The 2012 NFL Draft kicked off yesterday and the first round was conducted in primetime with as expected Houstonian Andrew Luck becoming the number one overall pick of the Indianapolis Colts. My fave NFL team with it’s first round pick selected Illinois DL Whitney Mercilous.
Rounds 2-3 happen later tonight and 4-7 on Saturday
But let’s move on from the football jibber jabber because it’s Friday and you longtime TransGriot readers know what what means. It’s time for me to select this week’s fool, fool or group of fools and expose their ignorance and stupidity to the world.
As always I had too many fools being nominated by my readers this week In addition to the group nominations for the Republican Party, Fox News, and The Boy Scouts for continued bigotry aimed at the GLBT community, the individual ones were for Rep Paul Ryan (R-WI), Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Karl Rove, Gretchen Carlson, Eric Boehlert, Reince Priebus, Gov Scott Walker (R-WI), Rep Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and Ann Romney
Honorable mention goes to Marine Sgt Gary Stein, who didn’t read the part of the Constitution that states the POTUS is commander in chief of our armed forces and finds himself discharged from the military. Dude, it’s not a smart play to let your WMP and teabagger politics overload your azz and say that you will refuse to obey any orders that your African-American commander in chief POTUS issues.
This week’s winner is Rep Virginia Foxx (R-NC) Even though I recently retired her from weekly consideration for Shut Up Fool Awards, since I’m a child of a retired teacher and abhor ignorance on such massive a scale, I had to temporarily bring her out of it to call her butt out.
“I have very little tolerance for people who tell me that they graduate with $200,000 of debt or even $80,000 of debt because there’s no reason for that. We live in an opportunity society and people are forgetting that. I remind folks all the time that the Declaration of Independence says ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’ You don’t have it dumped in your lap.”
And this is from the woman who chairs the House Subcommittee on Higher Education. Is November 6 here yet?
Rep Virginia Foxx, shut the HELL up fool.
