47. Plain Speech/Plain Speak....wouln't it be WONDERFUL/WONDERFUL!
Edited on Wed Dec-15-04 06:38 PM by KoKo01
Just "CUT THE CRAP" and "SPIT IT OUT." I know what you are saying. "NUANCE" in the Southern Tradition doesn't cut it anymore. And it's our own Southerners who have gone on the ATTACK...they've lost touch with their roots...but we "mainstream and populist Dems have also lost touh with "OUR" roots that we can't come up against them...because we are sooooo "nuanced." Sad...
