Southern Black Female Congresswoman Explains Impeachment

My brain wondered today into a random question: “whatever happened to politicians’ oratory skills?”

Even with all of Obama’s carefully-scripted speeches, not a single one of them have had lasting effect in the public consciousness.

I will give you one example of what oratory skill sounds like, and one from a modern-era politician:

This was all the way back in 1974. Barbara Jordan was little-known other than for some notariety as being the first black Congresswoman to be elected from the Southern states since Reconstruction. But late one evening, while the entire country was glued to their TVs wondering if President Nixon would be impeached, she switched on her mike and delivered an opening statement before the House Judiciary Committee just prior to taking a vote to recommend the whole House proceed with a vote to impeach Richard M. Nixon.

Instead of acerbic partisan bickering, she educated most of America on constitutional law; and in a commanding voice of sincere authority. This 12 minute moment in her life is what she is remembered for and has forever entered her into the annals of famous Texas politicians (unlike this guy), and has also served as a guiding light to many careers of upstart black law students [who are now aging past 60] who remember this moment.

Where has the voice of reason gone?

You have to have a brain to be able to put together coherent sentences like she did. If we look at the makeup of Congress we can see that their is hardly a brain between them.

I think Barbara Jordan's seat is now occupied by Sheila Jackson-Lee, who is basically the complete opposite of everything Barbara Jordan represented as far as conducting herself in public is concerned.

How can you possibly say such a thing when we have such fine examples of intelligence like this?

Well, I have to say I agree with her. And, you know, the current administration has done everything she had made a case is impeachable... why are we waiting?

In the clip above with Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) I could not believe what he said he fears. He has to be joking, right? Geez...I don't think he is.

He needs to be thrown out of office immediately for his stupidity. Does he also think the Earth is flat? Whoever runs against him next time his Congressional seat is up for election only needs to play this clip in a political attack ad.

No he wasn't joking when he asked. But a couple days after this video went viral he tried to walk it back and claim he meant it would economically collapse, even though he made no mention of economics at the time.

People like him, and Sheila Jackson Lee are prime examples of stupidity getting elected, and I do fear that they are true representatives of their constituents.

An island is going to capsize. Dodgy That ignorant buffoon barely had the wits to get the question out in a coherent version of the English language.

Kudos to the admiral for not falling on the floor laughing his ass off. I would love to hear the conversations he had with his staff after he left that hearing.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.
