As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Jackson Lee: Constitution 400 Years Old and Counting

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), thinks the Constitution is four centuries old.

Well it is that we have lasted some 400 years operating under a Constitution that clearly defines what is Constitutional and what is not.

Well it is indeed. Ever since the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians drew up the Constitution over the first Thanksgiving feast, it has served as a beacon for Americans and a clear guide to what is Constitutional, not withstanding every 5-4 decision ever reached by the Supreme Court.

Jackson Lee is a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee. In 2010 she expressed satisfaction that North and South Vietnam were getting along, even though there has been not South and North Vietnam for four decades.

She’s also compared the Tea Party to the KKK and opined that repealing Obamacare would be unconstitutional.

She recently asserted that lawmakers would be writing up executive actions for Obama. Because that’s how the Pilgrims designed things to work.

A spokesman denied that Jackson Lee had lost her mind, noting that she had never had one.

    • WOW! I guess this must mean the constitution was written right after the astronauts walked on MARS! Folks, our tax dollars are paying for this idiocy.

  1. ah, Sheila Jackson Lee! the gift that keeps on giving–to Republicans.

    she truly is one of the stupidest people in Congress. but I suppose that’s racist to point out, huh…

    • It’s Not just racist to say how ignorant and stupid she is. It’s also putting down women!

      Of course, the bigger morons are the people who keep voting for her.
      I’m surprised she can find her way out of her bedroom each morning.

      How many members on both sides really know anything?
      Seriously, most of these people shouldn’t be near a clothes hanger, let alone Congressional power.

  2. Is it any wonder why nothing substantial gets done. This woman is a disgrace.

    Does she still have a driver who is on-call for her and drives her the two blocks to and from work each. She ought to walk. Might clear all that mental slush in there.
    Does she still demand that any airplane she is flying on wait for her,holding up all the other passengers, when she is late.

    Someone needs to do a Vulcan mind meld on her and pray for good results.

    • as with Harry Reid, you just have to wonder how these people keep getting reelected, OVER and OVER and OVER again. who is voting for them? Dingey Harry and Wacky Sheila must really bring home the pork to their districts.

      any Nevada/Texas voters out there who can explain the attraction of your states to them?

      just so you know I’m not without sin myself: my once-proud state of Michigan keeps returning the self-righteous John Conyers to DC. what’s our excuse?! I’m not sure. ;-)

      • I think that they have accumulated so much money to campaign with they intimidate any opposition that has the audacity to oppose them.
        However,…I think that the people are beginning to see through that tactic, thanks to the internet etc.
        The IRS brownshirts that are still determined to stifle the Tea Party should tell you that it is not going to be a fair fight in 2014 if the they have anything to do with it.

      • In Stinky’s case, a combination of unions and welfare minorities that make up Las Vegas got him re-elected. The jury’s still out on voter fraud, although SEIU was in charge of the voting machines – draw your own conclusions. The rest of Nevada is mortally embarrassed and heart-sick.

  3. The level of stupidity she continually displays to us is only surpassed by the idiots that keep voting her into office.
    She is a premier example of the stupidity that appears to be rampant on capital hill.

  4. The last sentence is far too close to the truth. That this woman was elected once to the Congress is an embarassment. That she has been reelected multiple times, after most voters have actually heard her speak, and that she has been awarded senior committee positions within Congress, is just unexcusable in rational society.

  5. That just goes to show that affirmative action can get anyone a law degree.
    What a joke that woman is….still thinks she is Barbara Jordan.

  6. Yes, we all know she is a moron, when she was at NASA for the Mars lander she asked if they took a picture of the flag Armstrong planted their. The real question should be why would people in Houston want to be represented by such a fool.

    • You had to bring up Hank!!! One week before the 2010, three neighborhoods (including ours) were gerrymandered into his congressional district fro Rob Woodall’s district. From conservative to idiot overnight…….I can’t even think about it without being ill. On a side note…….the main reason Hank Johnson is there is because a large amount of Republicans voted in the Democrat primary race for Hank Johnson over Cynthia McKinney. So, We are better served by an idiot over a communist nut job.

  7. “A spokesman denied that Jackson Lee had lost her mind, noting that she never had one in the first place.”

    AND IF anyone had doubts….

    In 2003, Sheila Jackson-Lee complained that hurricane names were too “lilly white” and said that “All racial groups should be represented.” She suggested Hurricanes “Keisha, Jamal and Deshawn”.

    • If that was done before she made that statement, you know, just know Sheila would say it was racially motivated, naming destructive weather using ” black ” names.

  8. The fact that she is not embarrassed about the historical inaccuracies is even worse than her saying them.

    It’s one thing to be ignorant (of the facts) it is another to be ignorant and proud.

    • The only reason she gets away with it is because she is a black female.
      So is Condi Rice.
      So is Star Parker.
      Difference,….? They are not left wing progressives.
      They have been essentially shut down for espousing conservative ideas and Constitutional values and principles that fly in the face of the progressive movement that is determined to take this Country into a socialistic mire that could take years to remove ourselves from.

      So,…what do they call female black conservatives ?
      Obviously, they can’t call them ‘Uncle Tom’s’.

  9. “The Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians drew up the Constitution over the first Thanksgiving feast”. Isn’t that when they made a Thanksgiving meal of Popcorn, Toast, Jellybeans and Pretzels? Or was that Charlie Brown???

    Why in God’s name is she speaking of that guideline anyway?? Shouldn’t Shelia and the Black Caucus be drawing up Executive Orders for the President? I am starting to agree that “Inequality” is a fact. She certainly came up short in the brain department…….just like the Scarecrow! ROFL…….Scarecrow Jackson Lee……..I wonder if Rush would pay me for that one!

  10. I spoke with a woman at CPAC who once lived in Lee’s district. She moved out, but I felt sorry for her so I bought her a drink :-)

  11. She represents TX-18th which is Houston. The district is composed of 37% white, 40% black and 36% Hispanic. She won in 2010 with 70%. She missed 6.9% of votes. 4th highest for the TX delegation. She has been in Congress since 1995. A good website to find stuff about Congress is Govtrack.us
