Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is now in Houston for recovery and rehab. We all wish her well. Meanwhile, local radio shows have been abuzz, asking listeners when they think congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will sneak into Memorial for a photo opp.
Congresswoman Lee "inherited" the Barbara Jordan/Mickey Leland seat, and frankly she's an embarrassment. But I don't think she deserves the obsessive hatred embodied by certain talk show hosts such as Michael "Dingle" Berry. Yes, she's an idiot, a walking, talking malapropism, but so are many other congresscritters. At least congresswoman Lee is usually in Houston talking directly to her constituents, instead of sleazing her way through the inner circles of the DC elite.
(I think Lee will sneak into Memorial by the end of next week for a photo opp.)
