Kung Fu Congressman In Trouble!

Embattled Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.

Last February We took a look at Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. (D. Illinois), and saw how he had dumped a bunch of weight and took up Kung Fu. Jackson, who apparantly has somewhat of a temper, threatened to kick-ass on a Republican Congressman that had told him to "shut up" during a debate on the House Floor. Jackson challenged Rep. Lee Terry to "step outside and settle it".
As reported in the Washington Post:
"The consensus in Washington is that Jackson would have whupped Terry's butt. "It would have been Bruce Lee vs. Pillsbury Dough Boy," one congressional aide told the Post."
Well, as we can see, those were "Happier" times for Jackson, he is now front-and-center in the corruption scandal revolving around Governor Blagojevich:

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. declines to answer questions as he leaves a news conference in Washington where he denied being involved in any scheme to buy the Illinois senate seat vacated by President-elect Obama.
Ah, for the good old days When Jackson's only problem was where to beat the crap out of Republican Lee Terry, pictured below:

Martial Arts Mom said...

As for Jesse Jackson, Jr. disgracing martial arts by acting like a school boy whose pride was wounded, well, consider the source...and the source's father! Both of them are about useless!
