Just how wacky do you have to be to feel at home in today’s Democrat Party? Jesse Jackson Jr. provides an indication:
Frank Coconate, a former Jackson aide who helped him explore the possibility of running for Chicago mayor in 2006, told the Washington Post: ‘I really thought he had a problem with reality.
‘He’d get in his own little world.’
Coconate, who is no longer on speaking terms with Jackson, told the paper that the congressman bragged that he had been a chariot driver in his former life.
Attorney and political adviser Frank Avila Jr added that Jackson would practice martial arts routines while naked at the Turkish bath he frequented.
At least he’s trying to get help…
[Junior] took a medical leave of absence from his congressional duties on June 10 to combat depression.
He spent time at a clinic in Arizona, then moved to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, which issued a statement revealing that Jackson was being treated for bipolar disorder.
Although he returned to his Washington home last month, he has not been actively involved in his own re-election campaign.
Almost as essential to being a Democrat as kookiness is corruption. A party built upon thievery, coercion, and degeneracy requires a certain moral type. Again Jackass Jr. fits right in. He was under FBI investigation for his involvement in the sale of BHO’s Senate seat, and may be indicted before the coming election for spending campaign funds to decorate his apartment.
None of this will have any effect on his reelection. He represents Southside Chicago, the same region that spawned the political career of the Moonbat Messiah. There is no chance he will lose.
