"WaPo Dept. of Burying the Lede: Jesse Jackson Jr. thought he was reincarnated chariot driver."

Hmmm.

Maybe WaPo thinks it's fakery, this evidence of mental illness that's being dished out.

Guess how mentally ill Jesse Jackson Jr. is:

I know you love to point out comments on other sites (that are libtard) look at those on whatever that site is.

Man, I know they are all mobys, natch.

I love the spearchucker comment-delish.

tits.

What Turkish Bath was he in walking around naked and doing karate chops-totally hot.

You know his hog was flapping up and down doing haiku or hi-ya in those baths.

Since he lost the weight he is a decent piece of chocolate. When he was fatty, too much chocolate.

The story would be a million times better if he was having fag sex in those Turkish baths though-but Turkish Bath's in the U.S. are very strict about no jerky jerky.

chickelit said...

At one of Jackson’s hangouts — a Turkish bath — he’d prance naked, demonstrating martial arts moves, while the others stayed wrapped in towels,..

Did he practice towel-snapping with Rahmses Emmanuel?

Smilin' Jack said...

Not insanity, just lamely pretentious grandiosity. He's cribbing from the "Patton" scene at Carthage, just like Obama cribbed the "the trick is not minding that it hurts" bit from "Lawrence of Arabia." Politicians know most voters aren't literate enough to recognize plagiarism.

Amartel said...

"First" and "Stupid," simultaneously.
So congratulations on that. Cedarford beclowns himself yet again.

To the topic, legacy media like the WaPo has covered itself in shit for so long that nothing it reports or implies in it's reporting can be trusted anymore.
Is this guy faking a mental illness to hide from the law or is he really a sick man?
Is the WaPo trying to win back some measure of credibility by throwing a lost progressive cause under the bus?

Who's faking? Jesse Jackson Jr. or the Washington Post or BOTH?

Here come the parlour psychologists and people who like to jape at famous people with mental illness.

Maguro said...

Eh, probably just a ploy to escape prosecution.

It'll probably work.

Phaeton also thought he could drive a chariot.

Reminds me of Vincent 'The Chin' Gigante.

ricpic said...

Maybe the chariot driver delusion isn't so far fetched considering the number of blacks who give their sons Roman names: Marcus, Lucius and Julius come to mind.

Guess how mentally ill Jesse Jackson Jr. is:

4) Too ill to be re-elected?

Nah. Not in a safe district like his. Alternately, bet he could get serious money for anointing a successor if he'd rather.

bagoh20 said...

He was heard asking: "What the hell, did my dad say?"

FleetUSA said...

He's very sane, just thinking he needs to do whatever it takes to stay in office.

Hagar said...

Whatever Jesse Jr.'s trouble is, it ought to receive more attention.
He has been out of commission for rather a long time now, and the infighting in Chicagoland must be ferocious.
The Block Caucus in Congress don't have too many young leaders either, so his dropping out is going to have reprcussions theree too.

Maguro said...

Read the WaPo article and, apart from the chariot thing, which is hearsay from a former advisor, he doesn't seem much different from your typical Chicago pol. Sure, he's crooked and completely full of himself, but so are the rest of them.

Are you not entertained?

Funny how the "mental illness' manifested itself the closer the criminal investigation got.

It's not a coincidence the series ,"Shameless", is set in Chicago.

Or, Jackson could be a prophet; his visons inspired by God. "[A] prophet has no honor in his own country." John 4:44, KJV

Well, he was a "Greek chariot rider".

BTW, I thought the Greeks and the Turks hated each other, "but they're all a bunch of jerks, so I...

Piss on the Wall

Well the Yanks hate the Reds
And the Greeks hate the Turks
I really hate to say it
But they're all a bunch of jerks
Seems like everybody's shakin'
Cause the big one's 'bout to fall
I'm just tryin' to hold it steady while I
Piss on the wall

Where's the

"He's as sane as any other person but we're just noticing how crazy HE is."

option? Lots of people that are otherwise sane have screwball-insano ideas. For example, I've even known people that thought politicians gave a shit about us little people!

Blue@9 said...

And yet this revelation moves him up to 2nd or 3rd most sane Democratic congressman.

David said...

The Chariot Drive thing is nothing recent. He's been mentioning it for years. What's new is that he was driver for General Patton.

David said...

Cedarford, it's "doan" not "don't." Among other errors in your pathetic attempt at dialect.

If you've ever met or heard Jesse Jr., he doesn't do dialect. Unless he feels like it.

A black person saying this in dialect would likely say "Dat apple doan fall fah." Note the economy of expression in making the point. Something you might try.

You can't even act like an asshole correctly.

AndyN said...

He belongs to a party in which it's not unheard of for politicians to believe that taking $0.70 out of the economy and borrowing $0.30 from future generations will create $1.20-1.30 in economic activity, that livestock flatulence has more impact on the earth's climate than changes in activity on that big flaming ball of gas at the center of the solar system, that a breathing human in the arms of a delivery room nurse is a fetus, and that acting non-threatening will make people who tell you they hate you less likely to attack you. "I was a Roman chariot driver in a previous life" may or may not be the most bizarre delusion held by a Democratic politician, but it's certainly one of the least dangerous.

Blue@9 said...

Which is the more insane assertion?

a) Obamacare will save Medicare and keep it solvent.

b) I'm a reincarnated chariot driver.


Jackson's belief sounds crazy, but in his defense it's not something that can be disproved. Pelosi, on the other hand, is verifiably insane.

William said...

The other article linked to on Drudge points out that Jackson is favored to win re-election. Wow. What does it take for a connected pol to lose an election in Chicago?

chuck said...

He's like Patton, except Patton preferred soldiering over driving chariots.

So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

So forever in the future,
Shall I battle as of yore,
Dying to be born a fighter,
But to die again, once more.

The ashole in this is Jesse Jackson Jr, just as corrupt as his daddy, pulling the mental illness excuse as the criminal investigation got closer and closer.

And you, for being a PC asshole.

Rich Rostrom said...

Believing in reincarnation and past lives is not mental illness. Mostly it's foolishness. Lots of people have "memories" of being someone famous or in the entourage of someone famous. Hardly anyone has "memories" of being a poor peasant in a tiny village - which almost everyone was.

But it's foolishness that some fairly capable people have indulged in. As noted above, General George S. Patton thought he had been a Roman and French soldier in past lives.

JJjr may be all messed up, but this isn't evidence of it.

MadisonMan said...

Will he be re-elected? That's an interesting question.

Death.

No! Wait. Stroeger was deaad when he was reelected.
If you're connected?
Nothing short of turning Republican.
