Shut Up Fool Awards- Elite Eight Edition

The NCAA men’s and women’s tournaments whittle down from the Sweet Sixteen to the Elite Eight as they determine what four schools will eventually head to New Orleans and Denver to play for the NCAA men’s and women’s b-ball championships.  

And yes, Brittney Griner became the second woman to dunk in an NCAA tournament game.

So how are your brackets holding up?  Already lost one of my Final Four teams on the mens bracket but the other three are still alive for now.   On the women’s bracket  all four are still around.

So let’s get to our usual Friday business of calling out the fool, fools or groups of fools who exhibited championship level stupidity this week worthy of receiving the Shut Up Fool award.

Group awards for Fox Noise, the Republican Party, the Tea Party and every male Republican legislator trying to defend the GOP War on Women.  Individual nominees are Rep Eric Cantor (R-VA), Rep Joe Walsh (R-IL) Rep Cliff Stearns (R-FL), Rep Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH)

But this week’s Shut Up Fool award goes to Geraldo Rivera for parting his lips to say that the hoodie was just as responsible for the murder of Trayvon Martin as George Zimmerman.

…when you see a black or Latino youngster, particularly on the
street, you walk to the other side of the street. You try to avoid that
confrontation. Trayvon Martin, you know God bless him, he was an
innocent kid, a wonderful kid, a box of Skittles in his hands. He didn’t
deserve to die. But I’ll bet you money, if he didn’t have that hoodie
on, that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that
violent and aggressive way.

Geraldo, you’ve been hanging around your Fox Noise friends for far too long.   Racism and racial profiling was responsible for Trayvon’s murder, not the clothing he was wearing.  Oh by the way, white kids wear hoodies too and sometimes they even commit crimes while wearing them as well.

Geraldo Rivera, shut up fool!
