Shut Up Fool Awards-National Doughnut Day Edition

It's the first Friday in June, and today is National Doughnut Day in which doughnut lovers like moi got a free one in addition to whatever amount we bought to scarf up on the way to work or home.

The Shipley's down the street from the house was passing out a free glazed doughnut until noon today.  Since I'd been good and resisted temptation to eat them by the half dozen (or dozen) for the last three  months, I decided this was a good day to break the doughnut fast.

Let me move on to what y'all really surfed over here for, to find out out what fool, fools or group of fools earned this week's TransGriot Shut Up Fool Award.

So let's get right to it. 

Honorable mention number one is the peeps of MassResistance, who demanded that the Boston Red Sox cancel an upcoming Pride Night game that occurred last night against the Texas Rangers

Honorable mention number two goes to my governor I didn't vote for, Rick 'Governor Goodhair' Perry, (R-TX) who vetoed a bipartisan 'Buy American' bill that passed the GOP dominated Texas House 23-7 and the GOP Dominated Texas Senate 145-0.  The bill mandates that when the state is making purchases and it comes down to a good which is US made and one foreign made and the price and quality are similar, the American made good be purchased.

Can't wait until next year's elections.

Honorable mention number three goes to Texas Tea Klux Klan leader Ken Emanuelson, who said in a May 20 meeting in response to a question about African-American outreach that "The Republican Party doesn't want Black people to vote if they are going to vote 9-1 for Democrats."

Well, Ken, you haven't given us a reason to vote for y'all since 1970 and you have an almost effortless ability to piss us off with your jacked up statements and racist policies that ensure that trend will continue for another decade. 

Honorable mention number four goes to Faux Bidness host Stuart Varney, who admitted that he is being mean to poor people in his loud and wrong lies aimed at the Earned Income Tax Credit

And this week's winner is Uncle Ruckus Rev EW Jackson, the Virginia GOP lieutenant governor nominee who said the reason he doesn't believe in evolution is because "monkeys can't talk

That comment is so stunningly stupid I don't even have a response for that one except this.

Rev EW Jackson, shut the hell up, fool!
