sheila jackson lee strikes again

Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) took the House floor Tuesday night to talk about a very important topic. A super bowl ad.

She said the ad, “showed a demeaning role for African-American women.” She went on to criticize the ad further because it is Black History Month. You can watch the ad below.

Forget that Democrats have been complaining about the GOP not talking about jobs there is so much absurdity in this claim that I could write a book about it. However, the part that bothers me most about this is that it is not the first time Congressman Lee has said something this ludicrous.

In 2003 she claimed that hurricane names were “lily white” and needed to be better represented by other ethnic groups.

In 2007 she wanted to lift a ban on selling F-16 parts to Venezuela.

You know because that Hugo Chavez is not crazy, he is just misunderstood.

Congressman Lee also said that North and South Vietnam  were currently living peacefully.

But my all time favorite was when she asked if the Mars Pathfinder had taken a picture of the flag Neil Armstrong planted on Mars.

Can you imagine if Sarah Palin had said any of these things?
