Rush Limbaugh Mocks Sheila Jackson Lee As ‘Curiosity’ Touches Down on Mars (Audio)

As the Curiosity landed on Mars Monday morning Rush Limbaugh had fun mocking Houston Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) on her previous statements.

From the Rush Limbaugh website:

Within ten minutes of this thing hitting the ground they got the first pictures back showing it on the ground, showing one of the wheels. (interruption) What was the question, HR? (interruption) (laughing) HR wants to know if it’s near the flag. Yeah, Sheila Jackson Lee was visiting NASA in Houston. That’s her district. She was in the Johnson Space Center for a previous Mars rover mission and that little rover… This thing is huge by the way. This rover is huge. This rover is larger than a Volkswagen, it looks like. It’s huge, for what it is.

And one of those missions, they brought Sheila Jackson Lee in. She’s a member of Congress. You know, show her the money is being well spent. And, as it’s shown moving around the Martian surface, she said, “Is it gonna go to where the astronauts planted the flag?” Of course, the staff of the Johnson Space Center said, “Okay, we got a woman here who doesn’t have the slightest idea that we’re talking about Mars, not the moon. How do we, A, not laugh; and then how do we answer her question without embarrassing her ’cause there’s a lot of other people here?” (interruption)

Oh, that’s right, folks. I’m sorry. We didn’t build that. We didn’t build the space program. Never mind. We didn’t build that.

No, wait a minute!

We damn well did build it ’cause there aren’t any roads and bridges up there yet.

We damn well did build it!

    Poor Ms. Lee is not used to being around people whose job it is to have answers.

  • SoLongSong

    As much as I hate frivolous government spending, I for one don’t think that NASA and the space program was any such thing. The nerve! Sending out former NASA folks to make Muslims feel better about themselves – remember that?

    Remember instead when we strived to and achieved being the best in the world? Landing on the moon first (the MOON moon, not the Mars moon)? Kennedy would not recognize what the democrat party has become.

    I MISS having a president who actually loved the country over which he presided. This going on right now feels like an all-oppressive dictatorship, affecting every facet of my life. SMOTHERING.

    Answer to Sheila Jacksons query re: flag: “No. No it’s not near the flag.”

    Then SILENCE.

  • jorgen

    Sheila Jackson Lee certainly didn´t build this – or anything else for that matter.

    This is what we have governing us. I realize she, and others just as dense, represent a constituency as dumb as they are, but, really, do they need to be represented? They seem to like this idea of the government just taking care of them so the only words they need to speak are “gimme” and where’s the “D” after names on the ballot. That is the sum total of their intelligence. I have known people who can’t come in out of the rain but can quote you chapter and verse every freebie they can get from the government and how to dget it.

  • Superkev

    If I had been there when SJL uttered those famous words I damn sure would not have held my tongue. I would have said something like”Sorry. but there’s no flag there” then let her correct me about it and argue that she watched it on television.

    So we got one who thinks we planted a flag on Mars, another who thinks Guam is going to “tip over”, what’s next? Who the hell elects these morons?

  • TomH

    I hope Mars doesn’t tip over because of the weight. It already has all those holes.

  • Joe College

    I see on the news that exactly 90 days before the election Levi Johnston is entering into a public fight to gain custody of Tripp.

    There are no coincidences in politics. This is set up to recreate the chemistry that befitted Obama when he ran against Palin.

    This is the next distraction. One after another now for the next 90 days.

    MPAC’s political agenda with the Aurora, Colorado Tragedy

    [In the wake of the tragic shootings in Aurora, CO, the Muslim Public
    Affairs Council (MPAC) wasted no time in trying to capitalize on the
    tragedy for their own political agenda. The organization issued an
    email newsletter entitled “Now is the Time to End America’s Culture
    of Violence,” which sickeningly used the image of an obviously
    distraught family from the Aurora shooting.

    MPAC displayed its blatant anti-Americanism while trying to draw
    moral equivalency between the Colorado shooter and the actions
    of Islamist terrorists, such as Nidal Hasan.

    The trouble with “Jumah at the DNC”

    [It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided
    to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the
    organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event –
    Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates.
    They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and
    have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.]

    Laugh at SJL all you want. But she was put in Congress by people we graciously (but ever so pathetically) call “our fellow Americans.”

    And you thought that public education wasn’t successful.

    Breaking The War Mentality (#21)

    [The article, “Breaking the War Mentality,” published by the
    Columbia magazine Sundial, is a wholesale endorsement of all
    sorts of leftist claptrap fashionable at the time.

    Obama deems the Reagan era defense buildup
    a “distorted priority” and “dead end track.”

