And Sheila Jackson-Lee, (D)-Tx, proves that point yet again.
Sheila Jackson Lee Thinks the Constitution is 400 Years Old
Yep. America and it's Constitution, both 400 years old. And this is obviously the smartest woman that voters in Houston could find to represent them. Says a lot about that part of Houston, doesn't it?
But aside from her ignorance about our nation and it's constitution, Sheila has been embarrassing her district routinely since 1995 with stunts like demanding a daily ride from her apartment to her office, a distance of one block, abusing airlines to the extent that she was kicked off of at least one, and burning through staffers like no one else in Congress.
She's also the one who, while touring the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 2005, asked them to have the Mars Rover take pictures of the flag that Astronaut Neil Armstrong planted there in 1969. Mars...moon...whatever.
And knowing all of this, the voters in Texas' 18th Congressional District go to the polls every two years and yell "She's our gal!" and reward her with another term and the rest of us just have to live under the laws that she votes for or sponsors. Luckily for us, she generally doesn't do much besides messing up ribbon-cuttings in her own district and wasting Congress' time giving honors to racist drug-using rappers on the House floor.
