Today is what would have been the 81st birthday, for the greatest American we have ever produced as a people, the Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We take the time on the day of the birth of our 'Drum major for Justice' to reflect on his wonderful legacy. You are definitely missed and your words will live on to inspire future generations of human beings to do great things.
So now that we've taken the time to remember a great American, let's get to the nettlesome task of searching for the fools spouting jibber jabber as our mascot would say.
We had a bumper crop of fools springing up this week including our 2009 Shut Up Fool! of the Year Award winner Michael Steele. Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh, and Ann Coulter.
It was a tough decision, but I gave it this week to former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich for this comment:
“It’s such a cynical business, and most of the people in the business are full of shit and phonies, but I was real, man—and am real. This guy, he was catapulted in on hope and change, what we hope the guy is. What the fuck? Everything he’s saying’s on the teleprompter. I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up.”
You wish you could be Barack Obama, but tragically, you're not. You're more like Navin Johnson.
Yeah, right Blago. Shut up fool!
