    I didn't place race or gender in the mix, you did. Liberals always do. Play the victim card over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. It's all the liberals have to go on.

    Being you pretend to lack the ability to compare a sharp third grader to her I'll explain my position very simply. The third grader would have better judgment than she has demonstrated in the past. But then, the same third grader would run circles around most liberals anyway.

    I merely queried. So if not race or gender, why is a Congressperson with a law degree and experience on the HLS Committee not qualified?

    Somebody probably told Sheila that Homeland Security Secretary was like mall security at the Metroplex in Dallas-Fort Worth and she can get 25% off all merchandise and boss people around.

    Re: Corgress woman Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary

    Some of my favorite Shiela Jackson Lee moments:

    The aide jumped from the car and hurried to help the congresswoman. First she opened the rear door so Jackson Lee could deposit a bag and sheaf of papers; then she opened the passenger door. But Jackson Lee took this opportunity to place a phone call, and the aide stood patiently by. After a minute or so of this, Jackson Lee determined she was ready to climb in. But something was wrong. An uncomfortable moment passed as the congresswoman and aide stared at each other. Of course! Jackson Lee's coat and shawl were still on! The aide sprang to remove the garments, and Jackson Lee gave an exasperated look. After Jackson Lee climbed in, the aide gently closed the door, scurried around the rear of the car to the driver's seat, and they were off to the office, a block away. It was such a short trip, Jackson Lee didn't even bother to fasten her seatbelt.
    Jackson Lee got back on board with Continental, but not for long. In May 1999, as Continental flight 1961 prepared to leave Reagan National Airport in Washington, Jackson Lee became flustered when she couldn't find her purse. Thinking she had left it in the boarding area, she went back to search for it. Meanwhile, the plane pulled away from the gate. Moments later, her purse was found onboard. According to aviation lobbyists at the time, Jackson Lee demanded that she be let back on the flight. Airline employees explained that FAA rules prohibit planes from returning to the gate once they've taxied away, but Jackson Lee was unconvinced. She accused the gate staff of racism and demanded to see their supervisor, who was a black woman. Her purse, meanwhile, was unceremoniously dropped out of the cockpit window and ferried back to her.
    Indeed, soon after the FAA issued emergency regulations in the wake of September 11 prohibiting anyone but ticketed passengers in the gate area, aviation sources say Jackson Lee's office placed "multiple phone calls" to the agency demanding a special exemption for her entourage. The request was denied.

    I have brought it up with them.....up front, close and personal like. On several occasions. The reason I am able to.....is due to my ass growing up with and around them since the age of 7.

    Which even goes back to before Jesse Jackson found Jesus and was running around with those Blackstone P Rangers and Jeff Fort.

    But don't worry you can still come with your cleaning equipment.....I'll make sure ya will get to leave with out looking like a popsicle stick.

    Trust me, my Dad is a lawyer in Houston and can verify her certifiability.

    But I'm sure she's a good Liberal.

    In that case, the guy on the back cover of my phone book should be the head of DHS.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.
