WASHINGTON: Across town from me resides one of the most pitiful of congressional representatives from among the lowly 435. Shelia Jackson-Lee makes Gone With the Wind’s Prissy look like Socrates. However, every election she receives a 75-80 percent majority of votes. And 95 percent of the black vote in her mostly black district.
For some reason, this is what the Democrat leadership wants. They don’t care about wise and kind blacks or advancement for people of color. What they care about is empowering votes. They don’t care about sex scandals, or liberal bad behavior unless it costs them votes.
Congress continues to get apoplexy in the paroxysm of sex story-accusations. They have created a Frankenstein Monster with their self-righteousness. Unfortunately for them, the monster knows no master. The largest irony is that Democrats do not understand democracy.
Some may, as did Robespierre, learn its framework the hard way. Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee is to the, metaphorically speaking, a guillotine, with the Democratic mob pushing her. Strike one.
However, will Jackson-Lee run, again?
The media consistently ranks Lee as the meanest Democrat Congress member in Washington. Strike one.
However, now she is caught up in the sex scandal involving her firing of an intern who claims she was raped by one of Jackson’s staff. All crimes that excite the mob are never intended to ricochet. No one in the lynch mob expects to get lynched. Strike Two.
Robespierre’s head was in a spin when he realized he had been turned on by the mob.
Now the mob had turned on Jackson-Lee. Now Shelia “The Mean” is getting broom-swept by her side of the political aisle.
Additionally, she’s going to find out that those black voters will just as soon given their 75% votes to another affirmative action lawyer.
Once a mob, always a mob, but they will turn on the leader in a heartbeat. Nancy Pelosi should be watching her own back.
Lee has resigned as chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) at a time when it has its largest block, 52 members. Also, she has given up her chairmanship on an important house judiciary subcommittee. Shelia doesn’t give up the goodies unless Sheila is afraid. She is in her 13th term. Who says there is nothing to numerology.
Not only has she been so often called the meanest but probably the “dumbest.”
Samples of her brilliant mind:
- She thought Neil Armstrong placed the American flag on Mars.
- North and South Vietnam are living side by side peacefully since the end of the Viet Nam War.
- The Constitution is 400 years-old.
Yale degree? Virginia Law school degree? Affirmative action degrees are demonstrating the flaws in a so-called system.
This is just a sampling of her well-spoken genius. Even those Motor Voters and Voting Rights enthusiasts across town are embarrassed when the media has the rare courage to reveal such nuggets to the public.
They should be embarrassed for even electing her. However, the mob thinks rather than their mortification, better her exit.
