From The Washington Free Beacon:
Apparently MSNBC host Chris Matthews and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took the same course in American history.Matthews appeared Thursday on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” to discuss an op-ed penned by Charles Koch in the Wall Street Journal. Koch’s piece centered around restoring a free society, which prompted Matthews to discuss what he believed to be Thomas Jefferson’s hypocrisy when writing the words “all men are created equal.”The “Hardball” host, however, botched his American history when he claimed those words were penned in the 20th century.“I first thought about whether he thought about the liberty of Sally Hemings,” Matthews said. “Weren’t you thinking that? I was thinking that. I mean Jefferson said beautiful things and probably the most important sentence in our history, ‘All men are created equal.’ Probably the most important sentence ever spoken in the 20th century or many centuries.”A little history lesson for Mr. Matthews: The Declaration of Independence was written in 1776. That’s the 18th century.
Watch Matthews’ history gaffe:
Sheila Jackson-Lee Thinks That The Constitution Is 400 Years Old
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old Wednesday on the House floor, which would mean it was signed in 1614.
“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said.
That would be seven years after Jamestown, Virginia became America’s first permanent English settlement.
Lee is off by only 173 years. It was adopted on 17 September 1787.
“Did the Mars Rover take any images of the flag Neil Armstrong planted on Mars?”
- Sheila “Weapons Grade Stupid” Jackson-Lee, which caused her colleague, Vernon Ehlers, to sigh and state, “We don’t teach enough science in this country.”
“Hurricane names are too ‘lily-white’. All racial groups should be represented and federal weather officials should try to be inclusive of African-American names.”
- Sheila “But, You’d Better Not Give Any Cat 4s or 5s African Names Because That Would Be Racist” Jackson-Lee
“All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party.”
- Sheila “I See Racists Everywhere Except When They Are Robert Byrd Democrats” Jackson-Lee
“I am so glad that we won the Vietnam War. Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace.”
- Sheila “Dora da Explora” Jackson-Lee
“I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen.”
- Sheila “Queen of Racism” Jackson-Lee
“What am I a prostitute? Am I your prostitute? You can’t prostitute me.”
- Sheila “I Ain’t No ‘H0″ Jackson-Lee, according to her staff
“Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked — that are not enforced, that are straw purchased and they come into places even that have strong gun laws. Why? Because we don’t have sensible gun legislation.”
– Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee, 9 April 2013
“Don’t you let them tell you that Congresswoman Jackson-Lee’s braids are too tight in her hair and that has something to do with justice and equality and empowerment of the American people. Don’t let them fool you on that [applause].”
- Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee
Oh, oh, Sheila… Oh Sheila
Oh, oh, Sheila… Oh, Sheila
Sheila, she the shat, but she not ready for the world, No!
She the type of chick make bruthas run around in circles so I made out fast.

‘Cuz me and my boys laugh our bloody bums off at the hours and hours and hours of the tapes of you that can only be said to make Jessica Simpson, Snooki, Jar Jar Binks, etc., look like Rhodes Scholars.
Oh… Honey, baby, 1-2-3 (yeah, yeah),

My apologies to J.Holiday & Ready For The World.
More fun, fun, fun with idiots...
It’s true. Cory Booker drove her to Hawaii after he turned 17. After that, they drove to Guam to help Hank Johnson tip it over. After that, they drove to Mars and took selfies in front of the American flag that Neil Armstrong planted.
Phew….what a trip.

It’s true. Cory Booker drove her to Hawaii after he turned 17 as they waved to Barack Obama, who was riding on the Intercontinental Railroad built by Abraham Lincoln, but first they visited the Louisiana swamp with Cynthia McKenney to pay tribute to the 5,000 black men Bushitler executed and dumped there during Katrina. After that, they drove to Guam to help Hank Johnson tip it over. After that, they all inhaled helium (whose supply is critically low and nearing a national emergency according to Tippin’ Guam) and floated over to visit the two Vietnams, living side-by-side, in peace. After that, they drove to Mars and took selfies in front of the American flag that Neil Armstrong planted.
Phew….what a trip.

The itinerary had a few holes in it.

Ah, yes. I stand corrected. But a minor quibble on your timeline. They didn’t waive to Obama until the road trip from Selma to Birmingham after his parents met and miraculously had a 4 year old baby born. That was their second road trip.

“What happened in Selma, Alabama and Birmingham also stirred the conscience of the nation…This young man named Barack Obama…came over to this country. He met this woman…(who) had a good idea there was some craziness going on because they looked at each other and they decided…it might…be possible for us to get together and have a child. There was something stirring across the country because of what HAPPENED (PAST TENSE) in Selma, Alabama… So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don’t tell me I’m not coming home to Selma, Alabama.”- Senator Barack Obama4 August 1961: Barack Obama’s birthday7 March 1965: First Selma March- Resist We Much on March 12, 2014 at 10:28 PM
