Sheila Jackson Lee: “You’re blind. Nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah.”

by editor on July 12, 2011

To paraphrase an old saying, there is none so blind as Sheila Jackson Lee.

The Texas Democrat, who attempts to soften her public image by advocating for the visually impaired, has a completely different attitude when it comes to her own staff.

Sheila Jackson Lee taunts Mona Floyd by asking, "How many fingers am I holding up?"

The Washington Times reports on Jackson Lee, which rhymes, coincidentally, with hypocrisy:

…a former top aide to the Texas Democrat, said the lawmaker’s public support for the disabled was nowhere to be found in her own congressional office when it came to the aide’s vision impairment. Mona Floyd, who served as the congresswoman’s legislative director, has monocular vision. She said she was told by Mrs. Jackson Lee in a private conversation within weeks of the hearing, “I don’t care anything about your disability.”

Our liberal friends may choose to interpret “I don’t care anything about your disability” as meaning “I choose not to judge people by their physical disabilities.” But they’d be wrong.

Another time, when Ms. Floyd, a lawyer, brought up her disability, she said another staffer told her the congresswoman had said, “I don’t give a damn about her disability.”

Harsh, Ms. Jackson Lee, harsh.

The accusations were outlined in a sharply-worded lawsuit filed recently in federal court in Washington, which seeks unspecified pay and compensatory and punitive damages. According to the complaint, Ms. Floyd, who did not return phone messages this week for comment, received reasonable accommodations for her vision disability when she went to work for the congresswoman in August 2007. But Ms. Floyd said in the court papers, the congresswoman became dismissive when she returned in February 2010 to become Mrs. Jackson Lee’s legislative director.

Short of starvation, we cannot think of a condition that would induce us to take a job with Sheila Jackson Lee.

“The representative regularly made these types of derogatory comments about the speed of Ms. Floyd’s work, which the representative knew was a result of her vision impairment,” the lawsuit said.

Despite her visual impairment, we trust that Ms. Floyd now sees Sheila Jackson Lee for what she really is.

To George Carlin — ” Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that “.

If Lee represents someone intelligent from her district , who elected her , the mentally or morally impaired ? If she is this stupid , in all of her abundant quotes , how stupid are the rest ? They must have some REALLY bad teachers there. One could go on and on here.

Lee reminds me very much of Oblvious . They both remind me of Peggy West. For a real treat google her. They all remind me of Congressman Johnson– Guam Boy. Again google ( Johnson/Guam ) and laugh your ass off . It goes all the way to the top , with hoards of fellow ORCS waiting in the wings to out ” tard ” one another.

Was he the leftard that thought Guam would tip over from the extra Marines?

Oh wait, it turns out he was only speaking rhetorically, isn’t that how the Ministry of Truth explained it?

I guess his hands were speaking rhetorically too, as they demonstrated the act of turning over. It’s absolutely hilarious. And the Admiral, who was quite obviously stunned by the stupidity, did quite a job of not bursting out in laughter.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee appears to have an ongoing problem with the people who work for her. Per the Huffington Post, she has had eleven chiefs of staff in the past eleven years (while the the average work life for chiefs of staff in the rest of Congress is 6.7 years). It’s reported Sheila can be overbearing and verbally abusive toward those who work for her. So is she a bad boss or just unlucky with the people she hires? Apparently the former.

Yep, her perspective kind of reminds me of this:

The writer did a great job of capturing the twisted mindset of a megalomaniac — which I prefer to call ‘Olivia-itis’ for lack of a better term.

Of course, no one at the Washington Times saw fit to get Lee’s side of the story. They just assumed that the secondhand anecdote they’d heard was 100% accurate, and let their own blind (no pun intended) guesswork do the rest. 😉

Oh, I would expect a knee jerk rebuttal. Kind of makes you sound foolish.

Googling the phrase “stupid things that sheila jackson lee has said”

returns some 45,900 results for the easily amused to go through. In terms of what this does for her politically — some might call it karma. I just want to see how long *you* would work for her.

None of that has any relevance to my comment, Perlcat. Regardless of what you and Rev. Moon want to believe about Lee, the story at the top of this page is little more than unsubstantiated gossip.

