|Houston's Elected Moonbat, "The Queen" of Gaffes.|
Politicians on both sides of the aisle have provided us with gaffes worthy of cringes and guffaws.
However, those done by representatives from the left seem to provide some of the ones that leave us wondering if they ever paid attention in school. Then there are some so bad that we wonder if their teachers paid any attention in school.
Don't misconstrue this statement. Paul Broun from Georgia made a pretty ridiculous statement about the Earth being on 6,000 years old despite glaring scientific evidence to the contrary, such as fossils and mummified bodies.
However, none seem to be as bad as those from the left.
First you have Hank Johnson. He actually believed that the island of Guam could tip over. The debate was over the size of the island and if it could support more US forces. He stated, in session, that he feared more US military forces on the island would cause it to capsize. His geography and science teachers should be slapped, repeatedly. So should the idiots who voted for Johnson.
This is the same guy who wants to amend the US Constitution in order to restrict the First Amendment to prevent anybody who works for or invests in a corporation from having free speech, free press, or the right to petition redress of grievances. His argument is that "corporations aren't people". No, they are not. However, they are owned by people. In fact, there are several Limited Liability Corporations (LLCs) that are owned by only one or two people. These business owners and their hired staffs should have the very same individual rights as any other individual adult citizen. However, collectivist-oligarch Hank Johnson is too stupid to understand that. So are the constituents who voted for him.
Then you have the "Queen of Stupid", Sheila Jackson-Lee, the representative from Houston, TX.
"I am a queen and demand to be treated like a queen," she once said. Well, Sheila, if you are a queen, you may want to return to your country. There is no nobility here in the US.
Another geography genius, Sheila believes that Vietnam is just like Korea. I guess she failed to pay attention when she was in her 20s. She honestly believes that there are two Vietnams. "Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for a better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they are living side by side."
When Obama ended manned missions for NASA and killed the shuttle program, Sheila stated,"Many of us in Congress have been calling on the Administration to articulate a bold mission for NASA. It seems that the President is answering that call. I wholeheartedly support his vision for going back to the moon, and from there to worlds beyond ."
In open an session televised on CSPAN, Sheila outed an undercover CIA agent. This demonstrates that she cares less about national security.
Sheila's latest flare-up of foot-in-mouth disease aggravated by rectal-cranial inversion syndrome concerns the looming "fiscal cliff". Sheila advocates going back to the good ol' days of the "Clinton rates and spending". However, she failed to do her math and figure out the difference between Obama's proposals and what the House under the leadership of Newt Gingrich pushed into action. Then she stated that there was a budget surplus of $5,600,000,000,000 in 2000-2001. She evidently failed basic arithmetic as well as geography, history, and civics. FY2000's surplus was $237 billion. FY2001's was $127 billion. That adds up to $364 billion, less than 1/10th of Sheila's claim.
How does she keep getting re-elected? There are several hypotheses.
Hypothesis 1: Voter fraud. Her supporters and key campaign personnel want somebody dumber than a ventriloquist's doll to be their puppet. So they have the dead vote. They have supporters from outside the district vote. They vote twice.
Hypothesis 2: Her constituents purposely want somebody dumber than them to represent them. Perhaps they think that such a representative would be easier to control in order to garner better representation. However, that backfires. She doesn't represent them. She represents whatever the party tells her to represent. What is worse, is that she opens her mouth and constantly reveals that she doesn't know anything about the subjects she is supposed to represent either on.
Hypothesis 3: Her constituents are even more stupid than she is. That should be scary. Texas is one of the top states in education. If this is the product, we are all doomed. Perhaps they think that putting her in office will magically change history. Perhaps they believe she can magically cast a vote and change the rules of mathematics.
Hypothesis 4 is an amalgamation of all of the previous three. Half of her constituents want an idiot they can control to represent them. The other half are too stupid to know she is a complete idiot. Their numbers aren't enough to tip an election in Texas. So they have their dead relatives and illegals with faked and stolen IDs vote for Sheila.
Despite the fact that her votes do affect the outcomes of legislation, Sheila does provide hours of laughter. Many comedians work hard to "play stupid". Here we have comic relief in one who isn't playing.
