  • Shelia Jackson Lee continues to be 'special'

    Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX), notorious for, while a member of the House Science Committee, while on a trip to the Mars Pathfinder operations center in California, asking if the Pathfinder had succeeded in taking a picture of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969, as well as for introducing a bill that would make it illegal for any white person to criticize a person of color is retiring from Congress to run for mayor of Houston.

    She is currently involved in a runoff election, which takes place on Saturday, Dec. 9, but in her advertisement that aired on TV, she actually tells voters to head to the polls "on or before December 7th"

    If the citizens of Houston vote her in as mayor they will be getting what they deserve.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Her opponent, however, is a white dude who, so far, has a lead on her....



    mayor.jpg She certainly is special.
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      That many in a run-off? What happens if nobody gets 50%+1?

        That was background information - only two candidates.

        Mayor:

          Don't worry. She'll claim that it wasn't the fact that she gave wrong information that led to a loss, it would have just been evil republicans forcing lower turnout.

              Her spectacular ineptitude is perfectly captured by her ad. If she becomes mayor that sort of negligent stupidity will be the hallmark of her administration.

                Unfortunately, 'Texas' doesn't get a say in this - only the city of Houston, and it's becoming more and more like Austin.

                  As I always say, it doesn't bother me that idiots get elected to public office as much as it bothers me that the people voting for them are even dumber.
                  Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
                  But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
                  Than a fool in the eyes of God

                    Y'all need to export the liberals back to California. By way of riding them out of town on a rail, tarred and feathered!

                              Generally speaking, opinion polls before elections are always bad news for Democrats, and yet they are somehow able to suddenly produce just enough votes on election day to eke out a win.
