Shut Up Fool Awards- Happy Holiday Weekend Edition
If you're west of the International Date Line it's Christmas Eve for you already
But my ongoing mission of finding this week's.fool, fools or group of fools for our illustrious TransGriot Shut Up Fool award never takes a day off. And before I get my grub on and open my Christmas gifts I must send you into your holidays secure in the knowledge that you know who won this week's award.
So let's do this shall we?
This week's nominees are Group awards for the Westboro Baptist Church, the House Republicans, the Lowell Sun newspaper in Massachusetts and Fox Noise, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Rep Eric Cantor (R-VA), Jeremy Shockey, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Marcus Bachmann, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), Gov Chris Christie (R-NJ), Ron Paul, and Rep Allen West (R-FL)
the new bigot in charge of the University of Texas College Republicans and Tea Klux Klanner Jules Manson
This week's winner however is Rep. James Sensenbrennner (R-WI)
He's been spending a lot of time obsessing about First Lady Michelle Obama's derrière. He was overheard ranting in a DCA airport lounge about how she “lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.”
At a Christmas service at St. Aidan's Episcopal Church in Hartford, WI he repeated the comment. Sensenbrenner stated to the assembled parishioners, “And Michelle Obama, her project is obesity. And look at her big butt.”
