Idiot Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Confuses the Moon Landing with the Curiosity Mars Landing… You Voted for Her, Texas (video)
Posted By Vicki McClure Davidson on August 7, 2012
When Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee confuses the 1969 moon landing with the Curiosity rover Mars landing, is anyone really surprised? At least Rep. Jackson Lee doesn’t think that Guam will tip over and capsize if 8,000 Marines are stationed there like Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) does.
Then again, maybe Sheila does, too.
Ultra-liberal, blathering Democrat congresswoman Jackson Lee is always good for a laugh or a grimace. Remember, she’s the congresswoman from Texas who has confused South Vietnam (which no longer exists) with North Vietnam and Korea. She’s fought long and emotionally on the congressional floor, taking up valuable time from more serious government concerns, fighting for a congressional honor for deceased pop singer Michael Jackson as a “global humanitarian.” She believes that not everyone is entitled to the American dream (such as when she smeared conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh on the congressional floor when he wanted to buy a portion of an NFL team in 2009), but she wants Americans to pay for illegal aliens getting free healthcare via ObamaCare.
She’s a chuckleheaded politician who is infamous for whipping out the race card any time, anywhere — yet, she doesn’t know that the KKK was a Democrat creation, the “terrorist wing of the Democrat party.” The list of her gaffes, blunders, and anti-free market, anti-constitutional remarks goes on and on.
Texas, you voted for this nitwit and entrust her with important economic and government decisions. Her grievous lack of knowledge of contemporary American history and benchmarks of scientific technology is both hilarious and horrifying. Her socialist ties are inexcusable.
One must ask: Why? Why did you give this pinhead such power? Who on Earth in Texas is voting for this Yale graduate bubblehead? Houston, we have a serious problem here.
Audio/video of Limbaugh having a grand time mocking the liberal congresswoman on yesterday’s “Rush Limbaugh Show” radio broadcast — h/t Gateway Pundit:
Transcript from Limbaugh radio broadcast about Jackson Lee’s moronic Moon vs. Mars gaffe — priceless:
…And there were countless thousands of things like that. They had to hit the exact point of entry in the Martian atmosphere to find this landing spot. And they can’t fly it. They’re not in real time. You know, it does become an aircraft once it enters the Martian atmosphere, but they can’t fly it. They don’t have real-time data. Everything was in this computer program with 500,000 lines of code. This was American ingenuity. This was American excellence. This was a most amazing thing.
And then the pictures were almost immediate.
Within ten minutes of this thing hitting the ground they got the first pictures back showing it on the ground, showing one of the wheels. (interruption) What was the question, HR? (interruption) (laughing) HR wants to know if it’s near the flag. Yeah, Sheila Jackson Lee was visiting NASA in Houston. That’s her district. She was in the Johnson Space Center for a previous Mars rover mission and that little rover… This thing is huge by the way. This rover is huge. This rover is larger than a Volkswagen, it looks like. It’s huge, for what it is.
These other rovers were Tinkertoys.
And one of those missions, they brought Sheila Jackson Lee in. She’s a member of Congress. You know, show her the money is being well spent. And, as it’s shown moving around the Martian surface, she said, “Is it gonna go to where the astronauts planted the flag?” Of course, the staff of the Johnson Space Center said, “Okay, we got a woman here who doesn’t have the slightest idea that we’re talking about Mars, not the moon. How do we, A, not laugh; and then how do we answer her question without embarrassing her ’cause there’s a lot of other people here?” (interruption)
Oh, that’s right, folks. I’m sorry. We didn’t build that. We didn’t build the space program. Never mind. We didn’t build that.
No, wait a minute!
We damn well did build it ’cause there aren’t any roads and bridges up there yet.
We damn well did build it!
From Zimbio in 2008 — some of the committees on which Sheila Jackson Lee sits and/or presides over may have changed since then:
We have a Congressional Representative that doesn’t have a technical bone in her body “representing” leading world class engineering & technical industries engaged in Oil & Gas, Energy, Space Travel and Medicine.
Many bloggers have blogged on this particular issue, scoffing at Houston Congressional Representative; Sheila Jackson Lee. Let’s leave the “Bone Head Awards” behind and look at this problem in a more serious light. This is a multifaceted issue that needs to be dealt with in more depth:
First of all Sheila Jackson Lee sets on several Congressional Committees and Subcommittees:
Sheila Jackson-Lee sits on the following committees:
Member, House Committee on Foreign Affairs
Member, Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health
Member, Subcommittee on The Middle East and South Asia
Member, House Committee on Homeland Security
Member, Subcommittee on Border, Maritime, and Global Counter terrorism
Chair, Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection
Member, House Committee on the Judiciary
Member, Subcommittee on Courts, the Internet, and Intellectual Property
Member, Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security
Member, Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law
If Sheila is performing so poorly that she committed these atrocities against her technical constituency in Houston.. Then we need to have a real serious look at how she is performing in her other Committee and Sub-Committee Congressional Positions on other important issues such as Homeland Security, Foreign Affairs, Immigration and the Judiciary. You can bet we are going to be reviewing her voting history on these issues since she sets on these important committees!
Jackon Lee was born in 1950 — she was 19 years old at the time of the historic Moon landing. She reportedly earned a B.A. in political science from Yale University in 1972, followed by a J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1975.
Would love to see her grades.
After I’ve seen Barack Obama’s from Harvard, Columbia, and Occidental, of course.
