Ignorant Democrat Shiela Jackson Lee Thinks U.S. Constitution Is 400 Years Old (Video)Topics: Political News and commentaries
Representative Sheila Jackson Lee gives us a peek into the depth of her knowledge of American history ... and there's clearly not much 'there' there. She 's either really bad at math (2014-1788=226 years old), failed to learn American history at Yale (the Constitution was adopted in 1787, ratified in 1788, and went into effect on March 4, 1789), stupid as hell, or ... more likely, all three:
As a commenter at NRO aptly noted, we need to put this into its proper perspective. Her comments weren't extemporaneous remarks. Instead, someone, probably not her, wrote a draft of her speech, and probably several drafts. No one involved in that process, including Sheila Jackson Lee, had any clue as to just how wrong her comment was.
That is, indeed, an INCREDIBLE amount of stupid ... and it speaks volumes about both her and her staff.
