weekly standard ^ | 10/16 | Weekly Standard

Posted on 10/16/2012 8:20:10 AM PDT by RummyChick

Via Sean Higgins, the Washington Post has a doozy of a story this morning about the travails of Jesse Jackson Jr. who is battling accusations of corruption as well as dealing with issues related to mental illness. While the Post's article carries a colorless headline, the revelations contained within are likely to raise some eyebrows:

Would it be tactless to say that the wheels have fallen off Jesse’s chariot?

Ya got a movie for this one??
“Coconate said. “I really thought he had a problem with reality,” Coconate said. “He’d get in his own little world. He’d come out with outlandish things.” At one of Jackson’s hangouts — a Turkish bath — he’d prance naked, demonstrating martial arts moves, while the others stayed wrapped in towels, said Frank Avila Jr., a former supporter who is a Democratic operative.”

Unless I see a video of him dressed in a toga and trying to ride something, I’m going to call BS on this. I don’t believe he thought he was in an alternate universe, he was depressed because of the federal investigation that could see him get 5 years in prison.

That I can believe.

LMAO! This reminds me of the ‘Afrocentric’ crap that really got going in the 70’s. Thinking they were descendants of the Egyptian Pharaohs.

This is all fake put-on crap. He knew he was being investigated for corruption. He’s just trying to avoid prosecution by pretending to be mentally ill, and unfit to stand trial. He sure wasn’t mentally ill when he was trying to get Blago to appoint him Senator from Illinois..........

Long ago, JJ Jr. proved himself a nutcase when he said Obama’s election warranted a new chapter in the Bible.

Is he running for reelection?

Well, he's on the ballot. According to an article I read last night, he's done squat (campaign-wise) since he won the primary back in the Spring (iirc).

If he actually has BiPolar (or worse, Schizoaffective disorder like my son), then well, maybe it would be just a bit.

If the WaPo article is correct it sounds like he has had some sort of psychotic break. When my son had his first such break a few years ago, he had burst into the house one night in a panic, convinced absolutely that every car that was around him on the hiway was a terrorist trying to kill him. At the time, we didn't understand what we were witnessing, but now, thanks to our association with NAMI, we do understand it.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am now the coordinator for my state for the NAMI Family-to-Family education program - a 12 week course for families who have loved ones diagnosed with serious brain disorders.

I am no fan of Jessie Jackson Jr., but I would not wish a serious brain disorder like BiPolar on anyone - not even him.

I am willing to bet JJJr does have some mental health issues, but so what? Life can be depressing and overwhelming for everybody at times and almost everybody has weight issues, too. This delusional stuff is, I'll bet, just a way to dodge responsibility for various scandals.
