How to pronounce "Republican"
We need to do for the word Republican what Limbaugh has done for liberal--make it a term of abuse and derision. Of course, Limbaugh is paid to do what he does--pharmaceuticals are so expensive these days--and we do what we do because we believe, but the technique is the same.
Syllable by syllable, re-PUB-li-can:
Re--Draw your chin back and in, and flare your nostrils as if you were being assaulted by a foul odor;
PUB--Make the p and b plosive, as if you were expelling something noxious you'd bitten into;
li--Make your jaw slack and moronic; the vowel should not be an i as in hit, but an uh as in Duh;
can--Drop your chin, so the final syllable trails off into a mumble; this vowel, too, should be pronounced uh.
And practice, practice, practice!
