“...But he looks poised to sail to reelection, polling shows...”

And if one doesn’t begin to see a pattern of voter stupidity after that statement, hope is lost.

Yup, gotta vote for the “tribe”.

Well,there’s one good thing about today’s election...the results will put JJ Jr right at the top of Osama Obama’s pardons list next January 20!

What’s new? He represents the nit-witted, parasitic, underclass asshated, moonbatty morons in his district who identify with him. I’d bet most of them have diagnosable mental difficulties. What a bunch of macaroons!

Fearless prediction..In a few months, with investigators circling JJjr...he will resign, citing mental health issues, and the investigation will be dropped. His dad will announce that he’s running for his son’s seat, to make sure that “the important work” gets done..

In a better time not too long ago, proven criminality prevented those seeking public office from success.

Today, especially in some circles, it’s considered a resume enhancement.

Read “Golden” about FORMER Governor Rod Blago********* to see the intelligence of IL voters! In a normal world, he couldn’t have gotten a job as dog catcher....What a slimey piece of work he was!

Obama has to be jealous. Jr. got to take months off and avoid debates, critics, etc., and sails to reelection. But Obama had to show up for stuff, and read out loud, and shake hands and stuff. Obama is wondering where he went wrong on this campaigning thing.

I believe that this statement would be correct for all of the Members of the Black Congressional caucus.

They are all in gerrymandered Districts that return them year after year because of their race.

Once in a great while some other black might run against them, but even if the new Black wins the results are the same.

“I’m Off To Vote In A State Where My Vote For President And Senator Doesn’t Matter...California”

Same situation over here in Outer Neeorkistan. We have NO representation in the U S Senate nor in our district in the House. sd

“What was he convicted of?”

You’re right, that wasn’t very precise.

I wasn’t speaking of JJ junior per se, more the whole urban Democrat machine where criminal behavior is an enhancement to someone’s street cred.

Even in our local environs (Oakland, CA), it’s just accepted that certain politicians will use their public positions for personal gain whenever possible. Legality be damned. They’re “owed”, and the rest of us will pay.

I can’t disagree with you. I think J3 is corrupt and a dirt ball, but that is only an opinion...why he will get reelected is beyond my ken.

“...why he will get reelected is beyond my ken.”

Because it all comes down to tribal self-identification by those who are incapable of critical thought, and whose sole interest is themselves.

Whites voting for whites is racism.

Blacks voting for blacks is racial solidarity.

(sigh)
