Sheila Jackson Lee: Today We Have Two Vietnams, Side by Side, North and South

I’m at a loss for words.

The video says it all about the esteemed congresswomen from Texas, which is my voting district here in Houston.

Paul the German octopus that predicted all the winners in the recent World Cup would have said it better.

    Wow. Prediction: She claims that she meant Korea.

    She’s a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. She used to serve on the NASA subcommittee before she asked whether NASA has pics of Neil Armstrong’s flag on Mars.

    And she went to Yale then U Virginia law school.

  2. Tito Edwards says:

    If she went and graduated from Yale and UVA, then I feel a whole lot better earning my degrees.

  3. Donald R. McClarey says:

    Great juxtaposition Tito. I do believe that Paul the Octopus would do less harm in Congress than the Honorable SJL.

  4. American Knight says:

    This is what happens when you confuse credentials (degrees) with education (knowledge).

    Wisdom is only given to those who pursue virtue, worldly knowledge is limited and apparently for some it is very, very limited.

    Elections reveal the character of the electorate. Fools will elect fools. Do this often enough and the United States of America will become the Divided Fools of America and then the barbarians won’t need to break through the gates. We’ll be the barbarians within the walls, assuming we know how to build walls.

  5. T. Shaw says:

    Twain wrote, “Suppose you were a congressman. And, suppose you were an idiot. But, I repeat myself.”

    Worse for the beloved country: many voters want to give such imbeciles even more power to make even graver mistakes with health care, energy, and our economic well-being.

  6. restrainedradical says:

    Just realized that she can’t even claim she meant Korea because she correctly cites the “58,000 dead” from the Vietnam War.

    It’s not like she was born after the war. She would’ve been in her last semester at UVA when Saigon fell.

  7. daledog says:

    It doesn’t matter. She will claim she meant Korea. Your a *ist/*phobe for noticing her inconsistencies. Time for you to repent.

  8. Blackadder says:

    My guess is that she’ll say what that other congressman said when he made the comments about Guam tipping over: it was a metaphor.

    If she says she was talking about Korea she’s toast.

  9. Paul the German Octopus was definitely one of the world cup highlights. I would support him for congress, but at the very least he should become part of Fox’s all-star team (picture him sitting next to Krautheimer and Fred Barnes) or if his political alignment is more European, perhaps on Obama’s panel of ass-kicking experts.

  10. T. Shaw says:

    DC: Great metaphor: an eight-legged ass-kicker! Like the old adage, “Busier than a one-legged ass-kicker.”

    Five Stars!!!

    Yeap……….there is the proof their mind set is still buried in the 60’s.
    Who said you had to know anything to hold public office let alone chair a committee……..even her explaination of the “mispeak” wouldn’t fit what she really said.
    Yeap-they never grew out of the turbulant 60’s-they don’t even realize Nixon resigned…….same old battles……JUST GROW UP!!!!!
