Living near the Houston area I've seen how useless Sheila Jackson Lee was on Houston City council. She was voted in only because of her race in my opinion.

I can't believe the following but it's true.

Prior to the 110th Congress, Jackson Lee served on the House Science Committee and on the Subcommittee that oversees space policy and NASA
Per Wikipedia.

She is also the meanest person in Congress

In 2011 she was reported to have one of the highest staff turnovers in Congress and to be one of the worst bosses. The Huffington Post and Houston Chronicle reported that she had gone through 11 chiefs of staff in 11 years.[17][18] In 2011 she was named as one of the "worst bosses in Washington" by The Daily Caller.[19] The Huffington Post stated that "Jackson Lee regularly appears on Washingtonian magazine's list of the “Best and Worst of Congress” as the “meanest” member of House of Representatives."[17][20] That reputation as the worst boss on Capitol Hill continued; in 2012 Washingtonian again listed her as the meanest member of the House,[21] a report in 2013 concluded that "the veteran Texas Democrat had the highest turnover rate for all of Congress over the past decade."[22]


I could go on but that's enough for now.



Heh heh! I periodically listen to Michael Berry -- I'm sure living in the Houston area you're familiar with him. He has some truly hilarious SJL videos on YouTube. Every time I hear her use the term "vunnahbulls" for "vulnerables" I absolutely lose my sh**.

Missed one:
Maxine Waters is pretty sure that Vladimir Putin Invaded North Korea.

Yeah, they are an embarrassment.
And its disturbing that our country is in their hands.



OMG, that's right! I totally forgot about that one!

Nice catch!

Hank Johnson's concern that troops in Guam could "tip the island over," demonstrating that the man believes islands are nature's rafts, is still one of the most profoundly stupid statements anyone in any public leadership role has ever voiced.


Honestly -- not trying to make excuses for Representative Johnson, but he was clearly impaired (alcohol?) when he said that.

Still, unbelievably dumb!




I'm not sure, if you were trying to make excuses for him, that this would qualify. LOL


That was a post that made ME look dumb! Every once in awhile I would take one back...

That's one.

Patty Murray, WA. Hands down dumbest.


She's my Senator and I have met her a few times. She is as dumb as a gym sock, but there are about 2 million lily-White soccer moms living between Olympia and Everett who are going to vote for her even after she's dead!

Yes, Michael Berry always has a handful to say about politics from local to the president.



Another confusing message by Sheila Jackson Lee:


As usual, Sheila Jackson Lee took to the House Floor and confused people, demanding unemployment insurance payments for the employed. “Let us vote to provide for unemployment insurance for working men and women so that faces across America will not have the tear of desperation on their faces.” Sheila Jackson Lee, December 12, 2013

Hurricane naming

Jackson Lee complained in 2003 that storm names were too white. "All racial groups should be represented," she said, and asked officials to "try to be inclusive of African-American names."




Lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LMAO! Oh God I forgot about that!

Too funny.

What is a "black name"?

Let me see...

How about Hurricane Shaneiqua?

Well...this is quite a buffet...

“These are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.” ~ Diana DeGette (D, CO)

I think she's been out in the forest eating the ferns or something...

I give you the Democrat brain trust, Sheila Jackson Lee…

Representative Lee has stated that the Constitution is 400 years old, North and South Vietnam are living side-by-side, and once asked NASA for a picture of the American flag on Mars.

Congress' Dumbest Member: Obama Already Fixed the Border

More Pearls of Wisdom from Congress' Dumbest

And then there’s Nancy “Mimi” Pelosi…

I didn’t know whether to include the truly dumb Nancy Pelosi on this list because she very well be mentally ill or suffering from dementia, but whatever the cause of her stupidity, she has stated that unemployment benefits create more jobs than any other program, when shilling for Obama’s now-failed “stimulus” bill claimed that every month the bill wasn’t passed 500 million Americans lost their jobs, once famously stated that she supported natural gas as an alternative to fossil fuels, and of course, the granddaddy of them all – we need to pass the bill (Obamacare) to know what’s in it.

Nancy Pelosi -- Just Dumb or Mentally Ill?

Meet Maxine Waters, mental midget…

With the exception of Barney Frank, no single politician was more directly to blame for the 2007/08 financial crisis. Along the way, she has repeatedly had to correct herself after slipping and using the terms “socialize” and “socialism” in relation to banks and other private sector entities, has continued to call Republicans (and everyone else who’s not a black liberal) “scumbags”, and stated that she has to march because her mother couldn’t have an abortion (?).

Maxine Waters: The IQ of a Tree Frog

Honorable Mention: Hank Johnson… This truly dumb waste of humanity claimed that if Guam had too many people on it the whole island would tip over and everything would fall into the ocean.

You can't make this stuff up, folks!

Feel free to add to this list of intellectual microbes.



In terms of dumb, corrupt and all around vile...Pelosi
Biggest R tard award Maxine Waters

I do not think that the US has cornered the market on stupid politicians. I would challenge all who read this to list the dumbest reps in their respective countries and provide evidence. While the US may have a lead, at present, I have every faith that other countries will soon be challenging the US lead.


It seems impossible because US is leading everywhere, at every moment!


You ain't kidding. I love seeing my country strong again. When we have a powerful leader we are still the best.

I agree with that, but what our UK friends often fail to recognize is that this massive country varies in culture and demographics from region to region. There are some Congressional Districts out there that are definitely not representative of the overall demographics of the US.

Take Sheila Jackson Lee's TX-18. The residents of that hilariously gerrymandered district (look at a map) are 40% black, 40% Hispanic, and about 17% White. The college graduation rate is 50% lower than the national average. The median housing value is half the national average. The median income is 35% lower than national average.

You get the point. You can call me racist or elitist or whatever, but there's NO WAY a Sheila Jackson Lee gets elected in a district like mine (WA-2) where it's 90% White, well above the national college grad rate, etc...


Maybe her district will have too many voters for its unstable gerrymandered shape and tip over into the ocean.

Sorry we got that already covered too. Guido Westerwelle was a politician for the FDP and openly gay. He died a few years ago though. I guess you could try to get the lesbian politician trophy though.
