Members of Congress aren't responsible for their staffer's crimes or other problems if they didn't know about them. That said, Jackson-Lee is one of the stupidest members of Congress and that's all on her. Anyone voting for her is as big an idiot as she.

skullkrusher: Cornbreadd? Really?


Dear fellow Americans,

I am more than a mere Rapper, I am a man with a firm hold on his faculties and abilities. For years, I have allowed others to govern this land and its great citizens. That governance, has refused to emulate the qualities of prudence, rationalism, and logic.

While I once focused my energies and talents towards entertaining my fellow Americans and those familiar with my artistic craft, I now am forced to reduce the focus I have given to the arts of music, poetry, prose and my other whims of juvenilia.

I understand that in this age of sound-bites and eye-catching headlines, it may be fun and interesting to focus on a "rapper" persona, but please always be mindful; I purposely stepped away from my art and music out of respect for the current state of the American Citizen. Rather than formulate words to rhyme and inspire others to support the improvement of these great United States, I believe it is time to formulate thought and insight that will provide the needed legislation to facilitate such improvement rather that wait for another person to have a political epiphany.

Though I support this articles relevance and its addition to our TX 18th District and national conversation, please allow me to say this; I am no mere "rapper", I am a man whom happens to rap very well. I am a man of many talents and convictions. I am also a licensed Texas REALTOR, published poet, loving son, and avid book reader. I stand before you a man and a candidate with a firm hold to my character, integrity, and actions.

Although I am greatful for the media exposure and the introduction of our MDfor18 Campaign into the political dialoge, with these sincere words, I hope you can look beyond the political "giddyness" of headlines such as,
"Jackson Lee to face challenge from rapper Cornbreadd in November" and realize the true weight and reality of our nation's present social and economic state and the immense amount of gravitas and foresightedness we will need in order to examine the question of whether the solutions for a better tomorow and a better America have resided within the mind and heart of the current (TX) 18th Dist. U.S. Representative since 1995, or if those solutions and innovative ideals will be found in the lesser known INDEPENDENT Candidate, Maurice Duhon, Jr.

Please feel more than welcome to familiarize yourself with this Congressional MDfor18 Campaign.



DOn't judge a book by it's cover, or a person by their label.

damn, thanks for that. I was actually going to come back and say that even a dude who calls himself Cornbreadd is probably a better option than SJL until I saw your post. You just confirmed it.

Ouch. Ok, that's unacceptable. But, give the guy a break. At least he didn't say that he reads...everything, or that he can see the Gulf of Mexico from his porch.

Q. "Mr. Cornbreadd, what are some of your favorite rap lyrics?"

A. "Um, all of them. I've fiercely spit every rhyme that has come in front of me over the years"

don't get me wrong, cornbread is delicious. I also rather enjoy Chicken Tikka Masala but I'm not gonna make that my name.

If I had a huge debt burden put on me in the course of gross governmental malfeasance that is often echoed in the poor attention to the tax responsibilities of the loudest voices for higher taxes on the other members of their own tax bracket while someone posts a reply that indicates Fark speaks for the nation...

Sheila Jackson Lee is every stereotype of the asshole self-important politician that exists. Houston would be better off picking their representatives randomly out of the phone book.
 
2012-02-27 08:16:13 PM  
Oh right, it's Texas. That explains it.
 
2012-02-27 08:36:12 PM  
Certainly not a fan of Mrs. Jackson-Lee and if I lived in her Houston district, I would never vote for her, but how is her former staffer's tax liability her responsibility, or a result of her actions???

You can get an idea of the uninformed voters of her district when you find that she's the best representatitive they've had in decades. They had Mickey Leland who was great at increasing personal PR by flying off to Africa for charity while doing nothing for his district. When he died on one of those charity missions, I commented to my wife that the only way they could have worse representation would be to elect that idiod Craig Washington to replace Leland. They elected Washington. After a couple of terms Lee, a former Houston Councilwoman ran against Washington and won.

Duhon (Cornbreadd) is trying to put a good Representative in that District, but he has no chance. Lee is going to own that seat until she retires.
