Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told reporters today that he believes Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) needs to explain to voters what kind of ailment he is suffering from “soon.”

“As a public official though, there reaches a point when you have a responsibility to tell people what you’re facing and how things are going. Sen. Kirk has done that, and I think Congressman Jackson will face that, too,” Durbin told reporters in Chicago, according to a transcript provided by his office.

Place your bets! Is it addiction? A nervous breakdown because he’s about to be indicted for corruption? Or did his wife find out about his affair and beat him senseless?

One of the symptoms of the last stage of syphilis is inability to tell what one’s suffering from!

But it is not like the Democrats will lose JJJr seat or Nancy Pelosi needs his vote to be Speaker in January (HUH!), or Dem turnout in his district will mean anything to Obama winning Illinois.

I'm no doctor, but seems to me the last time I herd him speak it was obvious he was suffering from a case of stupid.

Sadly, there is no cure.

“beat him senseless”

There’s a huge underlying assumption lying there without any supporting evidence.....

He’s alerigic to grand juries, breaks out in hives when he sees a subpeona and is positively phobic about the inside of a court room.
