Uh oh.  Is “exhaustion” the new code word for “problems of an uncomfortable nature”?

Politico reports:

In a brief statement released Monday, Jackson’s staff disclosed that the lawmaker has been on medical leave since June 10. Jackson, who has served in Congress since 1995, has not voted in the House since June 8, voting records show.

A spokesman for Jackson did not know when the lawmaker would return to Washington.

Because he is a politician, the Twitterverse is naturally skeptical.


We wish Jackson a speedy recovery from whatever ails him and sympathize, as America is pretty exhausted too.
