After spending a few days in Boston, I'm enroute back to the Lone Star State after handling my business at the NABJ convention.
While I had fun taking part on yesterday's panel, it's time for me to head back to the Lone Star State and the HERO defense battle.
But it's also Friday, and yes it's time to determine what fool , fools or group of fools get this week's Shut Up Fool Award.
Honorable mention number one is The GOP led House for going on a five week vacation and setting the standard for congressional non-productivity.
Don't you have more important things to do like, you know, run the country? Since that seems to be such a difficult task for you Teapublicans, it's time to relieve you of that responsibility on November 4.
Honorable mention number two is Iowa US senate candidate and current Iowa state senator Joni Ernst, who's had too many washes, sets and rinses at the GOP Stepford Salon. Ernst said at a 2013 forum that Congress shouldn't pass laws that states will nullify.
Guess Ernst was asleep during government class. FEDERAL laws take precedence over STATE ones. The unanimous 1958 Cooper v. Aaron decision added and exclamation point to that debunked argument.says that FEDERAL laws take precedence over state ones.
If you don't know that fundamental fact Joni, you don't deserve to be in the US Senate.
Honorable mention number three is Michael Peroutka, the Maryland GOP candidate who got busted singing Dixie at a 2012 pro-secessionist convention. In his zeal to prove he wasn't racist.....well, you know
Honorable mention number four is Michelle Goldberg for that full of fail TERF love letter that got published in the New Yorker.
Honorable mention number five is a joint Uncle Ruckus award for kneegrow sellouts Eric Knowles and Robert Broadus, who stood next to the 'I'm not racist' Peroutka and cooned it up for their GOP massa.
This week's winner is our homegrown King Hater Dave Welch.
When you call for imprecatory prayers in a HERO fight you and your pseudo-faith based haters are losing, you win hands down
Dave Welch, go to hell, oops shut up fool
