    Here's a story that you probably haven't heard...

    Michelle Obama's salary increased from $121,000 to $317,000 shortly after Barack became a US Senator... I'm sure it was just a coincidence and had nothing to do with the fact that Obama Requested a $1 Million earmark For Construction Of A New Hospital Pavilion At The University Of Chicago.

    How is that "Change"?

    Hospital officials say Obama's wife deserved big raise - On Deadline - USATODAY.com

    Sweet scoop: Obama, after initial refusal, releases all earmark requests. Read them here. UPDATES - Lynn Sweet

    They like women, and particulary First Ladies, to stay in the kitchen and bake cookies.


    There's something about educated, powerful women that scares the shit out of little sissy boy conservatives.

    does no one on the left find it odd that she received a substantial salary increase on the heals of a succesful pork move by her husband.....
