Old Carpet Bag

Has it ever been the practice of US presidential candidates to change their accents whenever they travel to various parts of the country on the campaign trail?

I know candidates try to identify with the voters, so they might be found wearing head gear or casual shirts common to various areas of the country, as they meet cowboys or steelworkers. They address their regional concerns. But pretend to talk like them?

You would have thought that Hillary would have been embarrassed after the last time this was brought to light by the blogosphere. But no, the woman has no shame. No shame at all.

The sad thing is that any Southerner willing to vote for her might actually be impressed her fake accent. As much as it pains me to say it, there are a few idiots in the southland.

H/T to Grit.

    Hi David,

    You have no idea, thanks to the liberal news media, as to how stupid Southerners can be. For a local example, we had a city councilman named Ricky Pete, who got caught taking a bribe, was convicted, served a few years in jail, got out, ran for his old office in the next election, and won! I swear we have a death wish.

    Oh, I have an idea. I was born a Southerner and never lived outside the South until I was 26. Even then I lived just 90 minutes north of the Ohio River and four miles north of one of the other great North/South dividing lines, US Hwy 40, for ten years.

    Thanks to the movie “Fargo”, I’ve had a taste of what Southerners must feel like.
