She's probably not. Of course, youneverknow.

But the point would be that, in her case, "g-drop" isn't said by even
the most left-wing, "socialist" political pundit to be just some
linguistic bullshit that she sometime fakes in those desparate moments
when politics requires her to make herself *appear* to be of the
now-disenfranchised, white masses and to obscure the fact that she's
really of the enfranchised-since-George-Washington elite.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
