Jackson Lee Denounces Pepsi Super Bowl Ad as "Demeaning"!

Rush Limbaugh: "I finally watched some of the commercials, and I saw the Pepsi Max commercial, you know which one I'm talking about. "A black woman sitting on a park bench gets angry with her husband after an attractive, white female jogger sits down next to the couple and smiles and waves at the man. But guess what's happened here with this Pepsi commercial? Sheila Jackson Lee is blasting it as a demeaning Super Bowl ad.
  "Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said it was ridiculous for the soft drink maker to air the advertisement during African-American history month. 'In this month of African-American history where we're trying to celebrate what is good and great, it certainly seems ridiculous that Pepsi would utilize this kind of humor,' she said. 'It was not humorous. It was demeaning -- an African-American woman throwing something at an African-American male and winding up hitting a Caucasian woman.' Jackson Lee said she has a sense of humor and believes in the First Amendment. She also said the Super Bowl is a great time for 'fellowship' with family members." That's why she's so disappointed with the Pepsi ad."
Here's the ad:
