Rachel Maddow: MSNBC host teaches America how to pronounce "Colorado" (VIDEO)
Last night, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow tackled common names of people and places that tend to be mispronounced, at least according to locals -- and praise be that the segment attempts to set America straight on the proper way to say "Colorado." As one viewer writes, "we say it colo RAD o, rad rhymes with dad. Not Coloraudo, rhymes with rod or cod. Anyone who does that sounds snobby." Hell, yeah!
See the entire clip below; the Colorado mention is at about the two minute mark. And as a bonus, check out a second snippet with local flavor, this one featuring AM 760 host David Sirota talking about his new book Back to Our Future, introduced by a clip from the similarly titled Back to the Future in which Doc Brown is threatened by... Libyans!
