Second grader to Michelle Obama: My mom doesn't have her papers

Not the first time that a seven-year-old’s put her on the spot politically. Remember this exchange from Campaign ’08?

I’m posting this partly as a palate cleanser and partly because I know it’ll kick off a round of conspiracy theories about the kid being some sort of plant, which is always fun. Not that I’d put it past Democrats to milk some sympathy for amnesty by using an adorable moppet as a human shield, but “Barack Obama is taking everybody away that doesn’t have papers” doesn’t sound like a DNC-scripted line to me. Although I do relish the thought of Robert Gibbs just out of frame, waving his arms to get the kid’s attention and whispering, “‘Why do Republicans hate my mommy?’ Remember?
