good OLD liberal DNA @ work

Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has signed a plea deal in relation to charges of misusing campaign funds, a deal that includes "significant jail time," according to sources at the Chicago Sun-Times.

The congressmen allegedly used official funds to decorate his Chicago home and purchase a $40,000 Rolex for a female friend.

Jackson resigned from the House after being re-elected in November 2012. His criminal misuse of funds was already being investigated prior to his re-election, and he'd also caused consternation by disappearing for 3 weeks and re-emerging to reveal a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. As Fox News puts it, "the confirmation of a plea deal marks another blow for a public figure who was once considered a rising star."

Dry Drunk" has been described as "A condition of returning to one's old alcoholic thinking and behavior without actually having taken a drink." Or as one wise old drunk put it, if a horse thief goes into A.A. what you can end up with is a sober horse thief. Or a personal favorite: you can take the rum out of the fruit cake, but you've still got a fruit cake!

Those who quit drinking but are still angry about it, wind up living miserable lives and usually make everyone else around them miserable too. If it has been said once in an Al-Anon meeting, it has been whispered thousands of times, "I almost wish he would go back to drinking."
