This reminds me of that old television game show, Queen for a Day, on which women would tell their sob stories, and whomever told the saddest would win a bunch of prizes.

He can always get a job in Hollywood. Come on, be real...very scripted.

I somehow seem to believe Rep.Jesse Jackson Jr.
But want I needed him to say is that he never spoke to blagojevich at any time about buying or asking for the position in a corupt way, nor any one from his camp. This is and all time low, no matter what the position maybe, ONLY surely by merit is acceptable,They need to be the real deal to serve in that position. Stay in the Fight Rep Jackson.

IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT, SOME ARE TRYING TO DO WHAT
IS IN YOUR BEST INTEREST, BUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING
IS IN THEIR BEST INTEREST, AND THAT IS SAD!
AMERICA DON'T CONFUSE THIS MAN WITH ANY OTHER,
PLEASE GIVE THIS MAN AND HIS FAMILY, HIS WIFE AND
YOUNGSTERS THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE!
AMERICA DON'T CONFUSE THE GOVERNOR'S BLUNDERS
WITH THIS MAN, HE HAS DONE NOTHING WRONG!
DON'T PLAY GUILT BY ASSOCIATION, THIS IS A SERIOUS
SITUATION, AND ALL THAT HAVE GOD IN THEM, PLEASE
REALIZE THIS FOR WHAT IT IS, SOMETHING IS ROTTEN
IN DENMARK WHEN I SEE ROLAND BURRIS COME OUT OF
MOTH BALLS AND SAYS HE WANTS TO BE A SENATOR!
THIS MAN IS TO OLD AND TO MUCH OF A LOSER TO
HANDLE THE JOB!
THE GOP ARE LICKING THEIR CHOPS OVER THIS MESS!

i got it!! PHIL SMITH JR is a nom de plum for lynn sweet!! lynn, you can do much better...lol!!

Everyone who studies or keeps up with politics understood that Jesse wanted this seat. He(or perhaps his father) even wanted it before Barack Obama.So what if he did tell lthe governor he wanted the position. Anyone can inform the one in power they have an interest. It would be criminal to purchase a seat.
Let Jesse be thoroughly checked out and if he's clean he will still be in the running. We can't get rid of every politician. If so we will be empty handed. Study the history, associations and conversations of your favorite politicians.

When America backed away from the late 70s legislation re: campaign financing being done by ONLY public methods--it let the WHOLE system be corrupted.
THERE ARE FEW IF ANY national figures who are as clean as they need to be.
It is a JOKE to go after Blago--what did Hillary know about business (yet she was on board of Walmart)? and what did Michelle know about dietetics (yet she was on the board of TreeHouse). Give me a break.
Yet the REPUGS lead the pack in selling us out.
It is FANTASY LAND to think that Blago should be prosectured, or that Jackson is more corrupt than any other politician.
WE NEED CHANGE. Not more witch-hunts. Not more holier than thou posturing.
OUT OF IRAQ NOW--NOT 16 MONTHS from now.
And seixe all assets of KBR and Halliburton and Cheney and Exxon and all the REAL CROOKS.
Blago and the Illinois Combine of Dems and Repugs are merely PIKERS compared to the graft of the Military Industrial Complex.

DO YOU HAVE A NAME?
IF YOU USE IT, YOU WILL END UP ON SATURDAY NIGHT
LIVE AS WELL!
8 MILLION EXPECTED AT THE INAGURATION, WITH REAL
NAMES AND FACES!
IT'S PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO GIVE BLOGGERS A BAD NAME
BUT THAT'S RIGHT YOU DON'T HAVE ONE!
USE YOUR NAME, AND YOU ARE SOMEBODY, USE AN ALIAS
AND YOU ARE LIKE THE GOV, A BIG JOKE!

common, now lynn. we caught you...lol. it's you...lol!!! cut it the f... out. stop this f.....g nom de plum thing. we got blago, the oba dissin' jesse jr., some wacko throws a shoe a "w"..the whole county's laughing!! they think there's something in the water in lake michigan. 8 million people in d.c., duh, i don't think so...lol!!! at this pace we're gonna have 8 million people in detroit trying to get across to windsor or toronto!!

Read "Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson" I wouldn't trust anyone with that last name, or anyone associated with him (including Burris who served as ED for PUSH).
