Y'all been readin' her memoirs lately? I was lookin' at some website recently where they was fixin' to quote her ACTUAL PRINTED WORDS IN BOOK FORM and what just about jumped off the page at me like some startled baby bullfrog was how she was droppin' her Gs all over the dadgum place. I reckon I don't mind a little folksy idiom if I'm settlin' down with a book by a professional Southerner, but hellfire if she wasn't elidin' the heck out of her present participles and gerunds.

I tell you what, I was just about hoppin' mad that this know-it-all Yankee website was misquotin' our Miss Paula, on account of how no self-respectin' author would  LITERALLY PRINT ALL HER WORDS THE WAY SHE WANTS THEM TO SOUND IN YOUR HEAD WITHOUT A HINT OF IRONY OR THE EXCUSE THAT SHE'S PHONETICALLY QUOTING A FICTIONAL CHARACTER RATHER THAN EXPRESSING HER OWN ACTUAL THOUGHTS IN NARRATIVE PROSE. But by cracky, sure enough, I got to Googlin' it, and it was true. I 'bout said to my Momma, "Well, shee-it, Momma! Lord a-mighty, ain't nobody perfect these days, not even our Miss Paula Deen!" Well, Momma didn't like hearin' that, and I got one heck of a whuppin'. But I love my Momma and I love Miss Paula Deen, so I reckon it'll all come out square in the end.

/except for the racist martyr bullshiat, she can rot in hell for that.
//also the food, which I'm just now getting a look at... Christ on a deep-fried cracker, what is wrong with this woman?!

Liz Lemon: FTFA: Deen said she didn't know if African Americans are offended by the n-word. "It's very distressing for me to go into my kitchens and I hear what these young people are calling each other," she told Lauer. She said she had never joined the use of that language.

She can't have it both ways.

If she really, REALLY doesn't know whether or not African Americans are offended by the N-word, she is more ridiculously stupid than even I thought possible. Also - you don't have to be black to be offended by the N-word. I am lily white, and it makes me sick to hear the N-word coming out of people's mouths. (And please don't start some ridiculous argument with me saying, ..."But rap music". But before you ask, yes, it bothers me there too because to me it trivializes the long and sordid history of the use of the word by making it nothing more than some retarded jingle.)

If we are to take her at her word, that her ignorance of this word is real, then why exactly is it "distressing" for her to go into her kitchens to hear what young people are calling each other?

Oh, that's right - it's because she's lying.

You are either a racist or you're not. Had someone robbed me at gunpoint, at any point in time, it would honestly NEVER occur to me to refer to that person with a racial slur of all things. Wouldn't even cross my mind. Would I call them a motherfarker? Yes, I would. I would also use all other manner of profanity. But my point is, I don't care WHAT this guy did or didn't do to her, this excuse of hers is stupid.

And? 30 years ago was 19 farking 83. Not 1950. That excuse is bullshiat too. She's a vile woman, who already deceived her adoring fans once, by hiding her diabetes from them while teaching them how to prepare food that would have a better chance of having them contract Type II Diabetus (much less heart disease) because coming clean would've been bad for her brand. I'd say we know very clearly now what a piece of self-serving shiat she is.

I hope she keeps talki ...


Yeah, yeah.  Right there with you, but what is your problem with motherfarkers?

The funny thing is that the "I is what I is" may have been put into Paula's head by a racist joke.  As Gawker points out, the old joke goes:

There was a black guy and a white guy. They were debating over
whether god was white or black. The white guy said that there
was only one way to find out and that is to pray. So they go up
on a hill and they pray, and pray, and pray. Finally they here a
voice say, "I am what I am." The white guy jumps up, and says,
"AHA I told you he was white." The black guy jumps up and says,
"What do you mean? That didn't prove anything." "Yes it did,
Because if he was black he would've said I is what I is."

I have yet to speak to a black person who cares.


Haven't been able to make any black friends, eh?  Keep trying.  They're a highly selective group and very discerning of subtle racial agendas.  It's all in the generalization manual.
