    "Despite all his troubles, Jackson still managed to win re-election in a landslide earlier this month"

    Amazing-
    He must've learned from Marion Barry, Ray Nagin and Kwame Kilpatrick.

    Right last name + Right color = re-election.

    If a vote was taken today, he probably would be re-elected again. .

    Wow, ABC 'news' is so nice to Dems:
    "Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., the embattled Democrat from Illinois who has been on medical leave from Capitol Hill for months undergoing treatment for bipolar disorder, resigned from the House of Representatives Wednesday. "

    How would this had read if the guy had an 'R' after his name? :upeyes:

    Yeah, I just don't get why those Scots-Irish and Norwegians vote in one huge block like that.
