Sheila Jackson Lee Declares Rodney King a 'Great Philosopher'
American Thinker ^ | June 10, 2012 | M Catharine Evans

Posted on 06/10/2012 9:28:59 AM PDT by kingattax

On Friday in response to a Fox News reporter's question about Obamacare, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), a University of Virginia Law graduate, invoked the name of Rodney King calling him a "great philosopher."

Not since Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) expressed concern that the addition of 8,000 service personnel and their families onto the island of Guam might cause it to tip over have Americans heard such moronic craziness.

Do we really pay the Queen of Racism $174,000 per year?

It’s one thing to be an idiot.

It’s quite another to elect them to public office.

Whatever happened to electing the most qualified, instead of just anybody from your tribe?

(sigh)

Compared to Sheila Jackson-Lee, a whoopee cushion would be considered a "great philosopher".

This was a memorable article on one of the biggest morons in Congress: Sheila Jackson-Lee, Congressional Boss from Hell

To Sheila Jackson Lee I'm sure he's a great philosopher and a genius to boot.

University of Virginia Law graduate

And, sadly, her affirmative action admission to this top law school kept some qualified applicant from being admitted.

Jackson Lee is proof that anyone can be a politician, get elected and go to Washington. Intellect and common sense are not required.

One must remember that many of those serving in the U.S. Congress were “affirmative action” candidates and subsequently were graduated and given a degree accordingly.
No one has ever accused many of those graduates as being either bright nor intelligent.

Obviously no philosopher but he seems to be a pretty decent guy (when sober). I have heard him say that the race baters were pressuring him to make his beating a racial issue. He stunned them when he want out and made his famous statement.

I suppose to Sheila Jackson Lee (and her constituents) Rodney King is a great philosopher.
Of course that is really all we need to know about her and her district.

True. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is also proof of your statement.

I was talking to an old man who could live in Acorn Head’s district. He kept saying “I’m a philosopher.” And that’s not a typo.

It’s hard to say it the way he said it. I should have spelled it “philophoser”. Now, that’s not a type.

“Do we really pay the Queen of Racism $174,000 per year?”

On top of that, we pay for the rent, food, cellphones, SUVs, crack, guns, ammo, etc, for all of her constituents.

I don’t know what’s more disturbing: That Sheila Jackson Lee called Rodney a great philosopher (heh, that’s actually pretty funny) or that Sheila Jackson Lee has a UVA law degree (or actually, a law degree from anywhere not involving mail order). I have to go with the latter.

And there in lies the problem in Washington; People who are smart and could do a good job of running our country won’t run for those offices. Ergo we get the ding bats, and shallow end of the gene pool to represent us.It is not going to change until we have a complete collapse of our system and then perhaps we can start over, with some elected official who have an IQ higher than a brick.

SJL is another monument to "affirmative action".

Everybody who is in favor of this should be ashamed and humiliated by now. Just Obama and Sheila Jackson Lee should be enough proof that the "program" is severely racist and severely wrong.

I actually cringe when I see SJL anywhere. I expect to see the zoo keepers show up.
