#4 Steve, c'mon! This is Illinois we're talking about. He's Jesse Jackson, JR, fer crying out loud. He doesn't need to campaign. He just needs to say "I'm Jesse Jackson JR, and I approved this message"

#5 If I was that big of a scumbag I'd be depressed. But I'm thinking if you're shameless enough to become that big of a scumbag you wouldn't be depressed about it. You'd be living large like all the rest of the kleptocracy. Must be something else.

#7 depression is a real thing
it hits blacks and whites and in between, poor and rich, morally good and morally bad, tall and short, lean and fat
in some cases the disease is easily treatable in others the doctors struggle to keep up

#9 If the dude is so depressed that he can't show up for work, it is time for him to retire and let someone else do the job. He will make fat money in retirement.
