Terror of the Skies

I'm sure that you've all read, by now, the unsettling tale of Rep Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) who makes life hell for flight crews.
She takes advantage of federal travel perks to book multiple flights (only to cancel at the last minute and at no charge). She demands an upgrade to premier seats. She expects, in her words, “to be treated like a queen.”
Most recently, she booted a paying customer out of first-class so that she could have the seat that she feels she deserves.  Ms. Jackson Lee is the ranking member of the House subcommittee on Transportation Security, so   She's also a black woman, so she keeps a deck of race cards in her purse to deal whenever she feels the slightest bit criticized.
“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice,
Yeah, whatever, Congresswoman.  I hope you enjoyed your flight.

And what does it say about the entitlement minded people who have been reelecting her for years? Every damned one of them is thumbing his/her nose at everyone else, just as she does as their elected rep.
