I was tickled yesterday when I saw that the Congressional Black Caucus had put Houston’s Sheila Jackson Lee forward as their choice of replacement for Janet Napolitano.

I know why. First and foremost, she’s black, which for a group like the CBC is a prerequisite, not competence. Second, she can be relied upon to steadfastly toe the line regardless of facts or sense.

It’s funny because they would value skin color and blind devotion so highly above basic intelligence.

Show me any black politician, in either party, and I will show you someone more intelligent than Lee.

But we know she’ll parrot whatever helps the party and ignore any dissent.

After the media fawned over and Republicans were mostly silent with the actions of President Obama, she stood on the floor and suggested that President Obama received less respect than any other president due to the color of his skin.

I would argue Obama has received more tolerance and has been allowed to get away with more scandals than any white president would have been allowed.

She also was the woman who after Katrina ranted about how it was racist that Hurricanes did not have names that she identified as “black enough”.

Oh, and let’s not forget the time that she was talking questions and when a white constituent had a complaint she took a phone call in the middle of the question and ignored the white woman trying to get answers out of her representative.

I could give examples all day.

The thing that made me chuckle was another instance that shows that Libs value devotion to the dogma over competence.
