The Mayo Clinic said Monday that U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and is under treatment there for the condition.

Jackson has been hospitalized at the Rochester, Minn., center and absent from Congress since June 10.

He’s been suffering from massive depression and gastrointestinal issues, a likely complication from a risky weight-loss surgery known as a “duodenal switch.”

That corrupt slimeball creep’s like a ping-pong ball in zero gravity, annoying as a squirrel on a slippery birdfeeder pole in the backyard, and as criminal as his old man. I won’t say any more, since b-p is a serious disease.

a treatable condition that affects parts of the brain controlling emotion, thought and drive and is most likely caused by a complex set of genetic and environmental factors.

Genetic and environmental, huh. What say you, papa Jessie? Ship him off to the Palin's for a few weeks and that should fix the emotion, thought and drive. And somehow his gastric bypass from 8 years ago is causing this problem today? While there might be some truth in there, as a whole it doesn't pass the smell test.

He MAY have bipolar disorder;m however, it is possible that he has a co-morbidity with “Imafraidofgoingtojail-itis”. Actually, the whole family should be in prison.

So the kid is a wanna be Sharpton.

He had no problem going to Spain last year when the MOOCH missy was there. I guess he didn’t get what he wanted - some recognition.

It’s years of his father pushing him to be just like him and buying and opening doors for easy entry. He so thought ‘barry’s old seat’ was his. What a downer!!

He kept vacillating between the “cretin” pole and the “insanely stupid” pole.

bi-polar can be controlled with medication and phycological help. The person has to remain treated for the rest of their life. I have never heard of it being caused anything other than genetics. It’s nothing ever to be ashamed of. Most people who are bi polar are quite smart. It is a chemical brain change. They do have to take their medication faithfully and receive doctor help; they should be fine.

That’s it! Off to the Palin Camp - the frontier where you hunt and fish for your own food. No silver plate and others to wait on you. Force to rely on ONEself.

Yes, Bi-polar is serious but he’s been out of the limelight for over two months and has to have the Mayo issue lame reports instead of doing it himself. Uh, no, I don’t think so. He’s either in rehab, a psych ward or similar.

with all of the privacy laws that surround medical information, how is the Mayo clinic releasing this? Did the family authorize the release in order to quell speculation?

It’s not” bi polar” it’s “buy senate seat” disease.

Those voices that he’s hearing in his head belong to the Ethics Committee.

I doubt they should be in politics, because they aren’t guaranteed to be “fine” as you say.

My sister has been diagnosed and treated for decades, seems “fine” most of the time, but is not always “fine” as in when she threatens suicide if slightly upset.

Advising a client to check in for “bipolar” is a classic defense lawyer tactic.Perhaps junior is anticipating the day when this country has a *real* Attorney General.
