Sheila! Jackson!! Lee!!! In freakin' INDIA!!!!

So we were watching CNN this morning, catching up on world events.

There's a story about the son of Martin Luther King Jr. laying a wreath at the memorial of Mahatma Ghandi, the progenitor of social change through nonviolent means.

The camera pans the King delegation, standing solemnly, hands clasped before them.

There's a cutaway shot of the Ghandi memorial.

Then there's a closer shot, from a slightly different vantage point, of the King delegation and ... BAM ... there she is -- Sheila Jackson Lee, US representative from the Fightin' 18th Congressional District of Texas ... in INDIA!!

Sheila Jackson Lee. Hot Damn. She's a force of nature, blessed with an uncanny ability to detect the presence of news cameras, no matter where they are, no matter what the news event, come hell or high water, and then suddenly appear right in their viewfinders.

For her dogged tenacity and her irrefutable gift of self promotion, we salute her.

She is, we dare say, one of a kind.

Not to obsess about appearance.... but does it seem like she has put on a LOT of weight over the past couple of years?

you're a fattist?

the new HD technology adds 40 lbs. so that must be what you're seeing.

Ahhhhh, THAT is it!

I am gonna start blaming my own extra pounds on the new technology. :)
