Oh No She Didn't!

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) hosted one of them fancy town hall parties all the other lawmakers get to throw. But things got boring for Sheila when it turned out all these "voters" only wanted to ask "questions." Luckily, the Congresswoman was spared a fate of irreparable boredom when her phone rang. But, instead of acting like a normal human being and ignoring it, she acted like a normal American and answered it. But, instead of saying "hold up, let me call you right back," she actually stayed on the phone.



Did she really disregard a constituent so blatantly? Did she really reinforce the stereotype of lawmakers being selfish fools who really only work to get themselves re-elected? Did she really just broadcast her own indifference on the most important issue in American politics?



Yes, in fact, she did.
