I was reading today that Jesse Jackson, Jr. says he is fighting for his life.

I had to roll my eyes.

Really, Jesse? Really?

I don't know about you, but he seems a little bit overdramatic about this situation. If you don't know what I'm talking about, turn on CNN and read about the current Blagojevich scandal.

Now, Jesse, if you're not guilty, why are you fighting for your life? If you're not guilty, it will pass. I mean, it;s not like his family is a stranger to controversy and scandal.

Now, the reason Jesse, Jr. seems suspect to me is because he was, in my opinion, too vocal about wanting Obama's Senate seat. I don't know, it just felt weird that we're reading in the headlines about how badly he wants the position. So, the fact that he is under scrutiny now, only seems fair. He brought the attention to himself. He could have quietly advocated for the spot, but he was giving media interviews about it, I believe, before Election Day.

So, Jesse, Jr, though I hope you're not involved in this Blagojevich mess, you do need more people before I'll completely buy that you're 100% innocent.
