There are a couple of loons in Congress from the greater Houston area that warrant a small bit of discussion. Of course anyone who reads this blog knows the great respect I hold for Sheila Jackson Lee. A brilliant woman and a pillar of the community. She just has to get her mug on the television so we all will come to understand the unbelievable intelligence of this woman. I jest of course. Jackson Lee is a loon and there is no mistaking it. I am sure that at some point in time, during a lucid moment, she actually has had a good idea. Perhaps. Hard to believe though as she is a dumbass sure.
Now we come to Ron Paul. Dr. Paul is an interesting character and I must admit that he represents the district in which I live. He actually lives just down the road as a matter of fact. Now Paul is in no danger of losing his seat in this neighborhood and barring getting caught with his pants down, will be able to stay as long as he wants. No Democrat or Republican that I know of has any chance of unseating Paul. Now Dr. Paul is not really a Republican at all. He is a Libertarian who runs under the banner of the Elephant for convenience sake. I would not doubt however that if he chose to run as a member of the Libertarian Party that he would still win hands down. It is no doubt that Paul has some good ideas but many of them? Wow!! Alrighty then. Unfortunately the man is a loon. Not a dumbass like S.J. Lee, but probably, when all is considered, more of a nut. While there are plenty of nuts, dumbasses, and fools in the hallowed halls, it may be rare for two people to come from the same immediate area (except in perhaps the Bay Area). Lee and Paul are a couple of nuts. Paul is interesting in a more "Boy this guy is out there" way while Lee is just someone to laugh at. Nutjobs both.
