Michelle Obama Leads By Example in Milwaukee

From the First Lady of Health and Wellness, this is hardly surprising — nobody actually believes she lives on lawn clippings and tree bark, do they?

MILWAUKEE – First lady Michelle Obama thrilled staff and customers when she made a surprise visit to Miss Katie’s Diner on the city’s near west side.

Mrs. Obama met her cousin and her cousin’s daughter for lunch at the restaurant.

Jennifer Laschen waited on their table. “I’ve been doing this for 25, 30 years and I’ve never had such a thrill, such an honor to wait on a first lady in my life,” she said.

Laschen said the first lady ordered a cheeseburger and fries. Mrs. Obama took pictures and signed autographs for the staff at the diner and their customers.

Somebody fetch the BMI calipers! Normally the restaurant employees are forbidden from discussing what the Obamas ate, so the fact that this was allowed to slip out was probably just an attempt to “connect” with us fat, dumb serfs in flyover country.

While on the Chicago swing of her trip, FLOTUS stopped in to vote early, and Drudge reported that she may have violated Illinois law by talking politics at the polling place.

Whether or not that actually happened isn’t known yet, but it did lead Drudge to publish the quote of the day:

A top Ilinois 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.”

Runs in the family.
