Sheila Jackson Lee: We’ve lasted some 400 years operating under the Constitution…

posted at 9:21 pm on March 12, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

I don’t typically like to give anyone too much grief for what could easily be an innocent mental-to-verbal lapse, but… c’mon, now. Given that she took to the House floor to explicitly argue against the constitutionality of the GOP’s proposed Enforce The Law Act, I must say that her argument might have been a teeny bit more convincing if she was a little more firm in her background knowledge of the actual Constitution. Yikes.

Frankly, maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman, and others for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years operating under a Constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not. The Enforcement Act is not constitutional, but it gives us an opportunity to raise these issues. That’s what freedom is, that’s what the opportunity of democracy is all about.

Er… the Constitution was ratified in 1788. About 225 years ago. Merp.

OK Houston Voters, who is running against Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee in 2014?

If Rep. Jackson Lee is the best you’ve got, then I shudder to think how dumb the rest of Houston Voters must be.

In other breaking news, Christopher Columbus discovered America when he got lost crossing the English Channel with Duke William’s invasion force in 1066.

Of course, Ms. J-L knows he really invaded America to found colonies to import slaves to, and so he could spend his spare time killing Native Americans for no readily apparent reason other than being white, European, and male.

There’s a point at which stupid goes beyond the level of parody. She reached it a long time ago.

So we bust her chops for saying 400years and we ignore what is really important in her statement.

Where in the Constitution, SJL, is the federal government give the right to:

Regulate firearms (2nd Amendment: Right to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED)

Force states to … allow abortions, recognize gay marriage, etc., etc. (10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.) Please, Ms Lee, where in the Constitution is the federal government given that power?

Prohibit prayer or religious expression in public schools or other public venues (1st Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…)

I could go on and on.

It’s no wonder conservatives are losing the debate. We’d rather focus on the insignificant stupidity of a simple-minded woman and ignore the real issues that are killing us.

What I find amazing is that liberals want to be governed by and give more power to these people whose only qualification is that received at least one more vote than the other guy.

At least if they passed some kind of competency exam prior to running for office. Maybe they should be required to play a game of trivial pursuit and get a minimum of 4 of the six pieces before they could run.

“What happened in Selma, Alabama and Birmingham also stirred the conscience of the nation…This young man named Barack Obama…came over to this country. He met this woman…(who) had a good idea there was some craziness going on because they looked at each other and they decided…it might…be possible for us to get together and have a child. There was something stirring across the country because of what HAPPENED (PAST TENSE) in Selma, Alabama… So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don’t tell me I’m not coming home to Selma, Alabama.”

Plus I would bet good money that Palin’s math SAT’s are higher than Obama’s. Verbal may be close, but math had to be higher. Of course it’s hard to know since Obama won’t reveal any of his grades or test scores. Wonder why. Must be because he doesn’t want to embarass us mortals.

Are you serious?

Pickle on March 12, 2014 at 10:34 PM

Yes. After you answer that, you have to answer one more.

Forget it. Only Maury she understands is Povich

Lanceman on March 12, 2014 at 10:40 PM

Actually, the Constitution was ratified in 1789.

Surprised no one caught that.

Still better to be off by 13 years than 225. Even so, I feel as stupid as a Houston congresswoman. :(

MichaelGabriel on March 12, 2014 at 10:16 PM

The resolution to operate under the Constitution was passed in 1788.

Do you know who Deb Frisch is? No fair Googling.

hawkdriver on March 12, 2014 at 10:42 PM

Now, get out of the way.

Pickles on March 12, 2014 at 10:13 PM

Look, I’m from Northern New England, so I know what a Noob Manure Spreader is.

Wide Load!

Del Dolemonte on March 12, 2014 at 10:42 PM

I actually enjoy watching her. On mute. Her voice makes my ears bleed.

Pickle on March 12, 2014 at 10:18 PM

Yeah, I can see where you’d want to protect your ears
from hearing anything that may “penetrate” your Brain….

Now for me, Killary does a number on my Wood…

ToddPA on March 12, 2014 at 10:42 PM

Your Cult Leader O’bama has stated as fact the following.

1. “Austrian” is a language.

2. There are 57 states in the US. Of course, that was a Freudian Slip (57 are in OIS)

3. The 50th State is “in Asia.”

Obama taught her everything she knows and she still don’t know nuthin’.

Are you another Palin hater?

hawkdriver on March 12, 2014 at 10:15 PM

I actually enjoy watching her. On mute. Her voice makes my ears bleed.

On the other hand, my Heroin, Hillary Clinton, is superbly mellifluous, and totally eloquent.

Pickles on March 12, 2014 at 10:18 PM

FIFY.

That’s awesome. You understand then that weird vib people get when they met her in real person or have to deal with her showing up on a blog as an unhinged hateful troll?

Your family still talks about her, right?

hawkdriver on March 12, 2014 at 10:47 PM

Murphy9 on March 12, 2014 at 10:44 PM

Saw getalife last week in a Washington Com-Post story comment thread.

Uses the name “getalife1″ there.

She’s pure evil, but I am not her nephew.

Especially when she’s “No Waaays Taaaard”, huh

I mean, that’s pure Eloquence right there.

“my Heroin”

I’d advise you to put down the needle.

HAHA, yeah I found a few of her comments.

Don’t worrk cons

the adults are in charge

Murphy9 on March 12, 2014 at 10:54 PM

Pickles is more proof that open registrations sure have attracted some certifiable idiots of late.

CWchangedhisNicagain on March 12, 2014 at 10:56 PM

Speaking of idiot congress critters where is Cynthia McKinney these days?

CWchangedhisNicagain on March 12, 2014 at 10:56 PM

You can always be counted on to raise the level of discourse here.

Pickle on March 12, 2014 at 10:59 PM

Aaaaanyway.

What’s more important than people mischaracterizing Palin’s comments, is that we have actual video of a man talking about implementing the farthest reaching and most expensive legislation in the history of our nation and he can’t string a single coherent point together.

Further, the idiots on the stage behind him nodding and humoring him like he’s their window-licking imbecile cousin from the country.

Hell, she has probably voted for Sheila Jackson-Lee regardless.

What Socialists won’t do?

viking01 on March 12, 2014 at 11:05 PM

I don’t typically like to give anyone too much grief for what could easily be an innocent mental-to-verbal lapse…

Well, if it were her first one, rather than simply another in a long line of sub-moronic soundbites…

Nah, it’s ok – she’s a blithering simpleton, only where she is because of affirmative action. Yeah, I said it. If she had to survive on the content of her character or her intellect, she’d have starved to death already.

Midas on March 12, 2014 at 11:06 PM

No

Pickle on March 12, 2014 at 11:05 PM

But, assuming that you are old enough, you voted for Obama?

Oldnuke on March 12, 2014 at 11:07 PM

More wisdom from Shiela Jackson Lee:

“Life is like a box of Chiclets….”

(okay…she didn’t say this, but Dan Rather claims it’s fake but true)
