Houston voters stay sipping that syrup-- even in the voting booth. Listen as Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee drops knowledge about the "two Vietnams." We had some LOA staffers hit the history books. As it turns out, North and South Vietnam were united 35 years ago.
For those keeping score, Jackson Lee previously demanded that hurricane names be more ethnically inclusive to sound less "lily white," asked a NASA official if the Mars Pathfinder found the flag planted by Neil Armstrong (on the moon), and got herself banned from Continental Airlines for screaming at airline staff about the whereabouts of her seafood meal. She should quit Congress and host Comic View.
