WashPost's Parker Distinguishes Between 'Countrified' Folk and 'Smart, Sophisticated People'

We always seem to find the character who seems a little countrified who can't just fathom all this

On "Meet the Pressthis weekend, The Washington Post's Kathleen Parker distinguished between "countrified" folk, apparently hampered by southern accents, and "smart, sophisticated people."

Referring to a new anti-Obamacare ad targeting Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) by Americans for Prosperity, Parker responded negatively to the "countrified" couple in the ad who speak with thick southern accents and express confusion about the unwieldy healthcare law, suggesting that there's a difference between southerners and "smart, sophisticated people":

“I think you could find someone who doesn't have a southern accent who is confused by this act. Umm... we always seem to find the character who seems a little countrified who can't just fathom all this. ...You know there are plenty of smart, sophisticated people who are equally hazy as to what’s going on here.”
