We are now into the third day of the Festival of Lights, which means the third candle will be lit on the menorahs of my Jewish friends, trans family and allies who celebrate this holiday.
And yes, they do have some creative menorahs to hold those holiday candles like this Star Trek Next Gen one.
Today is also Friday, and it means I have the pleasure of selecting what fool, fools, or group of fools get called out in this edition of the TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards.
And yep, still sorting out who will be the 2014 year's Shut Up Fool of the Year
So lets get busy revealing who this week's holiday fools are shall we?
Honorable mention number one is Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) who if freaking out over President Obama's announcement of normalized relations with Cuba.
Dude, the policy is over five decades old and hasn't worked. It's time to try something different.
Honorable mention number two is Missouri State Rep. Rick Brattin, (R) who proposed a bill that would require a woman to get permission from a man to get an abortion, even if he is abusive to her.
WTF? Well peeps, these are the type of proposed laws you get when you won't vote and the conservafools get elected.
Honorable mention number three is Ann Coulter, for being her usual ugly self.
Honorable mention number four is a group award for Dave Welch and his Houston Area Pastors Council. Not content with meddling in Houston human rights business and screwing up, they have now trained their sights 260 miles north to Plano and trying to get their just passed human rights law on a repeal ballot.
Hope you have the same success with that you had on this end of I-45.
This week's SUF winner is Sen Ted Cruz (Teabagger-TX).
We can thank the junior senator from Alberta for his failed immigration political stunt during the waning days of the lame duck session.
Because of that failed stunt, it gave the Democrats two critical extra days to confirm President Obama's pick to be Surgeon General, Dr Vivek Murthy, and multiple judicial nominees that they gleefully took advantage of.
In addition to Teabagger Ted putting himself back in the running for a 2014 Shut Up Fool of the Year win,, he pissed off his own party while the Democrats gleefully took advantage of his unforced political error. and rubbed it in his face after doing so.
Is it 2018 yet?
Sen Ted Cruz, shut up fool!
