Mitt the Cracker

Mitt Romney joins the long line of yankee politicians who campaign in the South and think it’s a good idea to go native.

It’s usually a mistake unless you know what you’re doing. Something tells me if he keeps this up Mitt will use “y’all” to address an individual, and will pour milk on a big bowl of grits. As another cartoon character, Jessica Rabbit, once said: “I’m just drawn that way.”
