Howdy Doody and Buffalo (Michelle) Bob are going to have a great time. Square dancing called by Jed Biden, Hilly Mae will cook the grits and hocks and Revrum Jethro Jackson will say Grace.

All this to be followed by Banker Reid and his trusty secretary Nancy covering the room for donations.

Darius Rucker (aka Hootie of Hootie and the Blowfish) is certainly questionable as authentic country.

Inner Redneck!? I’m glad to hear that.

Cracker gets so tiresome sometimes when filling out forms, like that 1040.

Now I have something to fall back on.

"I hope his wife doesnt wear Daisy Dukes."

I can't wait to see the pics of her from the fest. What in the world will she wear? She'll be totally miserable, and it will show.

Hope those country folk hide the stills.

Also hope they can't get anyone. Then they would probably appoint a “Country Music” tsar.

Can you just see some regulations being written up even now!

I guess attending that NASCAR race today really brought about a change in Michelle.

Do they really, really think this is going to make us Christian folks suddenly fall in love with him and vote for him? Next I expect him to walk into some rural store all dressed in Filson gear and ask, "Can I get me a huntin' license here?"
