Obama, Iran and polygamy

"A bill that would allow Iranian men to take additional wives without the consent of their first wife has angered women and the country's top justice official, who say it would undermine women's rights and could be a government attempt to more deeply enshrine its strict Islamic interpretation into law."

We'd be in a better position to oppose this action if Obama wasn't the first monogamist in this paternal line.

(The "grandmother" in Africa holding the chicken in those pictures during the primaries? That was one of his grandfather's junior wives. Obama's mother? His father already had a wife in Africa when they married. His brothers in Africa? They're all the children of his father's other wives.)
