A self inflicted condition of politicians in an attempt to either overcome their lack ability to properly pronounce words, or, an attempt to relate to the audience they are speaking to.

My definition needs a little crafting, but its close enough for now.

I saw W on the TV this morning. He over-pronounces words like A or THE. We all say UH and THUH, and left to his devices he would to. I hear it on radio commercials here in the deep south as well. Good ole boys and gals going out their way to not sound like rednecks (too late). Hey, know you wanted to say nuthin instead of nothing. Drop the pretense.

Obama goes out of his way to under pronuncicate words, dropping the g of the end of words as much as possible, unless he's in San Francisco.

And Hillary... Wow, anyone hear her when she travels thru the south. You would think she was raised on a plantation pickin' cotton back in the day.

I know this asking too much, but I'm gonna ask anyway, How bout ya'll drop all the acting (posing or frontin') and be yourselves.

A friend from Tennessee said he was happy when Jimmy Carter got elected "cause we finaly got a president without an accent!".


ATTITUDE: It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
