Sheila Jackson Lee: Color Me Outrageous

This Yale-University-University-of-Virginia-School-of-Law-graduate nine-term Texas-Democrat Congresswoman cannot be shamed: She doesn’t hesitate to humiliate her staff in public; she’s not embarrassed to make a scene over the menu in first class, which is how she insists upon traveling, as “I am a queen and I demand to be treated like a queen” (unless she can’t on account of being PNG’d by the airline); she has no compunction about behaving with amazing rudeness toward a constituent who is asking her a question at a town hall meeting; she’s got no second thoughts—nor first ones, either, apparently—about bursting into flamingly incoherent paroxysms of self-righteous indignation (and referring to herself in the third person) during congressional hearings; and she can’t keep her finger off the race-baiting trigger, which is just where it found itself Friday, when its owner suggested that the battle over the debt ceiling currently raging between the president and House and Senate Republicans is motivated by racism.

“I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president, only this president, only this one has received the kind attacks and disagreements and inability to work,” she seethed on the House floor.

Only this one. . . . Read between the lines. . . . What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?

Well golly, Mrs. Lee, I just don’t know. Could it be that he’s partly white?


  1. so if we give Obama everything he wants and allow the country to go socialist, we`re fine, upstanding Americans; but if we oppose his Marxist-socialist naiive ideas that never have, and never will work, then we`re racistÉ Sounds like a setup to me. If we were racist, he`d still be a community organizer. As it turns out, he runs the country like one.

  2. I forgot to mention how lovely she was at the King hearings regarding the spread of Islamic jihad in the American prison system. She tried to compare Islam to Christianity and the "terror" attacks on abortion clinics, as if there was a real comparison to make. On one hand, the "religion of peace" calls for jihad and the spread of Islam, on the other hand, Christianity calls for peace and love. Now it isn't perfect, we all know, because it's practiced by humans, but to compare the two is ludicrous and self-serving. This woman is a menace.