    If Obama still has this sensibility, he could be poised to take American
    foreign policy sharply to the left, notwithstanding the centrist foreign
    policy team he has assembled. Moreover, since Obama didn’t recognize
    the Soviet menace during the Cold War and blamed the possibility of war
    entirely on the United States, there’s good reason to think that today
    he could lack the moral clarity needed to fight radical Islam.]

    Personally, I think it is bad taste to publicly, outwardly laugh at the mental deficiencies of the lunatic-left d-cRATs, who ALL suffer from the debilitating and non-curable mental disease of socialist extremism. In fact, I make a point of never openly, publicly laughing at any of the remarks of Bite-Me biden (of course, in private…). These people are so warped by their moronic ideology that we should “pity the fools,” as Mr. T would say.

    Yeah Sheila,

    They were there to pick up the flag. They somehow forgot it. Then, they made a mistake, took a left turn and ended up on Mars. It’s a candy bar.

    Jackson (D) is now in a tie with Loretta Sanchez (D) for the (D)umbest person in the House … with the grim reaper aka Babs Boxer (D) holding this notorious position in the Senate.

    Oh No — Patty Murry (D. WA) owns the title of Dumbest senator — a title she’s held for several consecutive years. This award is voted on annually by Senate staff members who work with these nitwits on a daily basis. Murry, that snaggle-toothed little troll, only crawls out from under her desk to pose (probably standing on a wastebasket) behind Obungle as he fills out his miniature golf scorecard on C-SPAN. I recently spotted her drooling at Dingy Harry’s elbow as he blathered on for the press.

    As I’ve written her a dozen times, EVERY time a member of the Black Congressional Caucus opens his or her mouth something stupid comes out.

    You can take that to the bank.

    Typo at #31: “here” rather than “her.”

    I wouldn’t waste my time writing to her. I didn’t waste my time writing to my long-time congressman Dennis Kucinch either.

    On the subject of Rush, I really loved this part of his show.

    My Mistake! (And I don’t make Many)


    RUSH: You know where I make my mistake? And that is not very many mistakes, so when I say where I make my mistake, I’m an idiot. I foolishly, blindly, stupidly, dummkopfedly assume that everybody wants to provide for themselves. (laughing) How silly. I do. I assume that everybody’s trying to forge their way in the world and everybody’s trying to make their mark, trying to climb their ladder, and everybody is trying to accomplish something, enjoy success, become the best they can be. I assume that that’s what most people are trying to do. That’s where I’m wrong. That’s where I’m wrong.

    I assume that most people are going to pay for their own car. I assume that most people are going to pay for their own food. I assume that most people are going to pay for their own house. I’m just dumb in that regard. A lot of people don’t think that that’s a responsibility of their own anymore. See, I think everybody’s like me. I think everybody is blessed and understandingly blessed with incomparable freedom that people around the world don’t have, and that the road is out there for ’em, as fast as they want to travel, much as they want to do. And I just make the mistake of assuming that that’s the vast majority of the people in the country. It used to be. It used to be. I don’t know. I hope we’re not down to half. I hope there’s still more than half that look at life as a triumph of rugged individualism and self-reliance and not selfishness. It’s a big difference. Self-reliance and selfishness are two separate things. You know, self-interest is a great thing. It’s not selfishness. Anyway, Bugsy, I appreciate the call.

    Pelosi: ‘How Sweet Would It Be For The Country’ Not To Have Allen West In Congress


    Nasty Pelosi at a press event yesterday in Florida.

    How sweet would it be for the country to have Pelosi fly back to Oz on her broom?

  • Militant conservative

    This muffin has no idea how

    The country was formed nor

    Built. She is a sad reflection

    of the ignorant America I

    serve. They can’t even get a

    Food order correct. So sad,

    Capable of whitey work but

    Not willing. Such a waste.

    Powder is dry

  • She also wanted to know what kind of cheese the moon was made of ?….

    And she said if there is a man on the moon, what’s his name, and is he black or a cracker….

    And did that man that sang that song moon river, how did he get there ? and was the fishin good ?….

  • Tell the idiot congresscritter that the American flag was removed from Mars so as not to upset other nationalities that aspire to have a space race. Those racist astronauts who planted the offending flag were fired.

    heard Muslims not only discovered Mars, but that’s MO’s face etched on
    the surface, ergo, the fundie Islamists aren’t too happy about it and are
    threatening to blow it up via a clandestine NASA mission.. 😀

    Saw a comment from Eddie Volkman of K-Hits in Chicago. “Tragically, “Curiosity” landed on a Martian cat.” Curiosity, being basically an SUV, immediately cut off a Martian motorcycle. Claimed he did not see it. Probably texting.
