"This am Alabama! We Talk English, Gol' Durn it!

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Tue, Apr 27, 2010 at 11:44 AM

OMG! What is up with the hillbillies lately? Not to be outdone by Arizona, Alabama steps right back up to the xenophobic plate with this gubernatorial campaign commercial from Republican Tim James (son of former 'Bama gov, Fob James—yes, I said "Fob"). However, I will concede that James makes at least one semi-valid point: Alabamians do tend to speak English—barely.

Seriously, this ad will blow your freaking mind.
