Shut Up Fool! Awards Oscar Weekend Edition

The 82nd Academy Awards take place on Sunday.

I'm looking forward to seeing if it will be a historic night for the movie Precious, Mo'Nique, Gabby Sibourey, Morgan Freeman and director Lee Daniels.

It's Friday and I'm putting on the formal wear this week, stepping on the blogopshere red carpet and shining a bright spotlight on the foll or fools this week that earned our illustrious award.

I'm also going to start a new TransGriot feature. From now on, as suggested by several regular readers, I will start inducting people on Oscar night for our Shut Up Fool! Lifetime Achievement Award.

Check TransGriot on Oscar night to see who our first honoree is.

Now to current business.

This week's SUF winner is Walt Baker, the CEO of the Tennessee Hospitality Association He sent out a 'joke' e-mail that compared the First Lady to Cheetah, the chimp in Tarzan, comolet with unflattering pic of the FLOTUS.

Ha ha. But nobody but the Teabaggers are laughing.

As usual in cases of a white male behaving badly, he's already issuing apologies after the fact, yadda yadda yadda.

What is with the Hateraid for the racist Hateraid of the First Lady and Tennesseans?

Walt Baker, Shut Up Fool!
