Hillary didn't even live on the south side of Chicago, let alone the Mason Dixon line, LOL
I had a FReeper PM me an article giving Hillary a pass because she "lived in the south for 17 years".
I'm born/raised here and the only time I've ever heard people talking like Hillary did is when they're mocking a southern accent.
Hillary is as phony as her Southern accent.
The Clintons are to America what e.coli is to an open buffet.
hillary's accent aside for the moment, I know what you mean. I generally do not have an accent (many good folks in Jersey have told me as much). I too am from a small Texas town (Seguin). I also lived in Houston for 21 years. I know that if I'm around a group of friends (Texans, particularly east Texans for some reason), I tend to speak with a drawl. And when my grandfathers were alive, I would speak to them in Spanish and with an accent. As for hillary, from the clip I saw and heard, she was quoting James Cleveland and I guess she was trying to impersonate his accent.
That was my first thought, but only for a second. Then I realized I should feel sorry for the black people in the audience.
She insulted them to a degree almost beyond belief. I just am amazed that they have regressed so far from 1964. She talked to them like they were a crowd of house boys and plantation workers and they lapped it up.
Her delivery, along with the speech's content, was the most racist and insulting public spectacle I have seen by a politician in years. How could Hillary (in private) have any respect for a group of people that are so willing to prostitute their dignity and self reliance to such insulting pandering? Of course she doesn't. Nor do any of her ilk.
How do we stop people that are so intent on formenting hatred as these Democrats? How can we when there are so many, so willing to embrace this baldface racism and hatred? I literally had to turn it off so I could finish my lunch it was so sickening.
Supposedly, the target of her wrath was one Paul Frey, Bill's campaign manager when he ran unsuccessfully for the House of Representatives in 1974. Frey, interestingly, wasn't even Jewish. There is much more about Hillary's finest moment here.
Thanks for the ping!

Great site reference, thank you for posting the connection.
I mailed him back asking him if he was raised in the south.
Twelve years ago, when our country needed new leadership, Americans elected a Democrat who gave us eight years of peace, prosperity, and promise. Tonight I have the pleasure of introducing the last great Democratic President.
But first I want to say a few words about the next great Democratic president, John Kerry.
We meet at a moment of great peril, but also of great hope. Together we can widen the circle of opportunity for all Americans, transcend our differences and divisions, and give our children a safer and more secure future. That's the promise of America. And John Kerry will renew that promise.
However, we know today that she would alter this to fit the audience. Here's the same speech run through a Jive Translator

Dat's de promise uh America. Sheeeiit. And Raz'tus Kerry gots'ta renew dat promise. What it is, Mama!
When I explained the context of the speech she asked me to play it again. This time she was literally speechless. I played it a third time and she became downright angry and asked how stupid does Clinton think we are.
Best wishes to you Lady
"On March 4, 2007, Senator Hillary Clinton recited lyrics from the song "Can't Give Up Now" at a predominately black church in Selma Alabama on the anniversary of the famous march over the bridge in Selma, AL. Senator Clinton was criticized for using a fake southern black dialect in her attempt to woo the black vote from Senator Barack Hussein Obama who was campaigning for president simultaneously in Selma, AL. at the time."

Out of the mouths of babes.
I saw that Clip Yesterday on Brit's Show, and didn't know whether to Laugh or Cry! : ) :(
Thanks for the links.
I can't believe that you actually heard the clip. That wasn't a Southern accent - it was more like a second grade student trying to imitate a Civil War era Southern Black. It was totally condescending.
