Obama and Hillary -- riddle me this ...

It has become mandatory for Dem candidates to preach at the pulpits of melanin-enriched churches (while some pundits decry appearances at Pulpits of Pallor as signs of the coming theocracy).

Listening to audio clips of HRC and Barry, I find it curious that they both start slipping into "black" accents.

Funny how they don't slip into Spanish accents in front of Latino audiences.

Well, you're right up to a point, SeƱora Darleen.

But, the reason most candidates don't slip into Spanish accents is quite simple. In most cases, most candidates can actually speak Spanish in front of Latin-American audiences.

GOP candidates do this a lot. Especially in Florida.....

We never have to worry about GOP candidates slipping into "black" accents, but their predilection to quote 8-year-old rap songs in an attempt to connect with black audiences is at least as troubling.

geez, Josh you're tedious

Leave aside that the largest consumers of rap "music" are the melanin-challenged, what you have is a generational gap...one where an older adult attempts a little "hipness" by saying things outside of his/her generation

it's the friggin stuff of commercial advertising fer crissakes! (a teacher saying "I'm jiggy with that")

Geez, Darleen, you're credulous. Tell, me, then, what songs does Romney quote to white children when he tries to bridge the generational gap?
