In just seven days we will move on to 2018, so that means it’s almost time for me to select the fool,fools or group of fools who will earn the coveted TransGriot Shut Up Fool of the Year Award.
This was the list of 2017 SUF of the Year contenders back in June.
Since 2009, every New Year’s Eve I close out the year by selecting the person or person who excelled in exhibiling over the top levels of ignorance, showed Olympian levels of arrogance, and WTF levels of hypocrisy and did so for the entire year.
The inaugural winner of the 2009 Shut Up Fool of the Year Award was then RNC chair Michael Steele He was followed by Sarah Palin in 2010. Herman Cain snagged the honor over some stiff competition in 2011 followed by runaway 2012 winner Mitt Romney.In 2013 the junior senator from Alberta, Ted Cruz made a late run to snag the 2013 Shut Up Fool of The Year honors. The 2014 Shut Up Fool of the Year award stayed in Texas with Rep. Louie Gohmert getting it over some stiff competition In 2015, it was Donald Trump , followed by him becoming the first ever repeat SUF of the Year winner in 2016.
And now here are the finalists for the 2017 Shut Up Fool of the Year Award. I was going to do just five, but it was just too many idiots to leave out this year.
Texas Lt Governor Dan Patrick is on the list, along with White House
Press Secretary Minister of Propaganda Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and former VA Del. Bigot Bob Marshall.
A group award for the Republican Party. Texas Sen. Lois “Locker Room’ Kolkhorst. Jerry Jones and Bob McNair made it John Schnatter , KY Gov. Matt Bevin , Jeffrey Lord,
