One of the more popular features on my blog is the weekly Shut Up Fool Awards in which I shine a bright spotlight on the fool, fools or group of fools who deserve to be called out on their bull feces and jaw dropping unrepentant ignorance.
There are some folks however who did so repeatedly to the point they were consistently foolish over the calendar year. Before y'all get your party on later tonight (or are recovering from your New Year's Eve partying) I want you to do so with the knowledge of who won the TransGriot 2012 Shut Up Fool of The Year Award.
Will it be former Rep. Allen West? Mitt Romney? Rep. Michele Bachmann? Former Rep. Joe Walsh? Rush Limbaugh? Donald
This year fool will join such winners as Michael Steele (2009), Sarah Palin (2010) and Herman Cain (2011).
The envelope please.
It was a tight race this year, but I have to give it to Willard Mitt Romney. Thanks to you TransGriot readers for helping me sort it out and for the nominations.
Mittens was a long running WTF when it came to his latest presidential campaign run. From his 47% comment, shamelessly contorting himself and proving he would do and say (or not say) anything to live at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, liking being able to fire people, pissing off our British cousins on the eve of the London Games during his international tour; playing himself during the second debate with President Obama, claiming Russia was our Number One geopolitical foe, having surrogates from Hades like John Sununu and after he got his butt kicked November 6, his son claiming he didn't want to be POTUS despite spending over a billion of his and other people's money for it.
Mitt took being a fool to new levels, and he did so in front of billions of people.
Our Shut Up Fool of the Year for 2012 is Mitt Romney. Congratulations and Shut up Fool!
