At least somebody would be in a position to enforce our constitutional right to health care that’s found in the Declaration of Independence, or something.

The Houston Chronicle reported that the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has suggested that President Obama choose Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee to replace Janet Napolitano as the head of the Department of Homeland Security.
Some tweeters, including Nick Searcy, sounded as if they’d be willing to seriously consider a Jackson Lee nomination:

Sheila Jackson-Lee for Sec of Homeland Security? I'd feel safer being locked in a cage with starving lions.

That was the former Homeland Security director’s security technique. We’re sure Sheila Jackson Lee would come up with something completely unique.
The guffaws continued:
