Shut Up Fool! Awards-GOP Lying About Health Care Edition

The GOP Noise Machine is in full throat in its all out attempt to kill the Obama health care plan. The greedy HMO's and insurance companies like the current setup and want to keep making obscene profits.

It's disgusting that the United States is the only industrialized nation that doesn't have universal single payer health care for its citizens.

The rest of the world looks at this circus and wonders aloud how the American people allows this travesty to continue. Well, that what happens when 20% of the country is tuned in to a propaganda network and the Republican Party and their cronies are willing to lie to keep it from happening.

All we can do is keep fighting to ensure that one day we join the rest of the world in providing low cost health care for all its citizens.

Speaking of health care, there were fools that were worthy of being carted off to psychiatric care or made you wonder if they're still hitting the hallucinogenic drugs too hard.

While there were many fools who could have garnered our award such as Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), the Birthers, PETA, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs, and the Republican Party, our Fool of the Week is sellout spokesnegro Larry Elder.

Elder distinguished himself in the ongoing conversation around the arrest of Professor Henry Louis Gates by not only blaming the professor for what happened to him in his own home, but blamed the controversy on in his words 'irresponsible Blacks'.

The only 'irresponsible Blacks' here are you and your Oreo cookie chomping buddies.

In you conservanegroes zeal to defend the po-po's, you neglected or didn't care to to acknowledge that the African-American community's drama with the police didn't arise in a vacuum.

It is rooted in decades of violent confrontations that have resulted in our untimely deaths. There is also systemic racism in many police departments and the historic fact they were used as the stormtroopers enforcing Jim Crow segregation and white privilege.

Larry Elder, shut up fool!
