The thing about this honor (“Fool of the Week”) is that it can be awarded for a single comment stemming from a momentary lapse in judgment. We’ve all been there.
Or it can be given to a repeat offender. A “fool trail” that they’ve left behind over a longer span of time.
That said, this week again provided me with a full docket of potential Fools of the Week…
Here are some of this week’s nominees:
President Obama for using selfie sticks.
Howard Dean for attacking Scott Walker’s education.
The radical Girl Scouts of Oakland, California
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for admitting she was not 100% sober during the recent State of the Union address. (Actually, I would have needed a few vodka clubs to sit through that, too. So she was immediately crossed off the list)
But this week’s awardee was so foolish, she crushed her competition for the Fool of the Week:
With just a few minutes to interview high profile political guests, television hosts usually ask questions Americans want answers to.
With that in mind, here’s what MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry asked outgoing attorney general Eric Holder:
“Will you quack like a duck” for the MSNBC viewers?”
Wow. From the host who once hung feminine hygiene products from her ears. On air!!
Melissa Harris Perry… you are the Fool of the Week!
And by the way, MSNBC viewers, if that’s your idea of good TV, well, knock yourselves out. We will be bringing the truth to our “Cashin in” viewers on Fox News this weekend which airs simultaneously opposite Ms. Perry’s hard-hitting interviews.
Have a great weekend everybody!
