When I'm traveling the country or out and about in the community, one of the things that my readers consistently tell me is they love my weekly Shut Up Fool Awards.
And now that the calendar page is about to turn to December, time for me and you TransGriot readers to think about who will get the 2012 Shut Up Fool of the Year Award.
Every New Year's Eve since 2009 I've given that award to the fool , fool or group of fools who have shown consistent jaw dropping ignorance and mind numbing stupidity for that calendar year.
The inaugural 2009 award went to then RNC chair Michael Steele. In 2010 it went to Sarah Palin and in 2011 Herman Cain snagged the honor over some stiff competition.
Who will earn it this year? Will it be (hallelujah) former Rep. Allen West? Mitt Romney? Rep. Michele Bachmann? Former Rep. Joe Walsh? Rush Limbaugh? Rep Paul Ryan? Rep Louie Gohmert? Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL)? Gov Jan Brewer (R-AZ)? Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX)? Or will it be a group award for the first time for Fox Noise? The Republican Party? The Romney Campaign Team?
Nominations are open until December 26 for the 2012 Shut Up Fool of the Year .
