If and when Obama loses, will he hang JJ out to dry or will his Father make a play for a pardon from the one? I say the one will hang him out to dry as Senior one time wanted to cut his nuts off!

“...Sandi Jackson, Jackson’s wife, who steadfastly supports her husband and father of their two children despite public reports of his infidelity two years ago,....”

Wellll yes. His infidelity two years ago would not mean he is not the father of their two children.

Your one-liner reminds me of an old George Carlin routine (Truth or Consequences) where the lady said her husband fell off of the roof and would up in the Mayo Clinic. The punchline was “hell of a bounce”.

Betcha JJJ's wife is also a little antsy. Mrs JJJ is a (gasp) Chicago Alderman. Some of JJJ's financial problems might emanate from all his Congressional "earmarks" that ended up in Mrs JJJ's campaign coffers (/snix).

=====================================

Course, I'm just a really, really nice person. So, of course, I thought it was really, REALLY nice when Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke out WRT JJJ's medical (cough) condition.

================================================

Obama's ex-COS, CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EXPLAINS
"CHICAGO VALUES" wrt the recent Chick-Fil-a controversy......

Mayor Rahm danced into the controversy after Alderman Proco Joe Moreno (1st ward) publicly announced his opposition to Chick-Fil-A opening in his ward.

Mayor Rham chuckled while doing a graceful plie: "It's easy to do business in Chicago when you know 'the rules.' Chick-Fil-A can open in our town as long as it adopts 'Chicago Values.' "

(1) weekly cash pay off to the alderman;

(2) hire six of the alderman's friends who work only random days of the month,

(3) BIG AL from the Mayor's office picks up all cash in brown paper bags at CFA's back door,

(4) Chick Fil A staff trained to shoot 10-12 customers per month,

(5) Any CFA customers actually killed must be registered to vote as Democrats,

(6) $100,00 campaign contribution to Obama,

(7) free sandwiches and watermelon salsa to Jesse Jackson, Jr, who
is "convalescing," b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.

=========================================

"I made Chick-Fil-A promise to serve chicken sandwiches
on a banana leaf w/ watermelon salsa, said Proco Joe Moreno.

There are no polls being done in the Illinois District 2.

JJ2 has several people running against him at least two independent Democrats and a Republican Brian Woodworth

http://www.woodworthforcongress.com/

Yes JJ2 will probably win re-election but the Chicago Tribune has endorsed him.

With a couple of black - independent democrats running this might be a possible pickup

Jackson, who is also being investigated by the Feds, sees his doctor twice a day...

Congressman Jackson, the subject of a Gawker.com report that he was spotted recently having drinks on two nights with two different women at a beer bar in Washington, claims the women were “lobbyists... friends,” according to the source.

Mayo must have a special Democrat Rescue Wing, dedicated to hiding Dem politicians after they’ve disgraced themselves. That’s where one of the many errant Kennedys holed up after crashing his car into a police cruiser in the wee hours of the morning. The Mayo has a special treatment for troubled Democrats that calls for them to hide until the heat’s off.

One reason these guys end up at Mayo ~ is their own homestates don't have comparable treatment facilities due to high levels of litigation, and the DC area is just not private enough ~ always somebody at the hospital who can rat you out ~ (fellow patients of course ~ the staff aren't telling tales eh)

Watch how the Democrat drunks and dopers are always among the first to tell you tort reform isn't needed ~ and they'll suffer the torments of hell to keep anything from happening along those lines ~ meanwhile they pile up the campaign donations from the very lawyers who make them travel to Rochester MN rather than finding the same service in Chicago.

Jackson’s race has a conservative write-in candidate, Anthony Williams. He’s pro-tax cuts, pro-life, and anti-illegal alien. He and I endorsed each other. I’m a write-in candidate in the 7th Dist., where the incumbent is Rep. Danny Davis.

Four months at a mental health facility and I assume he’s drawing a full salary?

Must be nice work ... if you can get it.

It will work....look at the district.

Prediction..JJ wins easily, and then to avoid an investigation, and possible criminal charges, he will resign. The only reason that he didn't resign several months ago, and have his wife run for the seat, is that she's as complicit as he is...and it would come out. So a deal's cut..the House Ethics investigation is dropped, it all gets swept under the rug

So, who will be next??surprise, surprise..

The old man, the mumbler, JJ himself, moves into his son's home in Chicago, for the address, and runs in the special election...