How typical that the far right would swarm around it, like flies around a manure pile.

Oh, so you’re all for equal rights for the disabled, unless they conflict with your political aims. Then you attack the victim.

What she said here was indefensible. Therefore, you feel compelled to defend it.

How typical the liberals will defend any useless, worthless, fat and stupid person in or near an office with a “D” in front of their name. No matter the crime, no matter what they did, looney left liberals will lock step to their defense. They will do that as happily as they kill innocent babies,” Hey hey O-liv-e-ay, how many babies did you kill today?”. Chant with me kids!

And, again, where did I “defend” Lee? I merely pointed that you far righters are capering with glee over an unsubstantiated piece of gossip.

If you’re that gullible, that you don’t even bother to check the veracity of such a rumor before repeating it, then it’s small wonder that right wing con artists find you such easy prey.

Why on Earth would you defend SJL? Her reputation is well established. If a GOP elected official behaved the way she does, I don’t think anyone here would lift a finger to defend him/her. Then again Democrats prove time after time that they have no standards. None.

I “defended” nothing—-just pointed out that you’re trying to make a political issue from a piece of idle, unsubstantiated gossip.

That says more about you than it does about Lee. And what it says about you ain’t pretty.

It does not say anything about me. SJL has been in the center of one controversy after the next – all do to her temper and foul disposition. That you would even be participating in this thread defending the indefensible speaks volumes and it ain’t pretty. You can deny defending her all that you want but your presence on this thread belies that denial.

No need, Poppajoe. The point is, none of you are very good at concealing your, shall we say, baser attitudes, no matter how hard you try.
That’s part of what makes you so entertaining: your never-ending (and not very successful) efforts to sound virtuous, when you’re doing little more than spewing gossip, untruths and childish taunts. 😉

That is hilarious coming from someone who spends what seems to be most of her waking hours feverishly pounding on a keyboard to bang out non sequiturs, falsehoods, and just plain ignorant statements. In the past few days you have denied that many women experience remorse post abortion, refused to accept that Muslim women are second class citizens within their own culture, that John Lennon grew up, and SJL is a mean bitch. You deny these things when all evidence points to the contrary. That is why peering into your deranged mind is so fascinating. You are a marvel of psychiatry (or pharmacology) that you are able to hold a job or at least you claim that you do.

Nah, it doesn’t take that long to debunk most of what passes for conventional wisdom on these boards. I do most of it in between other computer and household tasks. 😉
**********************

**********************
Not true. I never denied that some women experience depression or remorse after an abortion. But I also refuse to use that as an excuse for letting Big Brother take control over their uteruses. Let’s face it: some gun owners experience depression or remorse when a child or other family member accidentally shoots himself with their guns. But do you think that’s a valid reason to make firearms ownership illegal?
***********************
refused to accept that Muslim women are second class citizens within their own culture
***********************
That’s a very broad statement, Sidekick, since there are many different Muslim cultures. Are you talking about Moroccan Muslims? Or Turkish Muslims? Or Barb’s Muslim neighbor, whose family is completely westernized? See, that’s one of the problems of trying to stereotype Muslims: they’re as varied as Christians. It makes no more sense to claim that all Muslim women are “second class citizens” than it would to claim that all Christian women obey their husbands and keep silent in church. 😉
********************
that John Lennon grew up,
********************
I never claimed that John Lennon didn’t grow up. I just think it’s highly amusing that the far right is accusing Lennon of becoming a far right wing evangelical Christian before he died, when he isn’t here to defend himself. 😀
**********************
and SJL is a mean bitch.
**********************
No, I made no comment of any kind about Lee. I merely pointed out that, as usual, you righties are practically salivating to repeat a piece of thirdhand gossip, without first bothering to verify it. 😀
************************

***************************
One reason I’m good at the job I do is that I’m capable of sifting through lies and irrelevancies, and using my own observation to get at the truth.

I’m sorry, Sidekick, but every single one of your claims above is untrue, most likely because you have a tendency to confuse reality with wishful thinking. And that’s why it takes so little time and effort to refute your ravings. 😉
