While the number of teams still playing basketball in the NCAA tournament is dwindling, the number of fools in our society seems to exponentially increasing.
So on that note, let's segue into our business for this post and see what fools deserve to be pitied, or not this week.
Fool Number One is Jackson, MS negro Republican George Lambus who is canvassing mostly White neighborhoods in his mayoral run with an odious campaign flier that calls for “a noose and stout tree limb” to combat crime.
Okay, this is in a state where the 14th Amendment wasn't ratified until 1999.
The flier reads:
"Incompetent negro Democrats at City Hall, negroes without civic pride, negro criminals and corrupt negro police officers have just about driven this city into the ground. Any negro Democrat running for mayor who tells you that he or she can reduce crime and bring jobs to Jackson is a damn lie. They only want to be mayor for the salary. Job creation is contingent upon the economy improving, and crime can only be alleviated by a noose and a stout tree limb. I will provide the noose, and when the economy improves, I will get the jobs here."
Yeah, right. One job you ain't gonna get is mayor of Jackson, MS. On top of that, you live in the state which competed with Alabama to see who could commit the most egregious atrocities during the Civil Rights Movement. I know your sellout azz is old enough to remember Emmitt Till, the 1964 killings of Chaney, Schwerner and Goodman, the shooting of James Meredith and the killing of Medgar Evers.
Yo, does anybody have the Drop Squad's number on speed dial?
Fool Number Two is Tammy Bruce, who put on her pink sheet while guest hosting on Laura Ingraham's radio show and attacked First Lady Michelle Obama.
"That's what he's married to..You know what we've got? We've got trash in the White House. Trash is a thing that is colorblind, it can cross all socio-economic...categories. You can work on Wall Street, or you can work at the Wal-Mart. Trash, are people who use other people to get things, who patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy..."
Like you, Ms. Bruce?
Fool Number Three is Faux News commentator Mike Huckabee, who compared abortion to slavery in a fundraising speech to an anti-abortion group in Jefferson City, MO.
The only way that wacked comparison is valid is if you're talking about the atrocities committed during the Middle Passage, in which sailors on those slave ship voyages that shared Mr. Huckabee's heritage cut open the stomachs of pregnant African women.
This week's winner is- George Lambus
George Lambus, shut up fool!
