We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Itís funny on several levels. Her accent is preposterous of course Ė like somebody doing an insulting impression of a southern black woman.
I was laughing harder at what she was saying Ė finding things under the White House rugs. All I could think of was Rose firm billing records or Whitewater documents. She complains about cronies in the Bush administration like they are crony hacks. Hell, the Bushies have only fired a few Federal Prosecutors and probably didnít even replace the entire Travel Office.
I suppose I need to listen to the other examples of HC's linguistic behavior. I don't hear 'black' in this particular episode. I did hear affectations of 'southern cracker.' But as you say NJS, it is hilarious to conjure rugs and dust and compare closet's and skeleton's.
