Shut Up Fool Awards-Happy Birthday Laverne Edition!

Today is the birthday of my fab sister Laverne Cox, and hope she's not only having a fabulous, blessings filled day, but she gets to celebrate many more of them far into the future.

But as you TransGriot readers know, it's also Friday, and y'all know what I get to do on this day without fail for your reading pleasure.

I get the fun of calling out the fool, fools or group of fools who exhibit over the top hypocrisy, mind blowing ignorance and stupidity, and just do and say stuff that make you say WTF?

It's time for the latest edition of the TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards.

Honorable mention number one is Wisconsin governor Scott Walker (R), who thinks mandatory ultrasounds 'are a cool thing' for women hoping to get abortions.

Really?   How the hell would you know?   I think you and all your conservafool masculine friends who believe that BS should have forced prostate exams with a frozen aluminum bat shoved up your anus.  

But keep talking Scott.  The more you do, the more you prove you're unfit to be POTUS.

Honorable mention number two is Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican secretary of state who in the wake of Roman Catholic Ireland voting overwhelmingly (62% YES) to allow same sex marriage, the vote was a 'defeat for humanity.'

Honorable mention number three is Joseph Hayon.   The former leader in the Brooklyn Tea Party who ran on a 2012 pledge to protect children was arrested on child porn possession charges.

So tell me once again conservafools, who are the child predators we need to be looking out for?

Honorable mention number four is the Indian social media campaign that seeks to have women thank men for not sexually assaulting them.

Seriously?  How about you not acting like a horny caveman? You don't deserve a fracking cookie for the minimum expectation in a civilized society of keeping your hands and penis to yourself.

Honorable mention number five is Pat Robertson, who crawled out of the bowels of his crypt to say on the 666 700 Club that gay men are 'pedophiles who want to recruit your sons.'

Honorable mention number six is Nevada Assemblywoman Michelle Fiore, who in the middle of a debate about a racist voter ID law the GOP controlled legislature called a Black legislator 'colored' after trying to deny racism doesn't exist in the USA.

This week's winner is the junior senator from Alberta, Ted Cruz.   Remember when Teabagger Ted criticized and voted against funding for Hurricane Sandy victims? Well, seems like he's against ANY emergency relief unless it is going to Texas.

"Today, Texans are hurting. They're hurting here in San Marcos. They're hurting in Wimberley. They're hurting in Houston. They're hurting across the state.

"Democrats and Republicans in the congressional delegation will stand as one in support of the federal government meeting its statutory obligations to provide the relief to help the Texans who are hurting."

But when it was the northeastern US that needed the help, Comrade Ted was singing a different song before he voted against that emergency assistance.

"This bill is symptomatic of a larger problem in Washington—an addiction to spending money we do not have. The United States Senate should not be in the business of exploiting victims of natural disasters to fund pork projects that further expand our debt."

Once upon a time Texas sent people to Washington DC like LBJ, Ralph Yarborough, John Tower, Sam Rayburn, Barbara Jordan, and Mickey Leland just to name a few who were respected and visionary national and international leaders.

Now we have leaders going to Washington representing my birth state that are running comedic jokes.

Ted Cruz, shut the HELL up fool!.
