One has to wonder about the people of Representative Sheila Jackson Lee’s district in the Great State of Texas. If she’s the best option for representing them at the federal level… well… (I can only shake my head.)

Sometimes people make flip remarks or simply round the numbers for simplicity’s sake. But this probably isn’t the case here. Saying the Constitution is “some 400 years” old is more than a rounding error. And give Rep. Lee’s propensity for “foot in mouth”, it’s probably more likely one of those instances.

We’ll see how (or if) she attempts to fix this one.

Here’s the quote from Rep. Lee herself: “Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not.”

You can watch her in her own words here.

In the meantime… check your math and leave me a comment… exactly how old IS the Constitution?
