Sheila Jackson Lee thinks America’s Constitution is 400 years old

Ah, yes, the year was 1614. Eleven years earlier, a bloody war of independence had been waged against the British crown.

Sound confusing? It should. The Congress member who floated the idea that the Constitution is 400 years old — the Lone Star State’s own Sheila Jackson Lee — is pretty confused (h/t Washington Free Beacon).

Luckily, there is a video recording of her comments made today on the House floor, so no one can claim that she was misunderstood or that her comments were made out of context.

By the way, in case you’re wondering, this dim bulb, has a degree from Yale, which says more about Yale than it does about her.
