I ain't never gunna say "gunna"

The current Republican presidential nominating process has led to an abnormally high number of speeches. Sadly, lots of the public pronouncements make me want to puke.

Presidential wannabes ranging from hillbillies like Perry and Cain, and even Harvard-educated Romney (and Harvard-educated actual-presidents Obama and Bush) seem to be unable to say the simple phrase, "going to."

People who say "gunna" should have their diplomas revoked.
