When music and pie charts collide

Found this here:

The Dialectizer

OK, so this has nothing to do with farming, the weather, politics, etc. Well, a little bit politics, but just for demostration purposes.

Here's the first three paragraphs of an article about Obama:

COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - Democrat Barack Obama ridiculed the idea of being Hillary Rodham Clinton's running mate Monday, saying voters must choose between the two for the top spot on the fall ticket.
The Illinois senator used his first public appearance of the week to knock down the notion that he might accept the party's vice presidential nomination. He noted that he has won more states, votes and delegates than Clinton so far.
"I don't know how somebody who is in second place is offering the vice presidency to the person who is first place," Obama said, drawing cheers and a long standing ovation from about 1,700 people in Columbus, Miss.

Now, here it is run through the Dialectizer, set to Jive:

COLUMBUS, Miss.

Welcome to warm, sunny Southern Iowa

With the recent warmup, our roads have turned to mud. Unless you've got 4wd, chances are you won't make it through these kinds of spots.
