Today is the 100th anniversary of the opening of the holy shrine for Red Sox Nation, Fenway Park in Boston.
It was on this date in 1912 the Red Sox played their first game against the New York Highlanders (now the Yankees). In honor of this auspicious occasion the team Red Sox Nation calls ‘The Evil Empire’ will return to play in the Fenway Park Anniversary game as both squads wear 1912 throwback uniforms to mark the occasion.
But y’all don’t wanna hear me talk about baseball. I know what day and what time it is. It’s Friday, and that means it’s time to unveil this week’s TransGriot Shut Up Fool award winner for this week.
So let’s get right to who hit home runs when it comes to hypocrisy and championship level stupidity.
Oyr nominees this week were Rep Eric Cantor (R-VA) Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) Gov Scott Walker (R-WI), Rep Paul Ryan (R-WI), Mitt Romney, Ann Romney, Dick Cheney, Gretchen Carlson, Eric Bohlert, Reince Priebus, and group nods to the Republican Party, ALEC and Fox Noise.
The runaway winner is Ted Nugent, who put his foot in his mouth at the just concluded NRA convention in St Louis by uttering anti Obama statements that earned him a well deserved visit by the Secret Service, then doubled down on it..
Teddy boy’s comments were so off the charts inflammatory that even the NRA deleted them from their website and the Romney campaign after proudly trumpeting they had his endorsement now wants to pretend he doesn’t exist.
And this wasn’t the first time he went off about the POTUS and Secretary Clinton. He also had a jacked up rant in 2007.
Ted Nugent, shut the HELL up fool!
