Shut Up Fool Awards-Inauguration Weekend Edition

It's getting closer to January 20 and the start of Obama presidency 2.0.   He's already laid out the issue priorities of his seond term along with one that has gained the 'fierce urgency of now' in terms of sensible gun regulation.

And how cool is it that the inauguration ceremony for his second term will take place on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day?

Speaking of the fierce urgency of now, it's Friday, so that mens it's time for me to determine what fool, fools or group of fools earned a Shut Up Fool Award this week.

As always as I roll toward the anniversary of this award later this month, our fools runneth over this week.

Honorable mention number one goes to Rep Steve Stockman (Teabagger-TX) who threated impeachment of President Obama if he used executive orders to tackle gun violence.

Honorable mention number two is a group award for the Republican Party, who is on retreat this week trying to come up with ways to get back in the non white electorate's good graces.

But how are you going to do that when you have a panel on diversity with three white males and NO African-Americans on it, and you attempt to do outreach to the African-American community from a ballroom named for a former plantation?

Can you say clueless?   Thought you could.

Honorable mention number three goes to Sen Rand Paul (Teabagger-KY)   Who tried to throw out the latest attack line (or is it an old one)  that the POTUS is acking like a king

“I’m afraid that President Obama may have this ‘king complex’ sort of developing,” the Kentucky lawmaker argued Wednesday on Fox News. “We’re going to make sure it doesn’t happen.

Yeah, President Obama is acting like a king alright.   The Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This week's winner is a group award for the NRA    Their freakout over the renewed push to enact sensible gun control has led to say and do some jaw droppingly stupid stuff

Wheter it was their commercial attacking Malia and Sasha Obama that they tried to deny wasn't attacking the First Daughters, their allegations of 'death threats' or their spokespeople like Wayne LaPierre or NRA prez David Keene furiously lying, the bottom line is that the public support for sensible gun regulation has increased since the Newtown mass shooting and they are on the wrong side of history in this fight..

NRA, shut up fools
