    I'm all for it. It would make the Obama administration a total farce in a way that would be impossible to ignore.

    There's been a white caucus since the country's inception. Is there a women's caucus?

    I'm guessing that before today you'd never heard of cerebral titan Sheila Jackson Lee. Type "Sheila Jackson Lee is a" into the Google search bar, and see what pops up.

    Jackson Lee is dumb. And venal. And a race-hustler. Doesn't have anything to do with her being black or a woman; she's dumb. Has declared herself a freed slave. Doesn't realize that NASA's never put an astronaut on Mars. Thinks hurricane names are racially biased.

    Re: Corgress woman Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary

    From Front Page magazine:

    ...In February, Congress was debating federal spending. And Sheila Jackson-Lee got up to make her contribution denouncing a Pepsi commercial as racist. Other things that Jackson-Lee has denounced as racist include hurricanes, a balanced budget and secret service agents. Crying “Racism” is actually her only life skill.

    ...Last year, Lee tried to denounce the Tea Party as racist at an NAACP meeting, but in the middle of it she forgot the word for sheets, and condemned them for wearing, “uh, clothing with a name.” Which is exactly how most of the rest of Congress refers to her.

    Not only has Jackson-Lee voted against every national security measure she could think of, but she actually goes out looking for dictators to support. She invited Assad to speak in Texas, urged F-16 parts sales to Hugo Chavez, called for an end to economic sanctions against Saddam and participated in an event conducted by an Iranian regime front group against military action on Iran. She might be considered a walking security risk, if she actually knew anything.

    Sheila Jackson Lee: Racist and Moron | FrontPage Magazine

    At the link you can read about her praising victory in Vietnam and just a little about her association with Enron. The article asks, "Should the dumbest woman in congress, who began her career serving a corrupt corporation, and has a 3 percent rating from Citizens Against Government Waste, who can’t tell a planet from a satellite, doesn’t know what the Bill of Rights says and uses her position to denounce commercials she doesn’t like from the House floor, really even be in Congress?"

    Now, the question is whether she should be Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

    NO.
