Before you totally pillory Hillary, read the speech..

Hillary Clinton gave a speech in church in Selma, Alabama on Sunday.  At one point in the speech she begins to channel a drawling southern black woman…you’ve probably seen the clip.

Please read the entire speech for context.  It’s not a bad speech.  Hillary is a panderer and it is my belief she would dance the forbidden dance of the lambada with the corpse of Lester Maddux in order to get elected to the Presidency, BUT, she’s getting a bad rap here.

Context, context, context…(and yes, her southern accent, uh, BLOWS).

    I’m never sure how to orally read written patois from poetry and hymns.

    I know that sounds nerdly of me, but I honestly don’t know which sounds dorkier–reading the patois in my own inflection or trying to read it in the writers’ intended inflections.

    I feel like an idiot either way. Ever since a disasterous performance of Robert Burns’ “A Man’s A Man For A’ That” in college, I’ve tried to avoid any thing similar.

    Seems like Hillary learned that lesson the hard way.

    But, as Robert Burns would say,

    Ye see yon birkie ca’d a lord,
    Wha struts, an stares, an a’ that?
    Tho hundreds worship at his word,
    He’s but a cuif for a’ that.
    For a’ that, an a’ that,
    His ribband, star, an a’ that,
    The man o independent mind,
    He looks an laughs at a’ that.
