Ouch!

Unless she's using that erroneous knowledge to decide on laws I don't really care.
Slow news day.

It's not exactly outrageously wrong, on the usual scale of DC elected officials.

At least she didn't refer to her home state as "Planet Houston"

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee

That's all the information I needed.

As moronic as this lady is, I feel the need to point out that the democrat side confines it's blatant stupidity to her and one or two others in the entire Congress.  The other side, instead of quarantining the infection, is holding chicken-pox parties.

What happened to Texas that prevents it's national level politicians from being stupid, evil, or both?

Calling someone a moron while not using the correct form of  "Democrat/democratic", priceless.

I don't think she said that at all...

"Frankly, maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman, and others for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a Constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not," she said Wednesday on the House floor.

I think she's saying that we've been here in the US being a successful society for 400 years or so, I don't see her putting a hard date on the Constitution itself.

Then again, she really could have been saying that, but I think she just farked up what she meant to say. I can't keep tack of these people anymore though.

Reading what she actually said, the "400 years" may have referred to the establishment of the New England colonies as a precursor to the formation of the United States -- she didn't actually say the Constitution is 400 years old.

Jamestown, in what would later become the Colony/Commonwealth of Virginia, was (first?) founded in 1607.

It sure sounds like she was saying that we've operated under the constitution for 400 years, but that could easily be a simple verbal flub, not something she actually believes. I always thought Quayle caught more grief than he deserved for 'potatoe'.

If she actually believes this, then yes, that's a problem in an elected official. I would like to vote for people who have a reasonably good understanding of the structure and history of the government they'll be working within.

Are you kidding? So-called "liberal" folks, in this thread, are laughing at her - she's been an idiot for as long as she's been in the public's eye. But, the idea that conservatives "ostracize" their crazy is amusing, given just how many of them are not only not ostracized, but actively pursued as presidential candidates.

The other poster a few under me phrased what I was trying to say better... I was trying to say what (s)he did, but (s)he did a better job of it.

Personally, I think every legislator should have a mandatory 6 month training period before each new term, they might write less unconstitutional bullshiat that way.

And there are 57 states and the earth is 6000 years old and I was for it before I was against and tides come in and tides go out, you can't explain that and, well you get the point, people say stupid things and people make mistakes. or something like that.

Exactly. This is not in the top 5 most idiotic things she's said.

She also has an astronomical turnover rate compared to the rest of the House. I've never heard anyone say her reputation as a twunt wasn't 100% deserved.

/I wish the Texas Democrats could find someone to replace her

this is patently false, name one active (in office) Republican politician that is certifiably crazy.
It seems that you dirty Libs are just in such disagreement (policy wise) with Republicans, that there has to be a reason that everyone doesn't think like you, in this case, you resort to ad hominem attacks.

The first colonial constitution was adopted by Connecticut in 1639 - not too far off the 400 year mark.

Do I think she meant that? Hells, no.
