Whatever planet Sheila Jackson comes from, I think we should probably cut off US aid. We don't need any more wacky aliens like her coming to visit us and share their particular vision of planet earth.
Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee - who once famously asked where she could find photos of the American flag that Neil Armstrong planted on Mars - yesterday insisted, in stark defiance of basic facts of history, that "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." She went on to implicitly blame Republicans for this, but Gateway Pundit points out that the incident was far from the dumbest thing Jackson Lee did yesterday. The congresswoman also linked the Tea Party to the KKK in a talk with the NAACP:
And I thank you professor very much. I'm going to be engaging you with those very powerful numbers that you have offered on what the tea party recognizes, uh, or is recognized as. Might I add my own P.S.?All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party.
Jackson is obviously not from Mars - otherwise she would have known all about the flag that Neil Armstrong planted there. My guess is she's not from our solar system. Only someone who can manipulate the space-time continuum would think that North and South Vietnam are existing "side by side.
BTW - you tea partiers better remove your tea party clothing. We wouldn't want to mistake you for Kluxers.
