Happy New Year to you TransGriot readers! Not only is today the first day of 2010 and a new decade, it's also my blogiversary. TransGriot published its first post at 12:28 AM on January 1, 2006.
But y'all know what we do on Fridays. We pause to shine a bright spotlight on the fools in our midst, and it's time to get busy doing so again.
So who will get the honor of being the first fool we honor for 2010 and get a leg up on the competition for being our 2010 Shut Up Fool! of the Year Award winner?
This week's fool is Ann Coulter.
Unfortunately her jaw wasn't wired shut this holiday season like it was last year, so we had to hear Coulter and her conservacronies engage in race baiting, religious bigotry, and lie on their conservative propaganda dissemination network.
Back in 2007 the hosts of Fox & Friends spent a substantial portion of a broadcast repeating an obviously false online claim that then-Sen. Obama had attended a radical Islamic madrassa as a child in Indonesia.
Annie just dredged up the 'President studied at a madrassa' lie that has been thoroughly debunked by CNN.
I liked it better when her jaw was wired shut.
Ann Coulter, shut up fool!
