Sheila Jackson Lee Strikes Again
One of the few commercials that I found to be pretty good during the Super Bowl was the one presented by a major soft drink company that featured an African American couple. Ok I guess it is safe to say the add was pimping Pepsi. Well of course Congresswoman Lee found the commercial to be racist. Racist? Yes apparently she did not find the spot very humorous and saw some sort of derogatory racial undertone in the message. I think that most of us just found it to be kind of funny. Leave it to Lee to stir up some kind of nonsense. The woman is an ass and no mistake. A stupid ass if I may be so bold. As I have noted before she is an embarrassment to her district, the city of Houston, and the state in general. She probably just wanted (again) to get on television. Poor crazy old bat. I wish she had been defeated in the last election but as a man who likes comedy as much as the next bastard, I do see a silver lining to her retention in office. Incidentally, when the Super Bowl was held in Houston a few years back, (the wardrobe malfunction game), I was doing some bartending at an official event. At said event we were advised that only the aforementioned soft drink could be served as a mixer. I wisely hid a few cans of the leading soft drink behind the bar, both for personal enjoyment and to serve, for a price, to customers who made such a request. It would have been Un American to do otherwise. Oh nearly forgot; it was at a Super Bowl event that I first ran across dumbass Sheila Jackson Lee. She got up and spoke for quite a while until it became obvious to me that the party goers were becoming bored. Old Sheila didn't notice though and just kept droning on for a while longer.
