The Dumbest Human Being In Congress

At some point in everyone’s life we are saddled with a burden.  The citizens of Texas’s 18th Congressional District have been saddled with Sheila Jackson Lee since 1995.

Jackson Lee is the undisputed poster child for utter stupidity.  Three years ago she suggested to congressional colleagues the US Constitution was 400 years old.  The Washington Times noted her remarks.  “Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a Constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what it is not.”

(The US Constitution was formally adopted on Sept. 17, 1787 and ratified on June 21, 1788.)

The graduate of Yale University and the University of Virginia Law School has a cascade of gaffes.  The one I find particularly laughable goes back to her second year as a congresswoman.  It was 1997.  Lee was visiting the Mars Pathfinder Operations Center.  While there, Ms. Lee asked if the Pathfinder had succeeded in taking photographs of the American flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969.  Of course, Armstrong planted the flag on the Moon.

On Friday, Lee vehemently declared her intention to get rid of President Trump for failing to act quickly enough to counteract Russian’s election meddling and framed the president’s most recent Tweets as a step backward in the long march toward equality for women.

Blustering before Fox Business TV cameras, the Texas Democrat asserted the 25th Amendment “lets Congress remove incompetent presidents."

"Let me just explain. The 25th Amendment is utilized when a president is perceived to be incompetent or unable to do his or her job.  He is incompatible with the office and the leadership of this country," she said. "And yes, the idea that his continuous assault on women only compounds the fact that I would ask him, it's a job that he does not seemingly like, he needs to resign."
The very definition of incompetence is a congresswoman who believes the Constitution is 400 years old and Neil Armstrong planted the American flag on Mars.  She’s an embarrassment right along with Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) who expressed concern in 2010 that stationing 8,000 Marines on the island of Guam would cause the small island to “tip over and capsize.”
