(Newser) – Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson has been hospitalized after suffering a stroke, reports celebrity website X17 Online. Michael Jackson's controversial dad, 83, is at a Las Vegas hospital, though his spokeswoman says he's doing fine and could be home tomorrow, reports AP. “The good thing is that he was taken immediately to the hospital as he was with a couple of people at the time," a family friend tells Fox News. Estranged wife Katherine was reportedly on her way to visit.

We wish him a speedy return to full health. He needs to be reminded that voting for Obama comes with a price!
