Happy New Year TransGriot Readers! In addition to today being the 10th anniversary of my blog, it's also Friday, and that means it's time for me to select the first Shut Up Fool weekly winner for 2016.
Since this is an election year, I expect that my fools will runneth over, especially on the GOP nomination trail.
Honorable mention number one is Katrina Pierson. She's the teabaggin' spokesmodel for the Trump campaign who not only threatened to wear a fetus necklace the next time she's on camera after being called out for her not so fashion forward bullet one, it's come to light she was pushing the Agenda 21 conspiracy theory.
Honorable mention number two is a joint group award to the Louisville media and the St Matthews, police department for blowing up a December 26 incident at Mall St. Matthews into one that inflamed racial tension in the Louisville metro area.
Honorable mention number three is another joint one for two New Hampshire Republican legislators, Josh Moore and Al Baldasaro, who let their inner male chauvinist pig fly when they were criticized by NH Rep. Rep Amanda Bouldin (D) for their War on Women bill seeking to criminalize breastfeeding and started attacking her with misogynistic insults.
Once again, the only good GOP legislator at any level is an out of work one. Remember that when you go to the polls in 2016.
Honorable mention number four is every kneegrow trying to defend Bill Cosby online after he was finally arrested for sexual assault.
The first SUF winner of 2016 is a Texan, and nope, he's not ted Cruz or the other usual GOP suspects, it's TX Rep Jonathan Strickland.
Mr Watts former classmate is under fire for posting online that rape is non existent in marriage, and calling a commenter that disagreed with him a 'bratwurst loving homo'.
He told the Texas Observer that he 'severely regrets' the posts. Yeah, right. The only thing this Tea Klux Klan member regrets is getting caught.
North Texas, do us a favor in 2016 and make this idiot an ex-Texas state rep.
Rep Jonathan Strickland, shut up fool!
