Jesse Jackson Junior Reacts

Congressman Jesse Jackson Junior reacts to rumors of his implication in the Illinois Governor's scandal. A fascinating video to watch; I don't have anything to say politically, but in terms of theatrical performance, his tone of betrayed anger is right on the money. This is the first time I've ever seen him or heard from him, so I can't evaluate the underlying truth, but the theatrical nature of the performance is spot on.

Speaking of spot on performances, did you catch Mike Huckabee debating gay marriage with Jon Stewart? It's one of the reasons that, despite my anger at all of Huckabee's social and governmental positions, I still respect the man himself.
