A Southern education isn’t the the nearly same as what the Blue Bellies call education. It’s more pragmatic and focused more on common sense than on “book learning,” which is of somewhat less use in the still largely agrarian South.
This can cause odd events when outsiders such as Obama seek to interact with Southern school children in the course of furthering their political agendas.
At a recent visit to a rural elementary school in South Carolina, President Obama asked the children for total quiet.
He started to slowly clap his hands once every few seconds, holding the audience in total silence.
Then he dramatically intoned into the microphone, “Children, every time I clap my hands together, a child in America dies from gun violence.”
The kids looked horrified, except for a little boy sitting in the back row.
With a proud South Carolina drawl, Little Johnny pierced the silence and said: “Well, Dumbass, stop clapping!”
And so wise Little Johnny totally schooled Obama, and so, as well, precocious Little Johnny got his daddy audit by the IRS because Obama didn’t enjoy a Southern Education. 😆
