Oh my, it didn’t long for that little dynasty to come tumbling down. But as crooked Democrat politicians go, what Jesse Jackson Jr. and wife did are small potatoes.

Some folks point to Jesse Jackson Jr.’s attempt to buy the Senate seat vacated by Obama. But I can’t help feeling that the “hot mic” incident involving his father, you remember, when he suggested that he’d like to cut Obama’s nuts off, played a far bigger role. Call it Chicago style payback.
