My assumption was the manner in which the state name would be pronounced by a stereotypical Asian.

Now wait a minute...this is the direct fault of the liberals. They started this whole victim mentality thing back in the day, and now they don't like it when the shoe's on the other foot!




I don't believe any of that, but I like being contrary. I'm a contrarionist!

I think I'm OK with missing the train to Okrahoma, sounds like a bumpy ride.

Now, now, I've found his worldview to make perfect sense. I mean, if you were trained to completely dismiss any bad word about the president and his party as political lies by the opposition, getting from point A to point B is pretty clear.
