Who’s up for Sheila Jackson Lee as Secretary of Homeland Security?

When you’re choosing a replacement for Janet Napolitano and the security level hasn’t exactly set at “Ft. Knox” to begin with, a switch to Sheila Jackson Lee would be more of a lateral move — like a transfer of power from Barney Fife to Paul Blart. This is the change that the Congressional Black Caucus is calling for:

A letter dated July 25 and signed by CBC Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, urges President Barack Obama to consider Jackson Lee for the position formerly held by Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the position. Napolitano resigned earlier this month to become president of the University of California.

“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the nomination letter reads.

The people who might be most terrified by this idea? DHS employees who report to the director.

In a paradox kind of way it would be funny if Jackson Lee accepted a nomination to lead a department she voted against creating.

    I think it’s a great idea. At last a person who ha a no clue how to organize anything. Maybe that will keep them busy enough to stay out of our business.

    Since she asked if she could see the American flag planted by Neil Armstrong, as viewed from the Mars Pathfinder, and since she has consistently voted against all antiterrorist acts, I think she should be given the post.

  • George Meagher

    Having Sheila Jackson Lee replace Janet Incompetano as Homeland Security Secretary would be a good thing, because Lee would finally gain a position in Washington without benifitting from massive vote fraud.

    Screw the Cbc this loser Lee may be worst than a actual terrorist. We have to suffer at the hands of Obama with these terrible cabinet appointments.
