Hey, Mitt, Maybe Your NASCAR Team-Owning Buddies Will Give You a Rebel Flag to Pin Up In Your Garage!

Mitt Romney got in touch with his inner Southerner on Thursday during a campaign stop in the heart of Mississippi, telling a crowd of supporters he was "learning to say 'y'all' " and developing a taste for grits.

After accepting Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant's endorsement, Romney turned his attention to his bodyguard, Garrett Jackson — a Mississippi native — whom he credits for his transformation into an "unofficial Southerner."

"He is now turning me into an, I don't know, an unofficial Southerner," Romney said. "And I'm learning to say 'y'all' and I like grits. Strange things are happening to me."
Rmoney has to seriously think that most Southerners flunked out around fifth grade if he thinks that people are going to buy this swill.

There's a fine line between "pandering' and "patronizing" and it seems to me that ol' Willard has tromped over it with both of his handmade-loafer-shod feet.

Unfortunately there are a large number of southerners who actually did flunk fifth grade... and most of them have been elected to the state legislatures.

Not all of us though.

My question is, are the trees the right height in Mississippi?

I would think that signs reading "mitt, Are Our Trees the Right height?" should appear at all of his rallies.
