Iowa first lady slammed blacks, Easterners and Southerners as bad speakers
Lady, (and I use the term advisedly, but my momma taught me to be nice to strangers), at least I don't talk through my nose like ya'll Midwesterners.
That said, I have to admit she does have a point, other that the typical Democrat point (the one they hide under their hats). There are a lot of people in this country who can't speak (or write or read) a proper English sentence. They're not all illegal aliens, either--many of them were born right here in the good ol' USA. But due to a lack of education, a poor education (thanks to our vaunted educational system) or simply a failure on their own part, they don't have a proper command of the language.
However, our intrepid First Lady from Iowa apparently doesn't understand the difference between a regional accent and a lack of ability. I'm from the South, and proud of it. My accent is pronounced, and seems to be getting heavier as I age. I can turn it off by act of will and early training as a debater. But normally I don't--I like my accent, thanks.
Besides, it is a wonderful tool. Fools from all over think that because I talk "funny", I must be "slow". Heh. They usually don't get to make that mistake twice.
Thank ya'll fo readin'.
