Republican senator makes fun of how Southerners talk
by Tom Crippen
Thank you, George Voinovich of Ohio. The party’s on hard times, you want to analyze why, so what do you do? Make fun of how some population group talks:
Yeah, well, maybe what they’re saying isn’t too good either. Consider that as a source of your problems.
Making fun of how people talk is a great pleasure in life, but it should not be a default reflex. Somebody who makes it into one is probably a jerk.
