For all parents considering sending the fruit of your loins to the University of Illinois for an education, consider this….

The University of Illinois is presenting an ethics in government award to Barack Hussein, which is akin to presenting an award for culinary excellence to Jeffrey Dahmer.

“Obama will receive the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government during a ceremony on Sept. 7, the school and Obama’s office announced Thursday,” according to The Hill.

“Next week, President Obama will offer new thoughts on this moment and what it requires from the American people. He will expand upon several of the themes from his summer address, including that America is at its best when our democracy is inclusive and our citizens are engaged,” Katie Hill, the communications director for Obama, said in a statement.

“He will echo his call to reject the rising strain of authoritarian politics and policies,” she continued. “And he will preview arguments he’ll make this fall, specifically that Americans must not fall victim to our own apathy by refusing to do the most fundamental thing demanded of us as citizens: vote.”

For anyone questioning the integrity and character of Hussein’s prestigious award, consider that previous recipients include John McCain and John Lewis.

Wait. Never mind.
