I may, as we say in the South, throw up.

Mitt Romney is trying to be a Southerner.

At an event in Mississippi today, he greeted the crowd at the Farmer's Market in Jackson by saying "Morning, y'all" and proclaiming he had "a biscuit and some cheesy grits" for breakfast.

Willard is also a fan of the musical act, Alabama.

Where precisely he stands on dippin', huntin', muddin' and "Hee Haw" is not yet known.
