Democratic leaders: All hat, no cattle

The Democrat Party is blessed with a cadre of excellent leaders, many of the female calling.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. She recently had a passenger booted so that she could have a first class seat. Jackson Lee has been terrorizing the skies since coming to Congress in 1995.

The Democrat has developed a reputation for making life hell for any clerk, stewardess, or pilot unwilling or unable to make her three-and-a-half-hour flight anything less than glamorous. She takes advantage of federal travel perks to book multiple flights (only to cancel at the last minute and at no charge). She demands an upgrade to premier seats. She expects, in her words, “to be treated like a queen.” The passenger took the photo.

Sure enough, Sheila played the race card.
“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice. This saddens me, especially at this time of year given all of the things we have to work on to help people.”
Jean-Marie Simon, the woman Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee accused of racism is a celebrated photojournalist who helped document human-rights abuses in war-torn Guatemala during the 1980s. She couldn't play the race card because, uh, she's white.

Rep. Maxine Waters. At every LGBT gala she attends she calls for President Trump's impeachment. What does Maxine Waters actually do in Congress? She has passed just three bills in her 27 years. One of the bills was renaming a Post Office.

According to The Los Angeles Times, her family has made more than a million dollars profiting from her government connections. Waters was named the most corrupt member of Congress in 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2011 by the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics.

She encourages supporters to play the race card.

Rep. Frederica Wilson. When President Trump called the widow of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was  killed in an ambush in Niger, Wilson, a Johnson family friend who apparently listened to the call, said Trump told the widow that her husband “knew what he was signing up for.” Wilson within hours went to the press to criticize Trump for what she called insensitive remarks. Trump denied it.

Days later, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, a retired Marine general whose son, a Marine lieutenant, was killed in Afghanistan, defended Trump’s efforts, in a rare appearance in the White House briefing room. During his remarks, Kelly also suggested Wilson has a history of grandstanding or exaggerating, calling her an “empty barrel.”

She, too, played the race card.

Do you see a pattern here? They're all women. They're all black. They all use race to defend their foolishness. Are women embarrassed by them? Are blacks embarrassed by them? Are their constituents proud of them?

Do we let them get away with being idiots because they're women? Because they're liberal? Because they're black?

What an insult to black women. Condoleezza Rice didn't need cowboy hats to get attention. She used her head to hold her brains.
