colour -- if that's what it was.

She doesn't know, she got into law school because she is... (real conservative)

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
