As a native Georgian, the only thing that irks me about this whole thing is that West Virginian Paisley claims to be "Southern". Wearing a cowboy hat (or confederate flag), driving a pickup truck and playing country music does not make you Southern. It makes you a hick.

Thank you-canine34-Sorry you don't like "West Virginian" Paisley (and me) Hicks!Now I've spent more than a little time in Ga--I'm sure you've heard of 'Benning'; but are You familiar with Winder, Ga, how about Commerce, Ga-Damn! How do you reckon us "hicks" ever found those Metropolises ?

I'm hoping you do understand professionals (Music and others) play "name-games" for a living. Lighten up!?

Er, no. At least not by my lights. But maybe the country singer and the first-term senator are contenders for that title according to the attorney general of the United States, Eric Holder.

In 2009, Holder famously declared in a speech that America is a "nation of cowards" because it refuses to talk about race "enough." What constitutes enough race talk in our private time seems like a hard thing to quantify, and I'm not sure Holder has any idea how to do it either.

Holder was hardly the first, nor will he be the last,...
