    It's like a burglar being disappointed when his son is suspended from school for stealing.

    Hmm? It's not just Chicago. Wasn't Ted Kennedy voted in?

    By Chicago standards, Jesse Jackson Jr is above reproach, and should be above the law.

    He fully meets the standards and expectations of those who voted for him.

    Sadly, that tells us far more about the good citizens of Chicago than it does about a crooked Congressman, the husband of a crooked local politician, and son of a race-hustling father.

    There are so many crooked politicians in, or from, Chicago that the mind boggles. We are sure lucky we don't have people like that running our country.... wait a minute!!!

    Chris is implying that narcissistic voters will elect the guy they think will give them the most government cheese, regardless of his character.

    Illinois only has one governor in jail right now.
    Ryan was sent home a couple of weeks ago.
    But it's still early in the day; maybe we can send another one to prison.

    Gosh, Chris. Chicago is over 2000 miles removed from LA, where the crimes you mentioned were committed. Just what are you implying here?

    Yes, and these same people believe OJ Simpson is innocent too. Speaks volumes about these people.

    How many former Illinois governors are now in prison?

    With strict gun control, how is the crime rate, and violence?

    Someone failed as a community organizer, and there are much to be disappointed about.
