It's awesome, because this lady is an elected official and she can barely read a simple speech.
(also-also: uh, go gators.)

The movie Idiocracy was all too prescient. :(
Also: lol, democracy
|kingarthur - 2009-03-19 |
Ack!-a-demic. De-FENCE! I bet she often goes skraight down the skreet to the skrimp shop to buy some skrawberries.
The thing is, the speech is reasonably well composed. It's just that particular accent and lack of reading ability that's the real issue here.

Gradulate. GRADULATE. POITS.

The speaker's got a real "oh shit her again" tone of voice when he gives her the floor
|YakooMarkTwo - 2009-03-19 |
I hope I didn't miss anything great - I heard "grad-yew-lay-shunz" and stopped watching.

So is Florida worse than Alabama yet?
|Senator_Unger - 2009-03-19 |
You know, if you don't watch her, she sounds *exactly* like Deputy Raineesha Williams.

FUCK. time to up my dose again.

Politicians who do this should be forced to resign.

You know, for some reason, I'm suddenly doubting this superb academic record that the University of Florida has.

From the Corrine Brown Wikipedia Article:
In July 2004 Brown was censured by the House of Representatives after she referred to the disputed 2000 presidential election in Florida as a "coup d'état" (pronounced "cootie-ta"). This comment came during floor debate over HR-4818, which would have provided for international monitoring of the 2004 U.S. presidential election.
maybe she's related to Pootie Tang

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I would like to take the opportunity to waste both your time and the taxpayer's money.
UF IS THE BEST ACADEMIC SCHOOL IN THE NATION.

Don't hate the playah. Hate the game!
|Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2009-03-19 |
Well at least she's not a teacher.

It is all too easy to make fun of this woman's accent, her pronunciation and her diction. However, what makes this truly wonderful in my opinion are the following:
okilhoma... soonaz (0:40)
everything is just not all equal. (3:02)

missing "black people" tag

BLACK PEOPLE TALK DIFFERENT
Congressmen do this all the time. They give dumb, stilted speeches about local news, often sports news, all the time. I agree that this is evil - but I am pretty astonished by how many people in this thread equate her accent and diction with "stupid"
Quite frankly, what I find remarkable is that she gave a speech about a football team. Nothing about politics, or economics, or anything else relevant to her job.

Holy fuck. I NEED TO RUN FOR OFFICE.
Menudo con queso
It's harder than it looks -- this level of folksy dumbness cannot be faked, and the one thing the slobbering hordes can do with 100% accuracy is sniff out inauthenticity.
just look at Saran Palin
|whensaidthemoon - 2009-03-19 |
This is your brain.
This is your brain on obnoxious gerrymandering that selectively snakes through areas of Jacksonville, Gainesville, and Tallahassee.
For added bonus points, her district cuts through northeast Florida in a way that selectively avoids all Republican strongholds, thus guaranteeing John Mica reelection for all eternity. Welcome to Florida.
