Melissa Harris-Perry has her “corpse-man” moment. Ping to Today show list.

Don’t forget Obama referring to Navy “Corpse-men”.

She might want to just stop talking. It would be best for everyone.

oh please, you could tell her the Marine Corps motto was “Be Prepared” and she’d mindlessly repeat it, like they all do...

When I was in, we generally didn’t contract Fidelis.

well, i know it is Semper Fi with the long I... however, if she were reading it “phonetically” in Latin, it would be Semper Fee... Semperfeedelis in the Ecclesiastical pronunciation... in the Classical it would be SemperfIdelis with the short I... :)

Not to necessarily agree with Harris-Perry, but fi is an abbreviation of the word fidelis. The first I in fidelis is a long I and is correctly pronounced like the I in machine (think Adeste Fideles), ergo her pronunciation.

“Semper Fee” translates to “Always Charge Money”.

My local cable provider’s program description lists her as a political scientist. If she’s a political scientist, I’m a rocket scientist (the pointy end goes toward the sky).

And that’s exactly what she will say. She was simply falling back to the correct pronunciation of “fee-delis”, and didn’t realize that the Corps had taken artistic license...yadda yadda.
