Shut Up Fool Awards-CONCACAF Women's Championship Edition

The group stage of the 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championship is over and has now been whittled down to the four soccer teams in the semifinals to be played at PPL Park in Chester, PA.  

Three will finish this weekend making plans to travel to the 2015 Women's World Cup in Canada next summer, while the fourth place squad will have to battle Ecuador in a playoff for a tournament berth.

While Jamaica's Reggae Girlz failed in their quest to qualify, there was another Caribbean based squad who has a chance to make the history that Jamaica was trying to accomplish in Trinidad and Tobago.

If Trinidad and Tobago wins the match, they will become the first ever Caribbean based women's team to qualify for a World Cup.

They will face off against Costa Rica in one semifinal match today, while the other is a rematch between FIFA world number one ranked Team USA and Mexico.

Four years ago Mexico pinned a stunning 2-1 loss on Team USA in the semis that forced them to go the playoff route to qualify for the 2011 Women's World Cup in Germany.   Will lightning strike twice or will Team USA avenge their only defeat in CONCACAF qualifying?

Yeah yeah, I know what today is.  It's Friday, and you loyal readers are ready for another edition of the TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards, not me talking about soccer.

Okay so let's get to it shall we?

Honorable mention number one is James O'Keefe.   This conservafool is at it again trying to manufacture evidence in Colorado that attempts to 'prove' voter fraud as defined by the GOP exists.

Dude, why are you committing voter fraud to try to prove it exists?   Because you and your conservafool friend know that the only reason you have these unjust laws in the first place is to keep people from voting you don't like.

Honorable mention number two is FOX Noise fembot Kimberly Guilfoyle, who parted her lips to say that young women are too busy with 'Tinder' to understand voting.

Honorable mention number three is Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), who admitted the GOP voter suppression agenda for 2016.

Honorable mention number four is Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX).  Gohmert Pyle continues his push for 2014 Shut Up Foll of the year by this time saying in a recent radio interview that gay serving in the military would need massages that will make them vulnerable to terrorism.

Um naw, that isn't an The Onion spoof headline.  Somebody in the Tyler-Longview area please run against this fool and get him out of Congress.

Honorable mention number five is Rep Don Young (R-AK) who blames public benefits for causing suicides.

Ooohkay, .Don.

Honorable mention number six is Mama June of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fame, who got the family's TLC reality show canceled because she's dating a convicted child molester.  

WTF?  Mama June tried to deny she was, but obviously TLC didn't believe her.   TLC 'had already shot another season of shows and it was one of their more profitable ones, so they are taking a fiscal hit in this situation.   I never watched the show anyway, but damn, what the hell was she thinking?  

This week's Shut Up Fool Award winner is Rep. Steve King (R-IA).

Just when I start to get despondent about the plethora of elected GOP idiots roaming my home state, here comes Steve King to lift my spirits and let me know that Texas doesn't have a lock on Republicans saying stupid crap on a regular basis.

King was interviewed for a local Iowa newspaper and in it opined that 'gays won't make it to heaven'

Rep. Steve King (R-IA)
"I would say that what was a sin 2,000 years ago is a sin today, and we need to stick to that principle,” King said. “I’ll just say that what was a sin 2,000 years ago is a sin today, and people that were condemned to hell 2,000 years ago, I don’t expect to meet them should I make it to heaven. So let’s stick with that principle.”

Dude, what make you so sure that you'll be going to heaven to find out whether there are rainbow flags flying there or not?

Judge not, lest ye be judged.   And Rep. Steve King, shutteth up fool!
