Posted on 07/26/2009 8:19:46 AM PDT by TexasCajun
The most bizarre moment of the Michael Jackson memorial a few weeks ago at the Staples Center in Los Angeles had to be the rambling speech delivered by Sheila Jackson Lee, the joke of a woman who happens to represent part of Houston in the United States Congress. (At the time, Roll Call reported that Jackson Lee has a history of making cameo appearances at funerals and that her staff used to cull the obituaries to find funerals for her to attend.) There she announced that she would introduce a resolution on the House floor listing every single one of Jacksons charitable contributions and lauding him as a world humanitarian (his generosity to various teenage boys was presumably excluded). Fortunately, Speaker Nancy Pelosi recognized that even this would be too much for the American people to take and put the kibosh on Jackson Lees scheme

Who paid for that trip for you to go to that memorial service? reporter Joel Eisenbaum asked Jackson Lee when she appeared live on the Sunday morning newscast.
Well, uh that umm those resources are resources that I have and, therefore, they are in a way that does not interfere with anything that has to do with serving the United States Congress, answered Jackson Lee.
Understood, Eisenbaum replied. So, public funds?
Those resources are resources that I have, said Jackson Lee.
"I am but a meek rank amateur compared to the Queen of Photo Hogs!"
SJL first black-female astronaut to Mars.
And who paid to have the resolution framed as beautifully as it was?
Photoshopped...you don’t see many people wear winter garb on 80 degree days.
photoshopped. fooled a bunch of nuts after 9-11
***What is the history of that photo?
I am embarrassed to admit that I have not seen it before.***
Photo shopped just after 9-11. Used to be lots of threads where the “tourist guy” appeared in various scenes, much like the looter with the beer in New Orleans who keeps showing up.
This woman has a long history of acting like a complete and total a**hole.
...in February 1998, things finally came to a head. On a flight home to Houston, Jackson Lee became enraged when flight attendants failed to produce the seafood special she liked. "Don't you know who I am?" she reportedly thundered. "I'm Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered!"
...at a March 2, 1998, reenactment of the march on Selma, an irate Jackson Lee called her scheduler in D.C. demanding to know why she hadn't been given a ride to the event by the organizer, as a white colleague had been. According to the aide--who quit after just a month and a half on the job--Jackson Lee shrieked, "You don't understand. I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen."
For details of this and more of her true craziness, see:
Google “Tourist guy” images and you will get your fill.
Tourist Guy!!! Dude! Where ya been!?!
When you're from a district where a large number of people can't read or write ...or, pay taxes, this is the type of representative you get.
What an embarrassment to this country.
I don’t think he’s been buried anywhere yet. He’ll be like James Brown - left in storage while the family argues.
“I am embarrassed to admit that I have not seen it before.”
Oh lord!!! Where have you been? It is such a great story.
His name is “Tourist guy.”
If no one helps you out in next few minutes, I will.
That Lee is a member of Congress is proof of reverse racism. I’m happy to explain this in more detail for those who don’t see it that way. We tolerate people like this in our high level elected offices because we have come to accept and look the other way when there is an issue of race. That, in and of itself, is perpetuating racism. There are so many great and qualified minorities in the country that are never heard, but we tolerate someone like Lee who is arrogant, vituperative, and ill-informed.
Anybody have a photo of Looter Guy to share?
Thank you. That would complete my morning.
If I had a dime for every Congressional event she has attended and tried to take credit for, though in truth she did not lift a finger to bring about, I would be a wealthy wonk. Even more annoying: she speaks at length and NEVER knows when to shut up, even when she is putting her foot in it and displaying her ignorance for all to see.
Is MJ still dead and does anybody know the location of this hero for the black community’s nose?
If Jeffrey Dahmer had been black and extremely good at dancing,, would he had been honored for his cooking abilities.
For crying out loud, the freak is dead, he should stay dead and not elevated.
I mean, what do these people say, “well other that all that, he was a great singer and had rhythm.... ?
Hello, he did little boys and in most communities, that’s considered a bad thing.
First OJ for nearly cutting his wife’s head off.. but he played a good game, then MJ... the pedophile nutcase. Now they have Obama, the guy whose trying to destroy our country.... Wow, all that is going to be tough to top, but I guess everybody needs their heros.
Such a pathetic publicity hound....since she’s been in congress, at every state of the union speech, she’s always at the end of the aisle trying to shake POTUS’s hand, getting a hug/squeeze. Saw her there each and every time George Bush entered...reaching out for her hug...and then this past January...the same with the Marxist-in-Chief. She’s such a predictable joke.
He is everywhere. He was also at the Concord crash, at the Hindenberg crash, and much, much more.
Tourist Guy is Peter Guzli, a Hungarian.
Although the article does not say this (I read it in another article), he had spend sometime in Colorado. He had a job there but had left for home when 9/11 happened. And by the way, he is not at the WTC center in that photo. He was on another building. Notice it was cold, therefore, not September.
Photo #2 looks like Nosferatu getting ready to slap Aunt Esther.
Does the local media ever take SJL to task?
The Chronicle didn’t cover any of until the alternative City Paper in Houston started writing about it, and made the Chron look really bad. Then they started covering it, but you could tell they really, really didn’t want to. Occasionally they would run something that skewered her, but they are in bed with her (ouch, my eyes) and have pretty much pulled their punches.
Well, given her very high opinion of herself, I would say that we paid for it. The most dangerous place in the world is to between sheila and a tv camera. Her aids have spoken on how she is demanding as hell on everyone else, but cannot get anywhere on time. She will leave her limo idling for a long time, then berate the driver for making her late. She claimed that nasa put a man on mars. And recently she “hosted” a federal job fair here in Houston and promised that there 600,000 (federal) jobs on the way. However she is repeatedly reelected from her district. She is a legend in her own mind. And she is in Congress.
I predict that some day she and that other camera whore, Schumer, are going to collide and hurt each other trying to get in front of the same camera in order to pontificate.
That’s Cooter the Looter. Sorry he is busy trying to pass “healthcare reform” right now. Can’t be bothered.
That would be funny as hell. But sheila would jump up and scream racism because scummer is a typical white guy.
LOL! Now that would be a site worth seeing!
A friend of mine used to be a bank manager in Houston. Back when she was still a teller, sjl came in to cash a check. She had never seen her before and asked her for her id. Well, sjl started on the “don’t you know who I am?????” She apparently made quite a scene, but my friend was firm and insisted on seeing her id.
Sorry, I must have been confused.
But I see Cooter the Looter carrying a bunch of beer. Is it for his friend Gates?
Love the pix of NOW demanding emergency contraception. Someone should tell them that you can’t get pregnant unless you have sex with a guy.
Liberalism digs our graves.
Heck no! I want my astronauts to be competent and stable people.
She has to go to Mars to retrieve the US flag she said the Apollo astronauts left there.
