The old "shuck and jive"...

Shuckin' and jivin' (or shucking and jiving) is a slang term primarily used by African Americans. It refers to the speech and behavioral mechanisms adopted in the presence of an authoritative figure [1]. Shuckin' and jivin' usually involves clever lies and impromptu storytelling, used to one-up an opponent or avoid punishment [2]. Such behavior is believed to have originated in the era of slavery [3].

I'm going to use shuck and jive in the Hazzard County dialect tonight.

Shuck #1

The health care reform won't cover illegal aliens.

Jive #1

Illegal aliens were already "covered" by the federal law prohibiting hospitals from turning anyone in need of care away.

Jive #1 addendum

The US taxpayer was already footing the bill for the illegal alien taking advantage of Jive #1.

Jive #2 for shuck #1

The health care reform covers all citizens of the US. The amnesty is coming. See Shuck #1 and refer again to jive #2 of shuck #1.

Shuck #2

George Bush was a loser. He is the reason people died during Katrina for his lack of response.

Jive #1 for Shuck #2

It took George Bush about 5 days to organize a task force for Katrina relief. The oil rig explosion happened eleven days ago today. What has O done? Since the libs have held Bush accountable for all of the lives lost in NO, I'll personally hold O responsible for all of the marine life that floats to the top, well, just under the oil.

Shuck #3

The AZ "illegal immigrant" law is unconstitutional, unjust, unfair, will cause more prejudice, harassment and profiling.

Jive#1 for Shuck #3

"The Law" is nearly verbatim of the US constitution. AZ passed the law to unshuck the schmucks in DC. Since the feds don't do it, the state will, and should, and will. Good for them. When will the rest of the states follow?

Shuck #4

Government oversight is good.

Jive #1 for Shuck #4

Huh? What have they ever done correctly, efficiently, in a timely manner, and without driving us deeper into debt?
