Congressional Pillar since 1995, Sheila Jackson Lee has long been a fan of the theatrical speech, occasionally taking advantage of props, but almost always just fully dripping with drama.

Yesterday, without the I’m With Her pin, but with two rows of pearls, Sheila Jackson Lee decided to stand and kneel, or stand by kneeling—you know what, we’ll let you guys decide.Social justice calisthenics.

On the Congressional Floor, Sheila Jackson Lee kneeled and stood while saying, “I kneel in front of the flag and on this floor. I kneel in honor of the First Amendment. I kneel, because the flag is a symbol for freedom. I kneel, because I’m going to stand against racism. I kneel, because I will stand with those young men, and I’ll stand with our soldiers, and I’ll stand with America, because I kneel.”

Yeah… Might we recommend that if her constituents insist on giving her yet another term, they pass around the collection plate to get her a thesaurus?

Just sayin’.
