Shut Up Fool Awards-Shuttin' Down The Government Edition
While they are giddily jumping up and down happy about it, the rest of us in reality based world are seething about the closed national parks, furloughed federal workers and other functions of the federal government that aren't happening because of the collective GOP stupidity.
All I have to say is get your revenge at the polls on November 4, 2014.
Let's move on to our usual Friday business and select this week's Shut Up Fool Award. There is no suspense in who won this week's SUF Award, it's a group one for the Republican Party.
However, before I bring up our SUF mascot to say what we've all wanted to scream at every Republican that popped up on TV this week, I'll announce per usual the Honorable Mentions.
Honorable Mention number one goes to Rep. Randy Neugebarger (Teabagger-TX) who was caught hypocritically on film berating a female park ranger for doing her job and keeping the World War II Memorial closed because Neugebarger and his pals voted for the government shutdown that necessitated the closure of the monument in the first place.
Honorable Mention number two goes to Rep. Renee Ellmers (Teabagger-North Carolina) who voted for the shutdown and said she won't be giving up her paycheck
""I need my paycheck. That's the bottom line," Ellmers told WTVD in Raleigh, N.C. "I understand that there may be some other members who are deferring their paychecks, and I think that's admirable. I'm not in that position."
Neither are the 800,000 federal employees that are furloughed and won't be getting paid because of your vote, congresswoman. They need their checks, too.
Honorable Mention number three goes to Speaker of the House (in name only) John Boehner (R-OH)
I'd need another post to explain the lengthy reasons why. But one is he's too chicken to confront the Teabagger Caucus because he's afraid he'll lose the speaker's chair.
Dude, the Tea Klux Klan Caucus is already plotting to replace you with either Paul Ryan or Eric Cantor, so you might as well stand up for the country and do some good while you have the speakers gavel in your possession..
Honorable Mention number four goes to HRH Ann Romney, who is still bitter about not becoming FLOTUS when Willard got his butt electorally kicked by the 44th President of the United States last November. She parted her lips to say in a recent television appearance that had Willard won there would be no government shutdown.
“We would not be in a shutdown.” Well don’t we all feel bad for not voting for Mitt now? Because, the Republican-led government shutdown would not have occurred if a Republican was in office.
Naw Ann, I and the other 65,915,795 Americans who voted for President Obama feel blessed and thank God every day that your flip flopping by the millisecond 1 percenter hubby and you aren't living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Honorable Mention number five goes to Rep Marlin Stutzman (Teabagger- IN) who basically summed up what the GOP was fighting for in this government shutdown and the testosterone fueled vanillacentric privilege and idiocy fueling it.
"We're not going to be disrespected ... We have to get something out of this. And I don't know what that even is."
The POTUS called him on it, too.
Honorable Mention number six goes to KY senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul for getting caught on a live mike discussing their failing with the reality based public messaging strategy.
We already know who won this week, so let's now bring out our Shut Up Fool spokesmascot. to say something to our SUF winners, the Republican Party.
Republican party, Shut up Fools!
