Harold Ford to New York: ‘Y’all Talk Funny’
Monday, January 25, 2010 at 12:34 pm
In a dark month for progressives, the nascent and inexplicable New York Senate bid of former Rep. Harold Ford (D-Tenn.) has provided a little levity. Here, for example, is one of the stranger exchanges in a radio interview he did with Fred Dicker.
The two bantered about the difference between New York and Tennessee, with Dicker poking fun at Ford for pronouncing “smear” (as in: “I’ve been the victim of a smear campaign on my position on choice”) as “schmear”, prompting this exchange:
Dicker: “I think schmear is something you put on a bagel.”
Ford: “I’m a little country. I apologize…It’s “smear”, s-m-e-a-r. Y’all talk funny.”
