Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, had an "oops" moment on the House floor, as seen in C-Span video.
The Houston representative declared the U.S. Constitution was some 400 years old.
Unfortunately, that's incorrect.
The Constitution was created in 1787 and ratified nearly a year later. Four hundred years ago, Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in North America, was founded.

It’s sad to say she’s on the intelligent end of the CBPC
Sheila Jackson Lee says Constitution is 400 years old
Oh Slings I’m dying of laughter here!!!!!
She remembers when it came out on her 50th birthday?
Her IQ is average— 80
i have said stupid stuff before
Sheila Jackson Lee went to Yale University. This is a fact. It is also a joke.
Is this the same genius who thought Neil Armstrong planted the flag on Mars?
Yea but you aren’t an elected Rep who kinda sorta should know these things a bit better.
Of course, I still cant find the flag she says we planted on Mars.
Is it affirmative action, or just stupid is as stupid does?
On May 14, 1607, the Virginia Company explorers landed on Jamestown Island, to establish the Virginia English colony on the banks of the James River 60 miles from the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay.
Bet if you tested most reps on both sides, they couldn’t hit 80 with a tailwind.
She oughta run for POTUS to demonstrate to us all what this country has become. She’d win easily.
And the same genius who said after we left, North Vietnam and South Vietnam lived side by side in peace.
And complained that hurricanes don’t have African-American sounding names.
And said on the House floor “I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.”
Yeah, that one.
Jacksome lee requires more upkeep!
Some of the dumbest people I ever met are graduates of Yale ..or Harvard for that matter. Matter of fact, just about every problem we face as a nation today is a direct result of the graduates of those 2 schools and quite frankly I’m getting sick of it. Absolute morons being put into positions of power solely because the “Ivy league” status of those two moron producing machines posing as colleges.
“Sheila Jackson Lee says Constitution is 400 years old”
That’s something I’d expect Obama to say. But Sheila Jackson Lee?
She is Dumber than a Box of Barbara Boxers.
In fact, Anvils, Hammers and Rocks make fun of her at Cocktail Parties.
LMAO! Holy smoke you have to be kidding me, I never heard of those. WHO the hell voted for this moron? Don’t tell me: Blacks because of her race. Exact same reason we got another moron in the WH.
Mr & Mrs Obama certainly fit that category...and it makes be a bit nervous about Cruz.
“Is it affirmative action, or just stupid is as stupid does?”
Both are one in the same.
Your guess is correct as to the demographics of her district. Amazing that TEXAS has foisted her upon the nation. You’d expect SJL to come from Massachusetts!
The sad part is that most recent graduates of the American education system don’t have the ability nor desire to call her on it.
That minority contingent in most any locale can produce the same kind of elected idiot.
We had a woman here in Indiana who was was functionally illiterate to begin with and then suffered from senile dementia. At the end of her “career” she basically went from the Capitol building to the mortuary. Then they elected her grandson as replacement who is a double win - black AND muslim.
Sheila Jackson Lee went to Yale University.
Gee whiz, How did she ever get accepted into Yale? I wonder...
“Gee whiz, How did she ever get accepted into Yale? I wonder...”
Perhaps she did well on the oral exam?
I think that’s supped to be Yell Univ.
we have low-info voters and we have low-info representatives...and most of them are Demonrats!
"Hurricane LaQuisha is coming down the coast...oh no it deh-ent oh no it deh-ent oh don't you go there girlfriend hmmm hmmm"
Clearly, she is referring to the Union of the Crowns under King James in which the crowns of England, Scotland and Ireland were united under a single monarch but as to which each jurisdiction retained its own sovereignty -- in other words, she is making the subtle argument that this event was the genesis of the principle of federalism that was later memorialized in writing in our constitution.
In her view, it was not the mere writing down of the concept in the Constitution that was the important part, but rather its earlier implementation under the Union of the Crowns that gave birth to the architecture of our government.
And it was written on Mars.
You give her way too much credit.
And way too much intelligence.
I’ve known lots of people rich and poor, highly educated and not so much. Hands down the most intelligent were the ‘Duck Dynasty” looking rednecks. It ain’t EVEN close. And most of them didn’t have college degrees at all. But they had minds like razors behind the ‘Aw shucks’ facade.
So who is her Republican nominee? Why make fun of the woman if we aren’t going to fight her seat. What a waste of time.
We have all said stupid things in our day, but 99% of us know the astronauts did not plant a flag on Mars. We would maybe like to think our elected reps had at least an ounce of brains. It appears to me, this woman does not have a microgram of grey matter in her head.
Her district is in Texas. But it is made up of clones of her. It is in inner city Houston. A ride through her district tells the story. Do not lump her with our state. She is a obtuse exception.
Actually her demonstrated IQ is somewhat less that the value of the cosmic background radiation in an absolute temperature unit (kelvin).
This jackass is not as bad as the people who return her each election. doubleplusgood......
” - - - Sheila Jackson Lee went to Yale University. - - - “
Are we supposed to be surprised?
No Sheila, you’re thinking of the Emasculation Fornication that freed the slaves.
It's a thing among Ivy League grads to hire their own. You may get one good exec from say Harvard, but he'll soon fill as many positions as he can with idiots from Harvard who can't get a job on their own.
I would guess that she’s never heard of the Union of the Crowns.
Of course, it’s entirely possible she was thinking of the Union of the Crowns of Cleveland and Miami under King James and D-Wade.
She’s using Venus years in this calculation....
That broad is an embarrassment to dumb asses all over the world.
