Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke.

Moonbattery has a rundown of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee's stupidity:
Readers have encountered this liberal “voice of reason” many times before, as for example when she called for American citizens to turn in their firearms, when she established herself as the Queen of Nastiness, when she took a snooze on the House floor, when she brought a phony doctor to advocate socialized medicine at a town hall meeting, when she diverted Islamic terror hearings into an attack on Christians, when she denounced a bill that would give closer scrutiny to suffocating regulations, when she proclaimed that the ObamaCare penalty is not a penalty, when she tried to arm vociferous American enemy Hugo Chavez, when she went completely off the rails while going to bat for Islam, when she rudely took a phone call while a subject was asking her a question at a town hall meeting, when she revealed in 2010 that South Vietnam was still in existence, when she hijacked Michael Jackson’s hearse, when she moved boldly to terminate freedom of speech, and of course when she referred to the American flag Neil Armstrong planted on Mars.
