Wasn't worth making a thread for so I just decided to post it here. How great is that?

It's a way to make fun of Southerners. "Bubba" is a very popular nickname for Southern males -- especially the older siblings in the family. It's the way younger siblings first manage to say "brother."

My good friend, YJ, is not trying to trash an entire demographic mind you. All of us have to chuckle at Clinton's rampant heterosexuality.

Reminds me of that joke--was it from Mark Twain?--about the southern politician who attempted to castigate his opponent in a most unusual way:   "My opponent is a known heterosexual!"

I think it started as a slur against his southern roots but true to form, Bill had the last laugh by embracing it. He always made the other side look foolish and he did it without seeming egotistical. He sure was fun to watch. And, he was a pretty good prez, unlike O' cinemascope.
