Our annual national basketball orgy of insanity known as March Madness, AKA the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournaments will be kicking off next week. I'll post my predictions as to who I think will go all the way then. In the interim, the conference championship tournaments will be in full effect this weekend and next to determine who gets the automatic bids into the Big Dance.
Speaking of March Madness, it's time for your favorite feature on TransGriot, the Shut up Fool! Awards.
Time to see which fool we pity this week.
This week it was no contest. Michael Steele is our landslide winner. He went on DL Hughley's now cancelled CNN show to call out Rush Limbaugh, then remembered he was on the GOP plantation and had to bow, scrape and apologize to Massa Rush.
Can you say figurehead, boys and girls? Thought you could.
He's also offered slum love to GOP governor Bobby Jindal (last week's SUF Award winner) while saying he's done a freaking awesome job as Louisiana governor.
He's said that government has never created a job, called civil unions "crazy", promised more outreach to "urban-suburban hip-hop settings" via an "off the hook" public relations campaign and gave a shout out to "one-armed midgets."
And that's before we talk about his potential personal scandals. Anybody wanna start taking bets as to how long he'll be running thangs in the GOP when there are GOP party members calling for his resignation?
Michael Steele, shut up fool!
