Question mark because, well, we don’t know what the CD boundaries are going to be in Texas.
The news that Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) will face a Left-side challenge from Maurice Duhon Jr (a Houston political blogger and rapper [under the name of Cornbreadd]) may not seem to be the most relevant news out there. But consider the contrast between Duhon’s statement here:
“I plan to introduce and participate in an evolved and updated political conversation with the residents and business owners of the 18th district and her surrounding areas.”
[Duhon] will host one of the most interestingly titled campaign fundraisers we’ve ever heard of, “WHO and WHAT is an Uncle Tom? A Retrospective Conversation” at 6:30 p.m. next Wednesday, Feb. 29…
That would make for an epic moment in a debate. I might, in fact, even be willing to pay money to see somebody call Sheila Jackson-Lee an Uncle Tom (what’s the equivalent term for a female?) to her face…
PS: I would just like to note for the record – yet again – that Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee is one of the stupidest people in Congress. Not that such a note is really relevant in this context, but I would be up tossing and turning tonight if I allowed an opportunity to point this out slip through my fingers.
