Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee as a replacement for outgoing-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.
A letter dated July 25 and signed by CBC Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, urges President Barack Obama to consider Jackson Lee for the position formerly held by Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the position. Napolitano resigned earlier this month to become president of the University of California.
Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security, the nomination letter reads.
Since entering Congress in 1995, Jackson Lee has served on several committees, including Foreign Affairs, Judiciary and Homeland Security, in which she was the Chairwoman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection.
As Chairwoman, Representative Jackson Lee supported increased airplane cargo inspections and increased security for railroads, issues of great importance to the security of this nation and its citizens, the letter continues.
Jackson Lee currently holds the post of Ranking Member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, a position that the CBC says she stands as a strong and honest voice of reason.

Sheila needs to go on Michelle’s school starvation meal program.
Ever see what some severely mentally handicapped people do with feces? In my youth many moons ago, I worked at a state facility for a couple years. Two things: 1: It ain’t pretty. 2: This person qualifies as such based solely on her public record.
Ergo, I wouldn’t let her in a rest room either.
Ah, yes. The Medusa look. Very nice. Suits her.
“Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary” ....
In words everyone can understand, “You have got to be shit&ing me”. This is satire, right?
The Comical defended Lee P. Brown’s incompetence until he was safely re-elected to his final term.
Satire? Maybe it’s just a satirical spoof?
Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant. I cannot imagine a better choice.
Actually I think this would be a great idea. I would love to see his administration filled with Lee’s , Mckinney’s, and Sharpton’s. Maybe that would be the slap in the face this country needs.
Come to think about it, this is “Brilliant.” I’m looking at the Houston Chronicle comments, and even Democrats are saying this would be an “awful” pick. The Obama voters are claiming, “Obama isn’t that stupid ...” So I really do hope Sheila Jackson Lee raises a ruckus and does whatever it takes to get herself nominated. She would not only be the laughing stock for Houstonians, but she would capture the attention of comedians all over the world. Wow, just imagine the DHS if SJL is in charge. If this appointment doesn’t convince Americans to vote Republican then America is doomed.
Don’t know what kind of butt kissing has gone on behind the scenes by Sheila but she angered the black community and Obama when she endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008.
Jackson Lee as HomeyLand Sec. will be Lynch Whitey
Are we thinking of the same Sheila Jackson Lee?
Because we don’t have enough stupid people in government running more agencies. (snicker)
Obama would do it, too. And the spineless Rs in the Senate would confirm her.
