    Subject: Replacing Michelle

    At the top right hand corner of Page 17 of the New York Post of January
    24th, 2009, was a short column entitled "Replacing Michelle" in the
    National Review "The Week" column. Here it is, word for word, as it
    appeared two days ago......

    "... Some employees are simply irreplaceable. Take Michelle Obama:

    The University of Chicago Medical center hired her in 2002 to run "programs
    for community relations, neighborhood outreach, volunteer recruitment,
    staff diversity and minority contracting."
    In 2005 the hospital raised her salary from $120,000 to $317,000 -
    nearly twice what her husband made as a Senator.
    Oh did we mention that her husband had just become a US Senator? He sure
    had. Requested a $1 Million earmark for the UC Medical Center, in fact.
    Way to network Michelle!
    But now that Mrs Obama has resigned, the hospital says her position will
    remain unfilled. How can that be, if the work she did was vital enough
    to be worth $317,000?
    We can think of only one explanation: Senator Roland Burris's wife
    wasn't interested.

    Is this true? Snopes have anything to say about this?
