Some Idiot Asks Illinois Attn. Gen. Lisa Madigan Three Times If She Can Be a Mom and Be Governor at the Same Time.

Reminded that being governor is a lot more demanding than attorney general, she said, “All of these jobs are very demanding. And people who, unfortunately, have to work three jobs and don’t necessarily have health-care coverage — they’re even in a worse situation. So nobody needs to give any pity on what elected officials have to endure.”

The appropriate rejoinder is “probably a lot easier than being an idiot and a reporter at the same time.”
