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..........

Is he running for reelection? I’ve always wanted a chariot driver for a congresscritter.

He’s still more sane than Barack Obama who actually believes he’s a good President.

I don’t understand that one, either. It’s racial slang for ‘Asians’.
