This is the second time now that Whoopi has called Sarah Palin’s plain-spoken way of talking as “ebonics.” Excuse me? Ebonics is a cultural and street thing; being plain-spoken is a southern and midwestern down-home thing. They are not even CLOSELY related to each other. And Joy thinks folks would rather hear people who talk like her??? Please! This whole crew insults all of middle America and the south who are SICK of Northeastern and politic-speak. They still do not just get it, or they are blinded by the Palin-Derangement Syndrome, that the everyday American related to Sarah because she spoke the way she spoke and we understood her.
Joy then pipes up “AND SHE WASN’T EVEN VETTED!” Oh, yeah, like your boy Obama was? No reporters or lawyers parachuted into Chicago to dig up things about him, and if they did, I’m sure we might not like what we would have found out. In fact, I dare say that we probably know more about Sarah Palin than we do about the Chosen One.
Oh, and Whoopi, I wouldn’t go making fun of Sarah for her language, when in the same breath, you say you don’t think we want leaders who speak in “sorta regaluh ol’ terms.”
