"The bloody VOICE!!!"
The bloody VOICE!!!
[Drives the loons NUts!!! Perhaps we should send Apache helicopters over Afghanistan to play Sarah Palin recordings on loudspeakers to drive Al-Qaeda from their caves..]
Belatedly doing my homework and watching the Gibson interview. Forget the content (or lack thereof), the only things I hear are nasality, rising inflections, strange and arbitrary emphasis on words and, and......NUKULAR
[Uh, uh, umm... Well, I umm...certainly ah, ummm...happy that uh...that is, Obama's uh, voice, doesn't ummm...bother you.]
Oh geez...Hillary and that fake northeastern accent...fingernails on chalkboard. Palin's reminds me of Francis McDormand (sp?) from her role in Fargo
[Actually Hillary's normal accent is that of suburban Chicago. The rest of the time she is doing either a fake southern or fake northeastern accent.]
Great minds think alike. I already call Palin. "Marge Gunderson."
[Yah! Actually I like the Marge Gunderson accent.]
Lindsey Graham and Phill Gramm. Their voices SUCK and its not the southern thing either because I grew up and still live in the south. I know I've complained about their voices too. Palin's voice is just plain horrible.
[And you will be hearing a lot more of her voice for years to come. Hee! Hee!]
Oh I complain about liebermans voice. GOD it irritates me to no end x( I can't listen to him I have to turn him off. Worse than listening to boosh and I'd definitely prefer listening to nails on a chalkboard than hear one peep outta liebermans maw.
[Lieberman's voice sounds sort of like an adenoidal Elmer FUdd. However he does look like a muppet.]
I ALWAYS think of the guy on Alf! Sounds just like him!
[Perhaps but when I see Lieberman speak, he reminds me of a muppet.]
Chris Matthews, Joe Lieberman, Bush*, Lindsey Graham all have HORRIBLE voices that make me want to throw a shoe through my t.v. whenever I hear them. Oh, and Rod Decker, a local newsman has the worst voice on the planet.
[Chris Matthews sounds like a honking goose whenever he blurts "HA!"]
What can possibly be worse than Jaaames Sensennnnnbrennnnnerrrrr? Also, the voices and accents of so many other Republican senators. O Mi God. Oh, jesus. Is there anything worse? Republicans are such ugly people. Ugly in manner, ugly in attitude, ugly in vocal expressions, ugly in "vallyuhs" (values) and dumb as mud. People with ugly world views are almost uniformly ugly in all their traits, thoughts, expressions, appearances. It can never successfully be concealed.
[Of course, this DUmmie thinks that the Code Pink freaks appear perfectly normal.]
Reagan's condescending tone drove me nuts.
[There you go again!]
The sound of Bush's voice makes me want to scream. The way he mangles the language is far worse than his fake Texas drawl which he's so proud of. He tries to use big words but even when they're written in very large letters he still manages to fumble them. Chertoff's voice is nerve wracking too. Rumsfeld's voice is brittle and sarcastic and I'm glad he's no longer doing his crappy immitation of being a human being on TV. Sean Hannity is shrill and hits you like machine gun bullets. Swartzennegger's limited vocabulary and thick accent makes you wonder why he hasn't dropped some of that accent after all these years. It makes me think he's too lazy to pronounce words that he hears on a daily basis. He can't pronounce the 'th' in that. It still comes out as 'dat'.
[Believe it or not, one of the most difficult sounds in English for foreign speakers to pronounce is "th". It seems easy but many foreign speakers just can't do it. Maybe something you have to pick up early on. I notice the same problem with the way "R" and double "R" is pronounced in Spanish. Most Americans can't do it correctly. Your humble correspondent can but that is because of early training in that idiom.]
Someone Called It "Fargoese" After the movie...a bit of Canadian with a touch of lumberjack. :rofl:
[Mixed in with a bit of Bullwinkle.]
I can't wait for the debate. I know they get some of the questions before hand, but she can't stand up to Joe's on the spot questions.
[Assuming that Joe is even on the Democrat ticket by the time the debate begins.]
