I am loving seeing those pics of Lloyd Maines playing with Natalie on the Capitol steps.

Having known (and played with) Lloyd for years, they should've handed him the mic.

He would have lit that crowd on fire.

Natalie is a direct line from Dear Old Dad.

BTW, Lloyd made the Dixie Chicks.

Mumpsimus - it's a Republican thang

mumpsimus

mump·si·mus
muhmp-suh-muhs
noun, plural mump·si·mus·es for 2.
1.
adherence to or persistence in an erroneous use of language, memorization, practice, belief, etc., out of habit or obstinacy (opposed to sumpsimus ).
2.
a person who persists in a mistaken expression or practice (opposed to sumpsimus ).

Origin:
1520–30; from a story, which perhaps originated with Erasmus, of an illiterate priest who said mumpsimus rather than sūmpsimus (1st plural perfect indicative of Latin sūmere to pick up; see consume) while reciting the liturgy, and refused to change the word when corrected
