Tim James Speaks English

By now I'm sure you've all heard about Tim James, son of Alabama's worst governor in modern times, whose millionaire-financed campaign has so far failed to get him in first place among Republican nominees for governor of Alabama. In desperation, James has begun pandering to the racist-ignoramus demographic with an advertisement about driver's license tests.

But in the age of YouTube, that sort of thing can quickly be turned against you:


  1. Matt,

    That video is one of the funniest things I've seen in a good long while. W'only gonna git them drivin' tests in En'lish, yessiree Bob. Thanks for posting it.

  2. That is a scream. I'd say I can't believe it but having many kin in AL and GA I can. Think I'll put it on my FB just for grins. Thanks. I do love it.

  3. Should have added that the video is a fine example of a very effective way to deal with the right-wingers' persistent stupidity and meanness: mockery and ridicule worthy of Aristophanes. It's cruel, I know, but they do it to liberals all the time on no grounds at all. Difference is that when our meanies do it, it has the added edge of ostracism that only a genuinely edjikated person can provide (like this radio guy with his references to theater teachers and such). And the dipshorts richly deserve it, so for them, I say, "Tear-falling pity dwells not in this dino's eye."

    Well, keep on a-mockin'.

    "Only the wonly, down down down shooby-doo-wa."

  4. It's hilarious, Matt.

  5. Juss a hoot, I tell ya. Perhaps it is time to resurrect my southern-speak dictionary (for the third time this year) to share with y'all::

    Heidi – A greeting

    Hire yaw’ll – After they say “heidi,” you say “hire yaw’ll”

    Bard – past tense of the infinitive “to borrow” as in “He bard my pick-up truck.”

    Munts – There are 12 munts in a year

    All – A lubricant

    Bawl – What water does at 212 degrees Fahrenheit

    If you are the son of the worst governor in Alabami history and you speak only Timlish, just remember: Wives and girlfriends can climb a tree faster than your cat.

  6. Gawl-lee -- yawler meanol ferner lovin' librells, aincha? Ahmoan membah thisun. wergoan rahsagin, y'know.

    Alabama. It's there to give Mississippi something to look down on.

  7. Credit where credit's due.

    James doesn't just speak the talk.

    Must be the businessman in 'em.
