The white liberals are sad because Jessie Jr was a black man caught stealing. It doesn't fit into their story line. In addition, if Jessie Jr. ever ran for public office again in a black district he would win. All one has to do is look back at the Marion Barry situation where he was smoking crack with prostitutes in a Washington hotel room while mayor of that city. Barry goes to prison comes out and runs for mayor again and amazingly wins. Black people will vote for other blacks even if those elected ultimately harm them. And the white liberals embolden them.

The same thing will happen in Detroit with Kwame Kilpatrick if he can and will run again - he'll get reelected

After reading about the money he stole, the expensive swag he bought with campaign funds, and the constituents he ultimately betrayed, it’s hard to feel anything but contempt for disgraced celebrity son and former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. But apparently not everyone agrees with me. Indeed, the folks over at ‘Morning Joe’ are -- wait for it -- saddened by his downfall (via Jazz Shaw):

Jackson: “For years I have lived off my campaign”
Scarborough: “It’s a sad story.”

Jazz summarized exactly how I felt after watching this nauseating segment:
