For the rest of the month of March college basketball junkies around the nation will be wrapped up in watching which teams end up in Denver for the Women's Final Four or the Superdome in New Orleans the Men's Final Four playing for NCAA titles.
As per TransGriot tradition, once the Selection Sunday and Monday shows happen setting up the regions and teams in the tournament and who is playing where, I'll put my men's and women's NCAA brackets up for all you TransGriot readers to see (and pick apart)
Speaking of picking things apart, that's my cue to segue into our usual Friday business of seeing what fool, fool or group o fools exhibited championship level stupidity and ignorance this week worthy of receiving a Shut Up Fool Award.
As usual I had many worthy contenders for this week's SUF Awards and some honorable mentions this week I'll get to later. Group award nominations go to the Republican Party, Clear Channel Communications, and NOM. The individual ones go to Gov Bob McDonnell (R-VA), Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Rep Eric Cantor (R-VA), Gretchen Carlson, Eric Boehlert, the late Andrew Breitbart, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum
Honorable mention to Rush Limbaugh for digging an even deeper hole of dlusion in his attacks on Sandra Fluke.
This week Shut Up Fool Award is a group one for Fox Noise. Whether they are caught flip flopping on their own positions about high gas prices, backing Rush up in his attacks on Sandra Fluke, pimping the right wing agenda 24 -7, or trying to push a racist meme that he's a 'dangerous left wing radical' based on a few minutes of old video of the future POTUS speaking at a Harvard University rally on behalf of the late Professor Derrick Bell, they were in rare form this week and richly deserve this award
