Isn't this the gal that came storming through the checkpoints waving her cell phone telling everyone to get out of her way, that she was priviledged class and didn't want to be checked out?

Because there is absolutely no one in the entire country less qualified for this position she is probably a shoe in for the nomination.

My mouth just fell open. That would be an enormous disaster. Don’t even want to think that could happen.

They might as well give it to this moron. It looks like Bradley Manning is going to be out of the loop for a while and won’t be available.

Please, O Lord, give her, this position... and please, give her an Open Mike...... Crazy cannot possibly get any crazier at this point... and having a lunatic at the helm of the DHS will shed disinfecting sunlight upon this evil corrupt demonic Government that is over us. It is BAD! Shelia at the helm can only shine the disinfecting daylight that we need, at this point.

The ultimate humiliation for Big Sis would be having the stupidest woman in politics, Sheila Jackson Lee, replace her. That would betray the fact that there are no qualifications necessary to hold that post.

Why don’t they nominate Hank Johnson? He’ll have a total visual from the catbird seat of HS, if Guam capsizes! Johnson and Lee...two peas in a pod!

why not, she is about as qualified for head of homeland security as Obama is to be president-affirmative action at its finest. instead of the British saying God save the
Queen we need to be saying God save America.

Putting a competent person in the position is like putting a band aid on someone who has been guillotined.

The whole damned DHS should be abolished.

You are about 6 nails too late at this point. Tell them to stop nailing additional nails into the coffin. This Parrot is no more. It has went to meet it’s maker! Stop beating it already! Get ready to clean up the mess, if there is anything left to salvage.

She once asked a NASA administrator if a Mars rover would be able to send back photos of the place where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planted the American flag.

“Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked — that are not enforced, that are straw purchased and they come into places even that have strong gun laws.”
“Why? Because we don’t have sensible gun legislation.”

In 2003, Sheila Jackson-Lee complained that hurricane names were too “lilly white” and said that “All racial groups should be represented.” She suggested Hurricanes “Keisha, Jamal and Deshawn”.

Lee tried to denounce the Tea Party as racist at an NAACP meeting, but in the middle of it she forgot the word for sheets, and condemned them for wearing, “uh, clothing with a name.”

Not only has Jackson-Lee voted against every national security measure she could think of, but she actually goes out looking for dictators to support. She invited Assad to speak in Texas, urged F-16 parts sales to Hugo Chavez, called for an end to economic sanctions against Saddam and participated in an event conducted by an Iranian regime front group against military action on Iran. She might be considered a walking security risk, if she actually knew anything.

Well, on the bright side of things, anyone wearing a hoodie gets fast tracked through security with any personal items that they would like to bring on a plane.

Since white hating black people are in control I guess we're gonna get Sheila Jackson lee types from top to bottom.
Then the transition to a Zimbabwe style govt will be a quick one.

Shelia Jackson Lee is always a candidate for the stupidest person in Washington. In fact, she is a charter member of the club.

This abject moron is grossly over her head as a congressperson - putting her in a job that actually has real responsibility would be like electing a sexual predator to be mayor of the biggest collection of young women in the country - therefore, in rat speak, a good idea.

The recommendation letter was a door prize at the most recent CBC dinner. Sheila mugged Maxine Waters and Hank Johnson for it.

Gerrymandering was to put blacks in office. But if the district is majority black, like Lee’s, it’s left alone.

I wouldn’t put it past obama to nominate her just to stick it in America’s face. And not one republican would have the guts to oppose her nomination.
