Romney sports fake Southern drawl

Hahaha, check out Mitt Romney's new phony Southern accent in the first segment of this new Obama campaign video...

Contrast that with his lack of accent in the rest of the video. His Dixie drawl seems to be something new he's acquired just in the past few days.

In fact, in the first few seconds of that clip, his voice sounds exactly like Bush's fake Southern accent, except Romney does a much better job of it. Romney was raised in Michigan and served as Governor of Massachusetts, but in those few seconds, he certainly sounds more Southern than almost anybody you'd hear in northern Kentucky.

He reminds me of how I once had a teacher from the Northeast who adopted a fake twang because she thought that's how folks in Kentucky talked.
