A Sheila Jackson Lee Twofer

This week brought us a Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-umb) twin-spin of lunacy, race hustling and a dose of geographic ignorance.
Jackson Lee, who continues to champion the cause of securing American women the same rights that women in China, Algeria, Afghanistan and Rwanda enjoy (okay American ladies, altogether now, “Thanks Sheila!”), was in typical form at the NAACP convention this week. The convention was held in Kansas City, which of course isn’t far from Omaha — home of the beach where D-Day began after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.
First up, we find out that Jackson Lee hasn’t had a refresher course in geography since at least 1975, if ever:
Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee — who once famously asked where she could find photos of the American flag that Neil Armstrong planted on Mars — yesterday insisted, in stark defiance of basic facts of history, that “today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace.”
Here’s Sheila in all her… whatever it is:
Jackson Lee had previously referred to “countries like Europe.” Wait, it was President Obama who said that — nevermind.
Sheila Jackson Lee may well have ended up mentally challenged due to her oxygen supply being cut off for an extended period of time after choking on a deck of race cards she’d accidentally ingested, but she’s still not afraid to play with that deck:
And I thank you professor very much. I’m going to be engaging you with those very powerful numbers that you have offered on what the tea party recognizes, uh, or is recognized as. Might I add my own P.S.? All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party.
Did the wacko on the moonbat pulpit with an undying loyalty to the party that just wept as they buried a beloved former Klansman say the Tea Party traded in their white hoods for Brooks Brothers? Jackson Lee of course isn’t alone on this.
She can talk about fashion all she wants, but it’s almost impossible to accessorize stupid.
